Skydive Houston is the closest dropzone to the Conroe, The Woodlands, and Houston areas. Our goal is to provide a safe, friendly and welcoming atmosphere for people to experience the thrill of human flight.
We are a proud member of the USPA (United States Parachute Association): The USPA is so important that the FAA delegated it as the oversight organization of the skydive industry. Making your first skydive at SH means that we have more rules to follow than a non USPA member dropzone. As we mentioned before, your safety is our #1 priority.
Be sure to bring your friends and family to come watch you take the leap of a lifetime! We have a Huge Spectator Area so there is always room for everyone – and you never know, someone you bring might decide to join you in the sky! There is plenty for the whole family to watch and see! You’ll have the best view of your friend or family member as they get acquainted with freefall up close and personal! One of the safest aspects is that we’re located on a Private Airport – no worries about any commercial air traffic here!
Here are some of the reasons that make Skydive Houston your best choice:
Why jump here? Because we’re the most friendly and safest in the Houston!
What makes the experience at SKYDIVE HOUSTON so great? There are many reasons, SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY
Our fleet: We have 2 Super Cessna 182 airplanes available for use throughout the entire season.
Our aircraft are capable of reaching 13,500 in 15 minutes. We can take up to 12 students per hour, and our airplanes are meticulously maintained according to the FAA standards.
Our skydiving equipment: We utilized the same tandem parachute system used by the US Special Forces (the Sigma Tandem System). These rigs are very expensive and cannot be afforded by low budget operations. The higher cost of the system is due to the patented safety systems.
The Location: From 13,500 feet you will see the Houston skyline, The Woodlands, and Lake Conroe. We provide a massive open landing area…55 acres! There are plenty of places to relax and watch the skies. Our 3,600 sq/ft hangar has a padded packing area, a classroom with TV, and vending machines.
Our Staff: Our staff are handpicked, experienced instructors, chosen by our Owners/Chief Instructors Marcus Silva (8,000+ skydives and 25+ yrs in the sport) and Jimmy Mendonca (13,000+ skydives, FAA certified parachute rigger and a Tandem Instructor Examiner and Commercial Pilot). In addition, our staff is 100% drug free!
Our Motto: Shut Up and Jump!!
