We are family!
I would rather refer to our staff as our Family. We may not all be related by blood but we are Family in every other sense.
Our business is owned and operated by a father and son team who have been skydiving together since 2000 and the remainder of the staff is made up of family members that help keep it all together.
Why choose us?
All of the staff at Skydive Central North Carolina work a normal Monday – Friday job we skydive because we love it. We want to share the love of our sport with anyone willing to come join us in a once in a lifetime experience. So when choosing a skydiving location come somewhere that will make you feel at home and like part of their Family.
