We each make critical choices over the course of a lifetime and once you’ve made the decision to jump from an airplane, your choice of drop zones becomes one of them. As someone new to the sport, or an experienced skydiver new to the area, the careful choice of where to jump should be based on a set of factors. Skydive Allegan’s drop zone is built on the foundations of safety, experience, professionalism, and inclusiveness. Providing the safest, most memorable customer experience includes extensive pilot training, instructor currency and licensing as well as meticulous aircraft and skydive equipment maintenance.
Padgham Field has been our home for over ten years and we are proud to be part of the Allegan community. Our staff members, pilots, and instructors are carefully chosen for their experience and love of the sport of skydiving. Skydive Allegan are active participants in USPA Safety Day, conduct standardized tandem instructor refresher courses and are under the watchful eye of a USPA Safety and Training Advisor. Their parachute packers are supervised by FAA Senior Riggers after undergoing extensive one-on-one training. Skydive Allegan is a United States Parachute Association which governs the sport of skydiving, ensuring member drop zones are held to high safety and training standards.
Inclusiveness and the ‘vibe’ at a drop zone will make your skydive experience life-changing. At Skydive Allegan you will see wingsuit jumpers, experienced skydivers building formations in freefall, canopy formation jumps and high-performance canopy landings. They have a robust student program with one-on-one coaching, teaching solo students to jump on their own. The Skydive Allegan staff takes great pride in welcoming tandem students of all ages and experiences. Students have included those over 90 years old, mobility impaired skydivers and people from all over the world.
Skydive Allegan is the home drop zone of the Skydive Broncos, a student organization at Western Michigan University. The Skydive Broncos compete at the USPA National Collegiate Parachuting Championships.
Skydive Allegan constantly strives to offer you the best skydiving experience possible at a well established, professional, organized, well maintained and insanely fun drop zone. We encourage you to visit us and see why all of these things, working together, make such a big difference.
