How We Do Skydiving Differently

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

When there are multiple options for dropzones to make your first jump with, it can be difficult to tell them apart. Likewise, it can be hard to know if you’re picking the right one. 

Here are the facts: all skydiving centers are not created equal. Some prioritize profits over people, pumping customers through the pipeline. Others take a more hands-on approach — keeping the customer in mind at each and every touchpoint — enhancing an already amazing experience. We take pride in having an atmosphere much more attuned to the latter. 

Our customers notice how we set ourselves apart, and our five-star reviews attest to that fact. However, for us, it is not enough to just be satisfied with that: no, it is supremely important to us to continue to amaze the customers we have with an experience unlike any other each and every day. This is how we do skydiving differently. 


Conveniently located at the Pine Hill Airport in Albion, New York. We are a short jaunt away from Buffalo and Rochester, NY, and the Finger Lakes region. Because of this prime location, we can offer our customers incredible natural skydiving views of Lake Ontario, the Erie Canal, and even the impressive mists of Niagara Falls.

Customer-Centered Operation

To us here at WNY Skydiving, the small stuff matters. From full-service facilities to friendly and knowledgeable staff, we want our customers to see how much we value them. Paying attention to detail and the ways it can improve the customer’s overall experience is another means by which we set ourselves apart.

Endless Educational Opportunities

At WNY Skydiving, we believe in facilitating growth. We offer a variety of ways for students and licensed skydivers to improve their skills. With a tandem training progression program, our Accelerated Freefall course, canopy courses, instructor courses, parachute rigger courses, and even a wingsuiting school, there’s something for everyone.

Qualified Staff & State-of-the-Art Gear

Skydiving is an extreme sport. However, we strive to mitigate risk in all the ways that we can. At WNY Skydiving, this is done by ensuring that every jump staff member we employ carries the appropriate rating and is fully vetted. We adhere to the rules and regulations established by the USPA and ensure that our gear is routinely inspected by FAA-certified riggers.

Building Community with Skydiving | WNY Skydiving


Meticulously maintained, powerful aircraft are an essential piece of the puzzle. At WNY Skydiving, we are proud of our fleet. We have two wide-body Cessna 182s and also offer weekend skydives from 14,000 feet using an aircraft called a Caravan.

We’re One Big Family!

At WNY Skydiving, you are not just another jumper, you are family. Whether it’s your first jump or your 50th, we strive to make every jumper feel like they belong.
