We Are The Largest and longest running skydiving center in Nevada
— we’ve been in operation since 1993. We operate 7 days a week 365 days a year and even on holidays. We are the original, full-time Las Vegas skydiving center specializing in first-time tandem skydives.
We Offer Complimentary shuttle service from the Las Vegas strip
normally twice a day at 8:00 am and 12:00 noon depending on the season. The pickup and drop-off location is the McDonald’s parking lot directly across the Strip from the Mandalay Bay Hotel. We are only minutes away from the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, so if you drive yourself here you can visit these historic landmarks and Boulder City.
We Use Only The Best of Everything.
We operate a Pacific Aerospace P-750 XSTOL (aka PAC-750XL) skydiving airplane that can carry up to 8 tandem jumpers (16 people) at a time. We jump 25, 2009 Sigma tandem skydiving systems. We drive late model, Chevy Express, passenger shuttle vans equipped with DVD video and GPS navigation systems. We have the largest and nicest skydiving facility in Nevada, complete with a large air-conditioned lobby, restrooms, HD television for viewing, snack and soda machines, and a Starbucks Coffee dispenser. Next door to our hanger is a café offering breakfast, lunch and light snacks.
We are the only drop zone in the country with views of
the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the Colorado River and the beautiful golf courses of Boulder City. You can also see the Las Vegas Strip, Mt. Charleston, Red Rock Canyon, the Valley of Fire and so much more. Unlike other Las Vegas area skydiving centers, our landing area is right next to our facility. Once you land your parachute you can walk right back into our facility and you’re done. This also makes it ideal if you have friends and family coming out to watch you skydive. They can watch your entire experience all the way from gear-up to landing your parachute.
Skydive Las Vegas offers the highest skydive in Nevada.
We take jumpers as high as 15,000′ MSL (mean sea level), which is the highest altitude, allowed without oxygen. Our field elevation at the Boulder City Airport is 2201′ MSL which is the lowest drop zone altitude in Nevada. When we exit the aircraft at 15,000′ MSL, we are actually jumping at 12,799′ AGL (above ground level) which is higher than any skydiving center in Nevada. This gives the student approximately 30-45 seconds of free fall and is over 600′ higher than any other skydive center in Nevada. Remember higher the jump the more free-fall you will experience and the more fun you will have.
The view at Skydive Las Vegas is absolutely incredible. During your jump and parachute ride you will be able to see Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the Colorado River, the Las Vegas Strip, Valley of Fire, Red Rock Canyon and Mt. Charleston. This also makes a great backdrop for your video and pictures. We are so close to the Las Vegas Strip that you will actually be able to see all of the Casinos and pick out the one your staying at.
We will fly you a few miles high in our Pacific Aerospace P-750 XSTOL (aka PAC-750XL). The PAC 750XL is the only airplane in the world built just for skydiving. It can hold up 7-8 tandem jumpers (14-16 people). It has a 750HP engine and is designed to climb really well. With this plane we can easily reach 15,000 feet MSL even on the hottest days in Las Vegas. We actually bring you as high as 15,000 feet MSL unlike some of our competitors. The PAC 750XL is the newest and best skydive airplane available.
Skydive Las Vegas only uses the worlds best parachute equipment. This is the Sigma by United Parachute Technologies. Unlike our competitors all of our equipment is new. This includes Main Parachutes, Reserve Parachutes and Automatic Activation Devices not just the Sigma Container. All of our equipment is less than a year old. We also cycle out our equipment so we continually have brand new equipment for our customers. We will be happy to show you the dates of manufacture.
