New Jersey Skydiving - Everything You Need To Know

New Jersey Skydiving - Everything You Need To Know

Published: May 13, 2020

If you live in New Jersey and are Googling for a skydiving adventure, chances are you're not 100% sure of where to jump as you've got a few options. We're here to share everything you need to know about skydiving in NJ.

While we'd love for you to join us for a tandem skydive, what's most important to us is you find the very best information in order to make the best decision of where to make your jump. The first thing to know is no two skydiving operations are the same. Not unlike the restaurant industry, everyone makes food, but some dining experiences are better than others. There aren't any guides that spell out which is the best place to jump, but similar to restaurants, you should read everyone's Google Reviews. These can be telling and will help you quickly rule out where not to go!

NJ Skydiving - How To Shop For The Best Place to Jump

Don't make your decision on where to jump based on proximity and price. Googling 'skydiving near me' should not be the beginning and end of your research! There is risk involved in skydiving and you'll want to drive out of your way to jump at a place where safety is a priority within its culture. Also, watch out for operations that have significantly lower prices than others in the market. Finding the best skydiving deal in New Jersey shouldn't be the priority as running a skydiving operation isn't cheap (trust us on that detail!) Maintaining aircraft and skydiving equipment is expensive. If you were searching for a cardiologist, it's likely you wouldn't be searching for the cheapest one!

Also, make sure that the skydiving operation you select is a member of the United States Parachute Association. USPA Group Member dropzones are inclined to follow the organization's Basic Safety Recommendations. You can view all USPA-rated dropzones here.

Other Factors To Consider

If you're wishing to have the best possible skydiving experience, there are other factors to consider. Safety and service is your top priority, but consider what you'll be seeing during your skydive. The views during free fall enhance your experience. Depending on where you choose to skydive in NJ will vary from wide-open fields to ocean views (that's a plug for us!) Also, be sure to brush up on everything you'll need to prepare for your skydiving experience!
