PARACHUTE CENTER - Northern California's Premiere Skydiving Facility

The Parachute Center is one of the largest and oldest drop zones in the United States, serving the sport since 1964. We welcome skydivers of all skill levels at the drop zone. The Parachute Center offers airlift services for skydivers, and has various aircraft available to serve its customers, including a Beech 99, a King Air 200, and two Super Otters. Experienced skydivers can jump at 13,000 feet for $15. The Parachute Center also has gear available to rent for $35.

Independent business operators whose business is to serve the skydiving community, will often bring their businesses to and operate their business at the Parachute Center, offering their services to new and experienced skydivers. While the services offered by independent business operators vary, they may include tandem skydiving Instruction, certification instruction, and instruction relative to the various disciplines within the sport of skydiving. Other independent business operators offer videography, photography and parachute packing services at the Parachute Center.
The price of each skydiving experience and skydiving related service will vary depending on the services purchased and the independent business operator providing the services. In general, independent business operators typically charge $100 for a tandem skydive, however the body weight of a skydiver is a consideration that may affect the negotiated price. In general, tandem skydiving may be available to skydivers with a body weight of up to 300 lbs. In general, independent business operators typically charge $50 to $75 for videography and photography packages, depending upon the package selected and price negotiated. Skydivers are to negotiate rates for services directly with the independent business operators of their choice.
All skydivers must be 18 years of age to skydive, however skydivers that are 16 or 17 years old may skydive with a parent or legal guardian present. We suggest that skydivers wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes and tennis shoes.
The Parachute Center is open EVERY DAY, starting at 9:00 a.m. and we jump as the weather permits. We ask that you arrive no later than 3:00 p.m., although we do jump later.
We accept Master Card, Visa ATM (1$ charge) and cash.
