Skydive DeLand was established in 1982 and has become known world wide as a professional training center for world class skydivers of every experience level. Each year we make thousands of jumps and offer first time jump experiences on a daily basis. Skydive Deland offers the tandem skydive and the Accelerated Freefall Course that teaches people to become certified skydivers.

Skydive DeLand has a full service restaurant and bar on the premises, The Perfect Spot that offers great food and a fun atmosphere. Come in, relax and watch the skydivers through the glass wall or on the deck while you grab a bite to eat.

For any "ole timer" who wants to make a "Resurrection Jump" and get back into the sport of Skydiving, I feel Deland is the place to do it !!! They DO have an Instructor there who specializes in retraining and recertifying "retired jumpers" who are over 60 years of age. Yup! They have fully qualified "dinosaur trainer" (grin). This young...

I've lived in DeLand over 55 years. 40 of those years were within 1/2 mile from the landing spot for the skydivers. We cam see them leap our of the aircraft, free fall and finally pull the rip chord. Beautiful sight. You can also go out to a restaurant at the airport and see them up close and personal.

Wow! What a brilliant way to spend a Sunday morning. Just back from completing a tandem jump with my wife at Skydive Deland. Couldn't have picked a better or more professional place to do our first ever jump. From the first email contact through to completing the jump everything was first class. We'd had to reschedule twice due to bad... More

FREE Fun activity for anyone with a little patience. Watch skydivers load up, ascend, and then parachute down. I called, but it seemed you can't plan schedules. Skydivers just show up! We were there on a weekday afternoon and there was plenty of activity. Planes took up 5, 14+, and 8 skydivers one after the other. There is wait time... More

There are actually two parts to Skydive DeLand that are both amazing. One is being able to watch or be a participant in skydiving. The facility itself is made for observation, with ample seating both in the sun as well as covered patios. You can also watch the divers fold their chutes in the open-ended buildings for just that purpose.... More

There were four of us that skydived. Everyone was extremely nice. We watched a short instructional video and went in to suit up. My tandem diver was very nice and informative. We all had a blast. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in skydiving.

I didn't go to skydive because I am only 14 but my uncle and my big brother went and when they came. Back they were talking all about it and they said If your looking for an adventure you should do it and I said to him when I am older I will go with you
