What a rush! Great place to jump. If you are thinking about jumping - stop thinking and book it at Skydive STL.
Thanks for an awesome experience today!
My husband (Rocky Kegg) and I did our first jump today!!! These guys are so great!! I'm a big chicken when it comes to doing this kind of stuff but, I couldn't let hubby do it without me and tell me how great it was afterwards!!!! Lol!! I am totally glad that I did it and EXTREMELY glad that I chose Skydive STL!!!! Thank you Noah and Lee for the most awesome view!!!!😁
Have a skydive scheduled on Monday but came out today to watch some others jump, everyone was extremely nice and the pilot ( I'm bad about not asking names) was pretty funny. Looking forward to Monday.
Thanks for the amazing experience this morning!
Serious question: How come you all don't allow fun jumpers? Seems to me you could make more money by allowing them or maybe I'm wrong about that.

I'm not bitching or complaining (ok maybe a little cuz it'd be reeeeeeal nice to have a dz 30 minutes from my home lol) but I'm generally curious the reasoning behind it.

I'm guessing maybe insurance/liability reasons or what?

I'll sign however many waivers ya want fyi! 😁

You take a drink with your friends, and somebody says, ‘Yeah, we should go skydiving tomorrow!” You go, ‘Yeah, we’ll go skydiving tomorrow!’ ‘Yeah! Yeah!’ Everybody goes, ‘Yeah!’ Then that night, you’re laying in your bed and you just keep, ‘Uh, uh.’ You’re terrified. You keep imagining over and over again jumping out of an airplane, and you can’t figure out why you would do that. You wake up the next day, and you go down you said you were going to meet, and everybody’s there. You get in the van and be like, ‘Oh my God. Oh my God.’ Your stomach is terrible. You can’t eat and everything, but you don’t want to be the only punk who doesn’t jump out of this airplane. You fly, and you go up, you go up, you go up, and you go up to 14,000 feet.

“Somebody opens the door, and in that moment, you realize you’ve never been in a freaking airplane with the door open. You’re looking out down to death. They say, ‘On three,’ and they say, ‘One, two,’ and he pushes you on two because people grab on three. You go, ‘Ahhh.’ You fall out of the airplane. In one second, you realize that it’s the most blissful experience of your life. You’re flying. There’s zero fear. You realize at the point of maximum danger is the point of minimum fear. It’s bliss. Why were you scared in your bed the night before? What do you need that fear for? Everything up to the stepping point, there’s actually no reason to be scared. It only just ruins your day. The best things in life are on the other side of terror, on the other side of your maximum fear, are all of the best things in life.” - Will Smith
Adrenaline pumpin just watching the videos, can't wait for my first dive at 55!
Love my reactions you caught🤣 we will be returning!! #soproudofmyself #thankyou
Thanks to you all for an amazing jump! My wife and I loved it and will do it again!
I don’t know how I can go back to normal life now. That was the most fun I think I have ever had . Your team is awesome . I was honored to share the plane with my new first time skydive friend😀sorry I didn’t get her name. Can’t wait to get my videos and pictures. Skydive St. Louis you will be seeing me again soon.

"Vaya con Dios" Has anyone else ever found themselves itching for a skydive after watching Point Break?? Jared did, and he followed through the next morning and booked a sunrise skydive. Looks like he discovered what the hype is all about 🤙🪂

We all remember exactly where we were 20 years ago in this exact moment of tragedy. 20 years later we still feel the resilience of our country and the love for friend, neighbor, first responder, and service member that united us. We want to honor the lives lost and the families of anyone impacted on the day of 9/11 and in the years following. If you have a person you want to memorialize, or a story to tell, we would love to hear it.

Sheila has jumped every week for the past three weeks in a row since her first ever skydive with us! She brought her sister Stacey out to celebrate her birthday today... Any guesses who she is bringing next week for jump #4?? Tell us your best guess in the comments!

We love this dad giving his son classic advice even while skydiving, "do as I say not as I do" 🤣... Unless it's skydiving, definitely do that! 🪂

Sunset skydives just have a different kind of magic don't they?!

We can't think of a better way to think people for their hard work on Labor Day than by throwing them out of airplanes and giving them the experience of a lifetime!!

Happy Labor Day all! We hope you have an amazing day that feels like these photos look!
😍🪂🤙

Good morning! It's starting to feel like fall might be rolling in with these cool morning temperatures! Depending on where you are in the world, there are a lot of very good times to go skydiving – and also some less-good times to go skydiving. While it is entirely possible to jump from airplanes in the middle of winter (for example, skydiving has been done at both the North Pole and in Antarctica), there are some sensible practicalities involved that make skydiving operations in a lot of places a seasonal thing. Here at Skydive STL in the temperate midwest, we operate from March to October. This year, we’ll wrap up the 2021 skydiving season on November 28. Book your skydive before the season ends!

Let's talk about these awesome harnesses! Did you know they are specially designed for the sport of tandem skydiving and equipped to hold 15,000 lbs??? Yes, you read that right, 15,000 lbs. That is essentially the weight of 5 cars!

There are four attachment points where your harness secures to your instructor; two on the top by your shoulders, and two on the bottom by your hips. The top two connection points can each handle 5,000 lbs of weight. The bottom two can each handle 2,500 lbs. That means that if even only one of your clips is connected, you aren't going anywhere 😉

Furthermore, you need to completely remove all weight bearing on the attachment points to unclip them, so it is almost physically impossible to unclip while you are hanging in the harness. Needless to say, we take safety pretty seriously in this sport!🤙🪂

Nerves are normal before a skydive, common in fact. Danna was definitely nervous for her skydive, but she also knew that she could do it, even if she had to close her eyes at first ;) We are so proud of you Danna and so glad you had an amazing skydive! Thank you for trusting us!

Wondering if there is a good place for friends and family to watch your skydive?! Our skydiving center is very spectator friendly! We have two separate areas where they can hang out and have a front row seat to all the action 😉 Our staff will even do their best to help them find the plane in the sky and watch you in freefall from the ground! The more the merrier, we love a good cheerleading section!

Did you know... While you are falling through the sky at 120 miles per hour, your tandem instructor has their eyes on your landing area the entire time! Although the pilot uses GPS, to put you in the right spot for exiting the aircraft, your instructor still visually verifies the landing area is in reach on every jump to ensure you'll land right where you took off. This is why we pay such close attention to cloud coverage!

In this epic shot Jesse is working up the nerve to put his feet out the open door of the aircraft while his instructor Lee ensures a safe exist and his ability to spot the landing area below!

Morgan had a lot of confidence in Jim... however, she took some convincing for herself... but it only took a matter of seconds 😜 Wait to see a nervous scream turn into a confident head bang! If you can breathe through those first few seconds of fear, the reward on the other side is absolutely worth it!

In case you were wondering, we LOVE when people come dressed to impress! We love getting to know you, and we love the personality these women showed up with, Fashion Designer and Fashionista! Some of our staff even ending up buying some of Shamica's designs!

If you want to know if your outfit is "skydive friendly" just give us a call or send us a message! But generally, if it fits well to your body (nothing to baggy or puffy) and you aren't wearing a shoe with a heal (no cowboy boots or stilettos) you are probably good to go! We have even taken someone in a chicken suit!

Instructor highlight!

This is Noah, one of our full time Tandem Instructors! He has been skydiving for more than 6 years and has completed over 2,500 skydives, and more than 1,000 of those have been with Skydive St Louis! After his first jump Noah knew he wanted to become an instructor one day and share this incredible sport with his friends and other first time jumpers! When Noah is not skydiving he can be found spending time with his 9 year old daughter Scarlett, gardening, or adding to his coin collection. Noah's free spirit and passion for his job shines through when he is working with students and they constantly comment on how much fun they had with him! If you jumped with Noah let us know in the comments!
