Flying through the air with the greatest of ease isn’t just for daring young people on the flying trapeze. Anyone can do it! At least anyone can fly through the air, the ease comes with practice. And practice you can, at Skydive Arizona™. As the world’s largest skydiving center, it boasts an average of 135,000 jumps every year, a drop zone with uninhabited desert terrain for miles in every direction and an experienced staff of coaches, pilots and videographers. Located in Eloy, it is almost halfway between Phoenix and Tucson (Arizona’s two largest cities) and is about an hour’s drive from either city’s center. The clear desert weather allows you the choice of any of the 340 flying days that Skydive Arizona™ has each year. Both first-timers and professionals are welcome. You must be 18 years of age to skydive at Skydive Arizona™. If you’re over the age of 18, this may be the perfect experience to cross off your bucket list and you’ll even have proof of your daring feat! Photos and video are both available for purchase so you can watch your freefall with friends and family after you’ve returned safely back to Earth.
Our own Joe had an experience he will never forget:
“Skydiving was both the most terrifying and one of the most exciting experiences of my life. My best friend and I went after a few years of trying out get a group of people to go. We would set a date and then, as it approached, one person would cancel then another and another. So, finally, we decided to go just the two of us. Our plan was simple, we would go knowing the other would not chicken out because if they did, we would never hear the end of it. We chose Skydive Arizona because it was a quick drive from where he lived. I have to say, we could not have picked a better place. They made us comfortable every step of the way. I think they could tell we were terrified. The actual experience is something that cannot be described. In a word, it was “thrilling” and should be done at least once in anyone’s lifetime.”
