The Great Lakes Skydiving Difference
Why Great Lakes Skydiving is the ONLY real choice for skydiving in the Chicago, Madison, and Milwaukee areas.
Reason #1: Great Lakes Skydiving uses only state of the art skydiving equipment.
Due to the high level of experience of our instructors, and our use of the best equipment available, we can accommodate persons weighing as much as 250 LBS. There are hand full of small part time operators in the mid west U.S. that will impose strict weight limits and will not take persons weighing over 220 lbs. Although you may not weigh this much, this should be a concern. It is an indication of lack of experience and/or the modern equipment necessary to handle larger individuals which puts you closer to the limit of their experience or equipment. Don't push the limit, skydive with the PROFESSIONALS! You're worth it!
Reason #2: We offer the highest skydive you can make!
At Great Lakes Skydiving, your skydive is made from 14,000 feet ! The HIGHEST, most exciting SKYDIVE available, out of the safest aircraft serving the Great Lakes region! When 20th Century Fox needed the best skydiving airplane for their movie POINT BREAK, they chose ours. That's right, that was our plane used in all the skydiving scenes for the movie.
Reason #3: The largest skydiving training facility in the Mid West U.S.
Great Lakes Skydiving offers the largest and most full featured skydiving environment anywhere, including:
- 1,600 square feet of matted, indoor parachute packing area for your comfort and convenience.
