There is no skydiving drop zone in Gilmer, Longview, Tyler, Henderson, or Nacogdoches, Texas, as we are the ONLY skydiving facility in East Texas. Don't pay more with a multi-sport or network ticket agency on the internet. Come to us directly and pay less. While searching on the Internet you will come across many options for skydiving. Many of these options are actually ticket agencies or what they refer to as “networks” that appear to be in or serve a town close to you. These can have many names, or are multi-sport websites that you can buy certificates from. If you purchase a skydiving certificate from these ticket agencies or networks, you may get sent to a place two to four hours away to redeem it when another drop zone may be closer to you. The prices seem comparable but a real drop zone will not charge you a packing fee, tandem class fee, or a handling fee after they get your credit card number. A real drop zone will only ask you for a $50 deposit to make an appointment and will not require you to pay for everything over the phone unless you are buying a gift certificate for someone else. Please feel free to ask for a physical address and make sure that it is a place that they actually own. Most drop zones will welcome a visit to their skydiving facility before you jump if you wish to do so. Please research before you buy something over the phone or the Internet.
