Welcome to the largest private airport dedicated to skydiving in the Pacific Northwest! Enjoy fast rides to jump altitude in our meticulously maintained turbine aircraft, take in the views of the cascade mountains, and make new friends in the SDO clubhouse.
Visiting Jumpers must hold a current USPA C or D License with at least 25 in the past 6 months-logged entries with signatures. Conservatively wing loaded canopy (+/-1.5 at the discretion of the S&TA on site. If you exceed that, please email us in advance for guidance).
Please note: Recurrency jumps are limited to graduates of SDO's training program and are available by appointment only.
Bring your Logbook to verify currency and jump numbers (please note, a Pro-Track does not verify your currency).
Be prepared to show your gear, including the in-date, reserve packing card for each rig you plan to jump.
AAD’s are required.
Cameras: We conform to the USPA Advanced Progression Guidelines for camera flyers, including a minimum of 200 jumps and a C License. Camera attach points and set ups are subject to S&TA approval.
Wingsuits: All wingsuit flyers must conform to manufacturer minimum experience required for the suit that they are flying with logged training from a qualified wingsuit instructor. Individual skill assessment or ability will not be considered for exceptions. Seated exits only, until otherwise approved by DZ Management. (Until 25 wingsuit jumps, minimum.) Proximity flying with any open parachutes is forbidden. Wing suit appropriate canopies only.
Hang out with friends and watch the day’s jumps inside our air-conditioned and heated clubhouse. The clubhouse includes free WiFi, access to showers and restroom, a large, shaded packing deck, shaded creeper pad and adjacent private camping area. On busy weekends, indoor packing space and packers may be limited. There is plenty of space outdoors for packing and setting up your own individual shade tent.
Alcohol is prohibited during jump operations. Smoking is allowed in the posted areas only. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
We have a tent-camping and RV area. If you plan to make a weekend of your visit and wish to camp out on the drop zone, please give manifest a call.
When you arrive for your first visit as a licensed skydiver, please check in with manifest in our lobby. You will be asked to fill out a waiver, present your USPA card, photo ID and provide a logbook for verification of jump numbers and currency.
Once you have completed your waiver and gear check, you will receive a dropzone briefing, including an overview of the landing area and tour of the facilities.
Jump operations do vary throughout the year. Springtime weather in the northwest is challenging and can affect the days and hours of operation. Regardless of the forecast, we highly recommend calling to confirm that the DZ is open for jumping.
