WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Arrival time is based on your scheduled class time. We ask that first time skydiving students arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to their scheduled class time. Upon arrival, students will sign in with our manifest staff and begin the check-in process. Check-in takes approximately 10 minutes. Following check-in, students will begin their pre-jump training class.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Skydiving is an half-day process. Following your training class, students will be assigned a jumping order based on their arrival and class time. We strongly encourage all students to make a day out of their skydiving experience. Come out and spend your entire day at the dropzone with us. Between the completion of your training class and the time you actually jump, you can kick back and enjoy watching the skydiving activities.
Jump Omaha Skydiving is a full-service skydiving center catering not only to tandem skydiving students. Licensed jumpers with their own equipment, as well as people learning how to skydive on their own will also be around to observe and chat with.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Anyone jumping needs to bring government-issued photo identification such as a Passport or Driver’s License. You will need this in order to check in with the manifest. Please bring your ID INTO the building to check in! No one will be permitted to jump without a valid photo ID. You will also need to be wearing sneakers to make a skydive!
Following your training class, there will be a waiting period before you actually jump. Bring your own snacks and beverages or have food delivered to the airport! Please note that alcoholic beverages are NOT permitted for students. We also recommend students bring something for entertainment while you wait, especially if you’re jumping with a larger group.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
First and foremost you anyone jumping needs to be wearing sneakers. You will not be able to jump in sandals/open toed shoes, boots, or heels. Wear comfortable clothes for being outside on the day of your jump.
In cooler weather we recommend clothing that layers easily such as cold weather base layers (Under Armor), long-sleeved shirts, and jackets without collars.
In warmer weather, jeans or shorts work well for men. Yoga or track pants or capris work well for women. Due to the fitting on the harness, very short shorts may be uncomfortable. T-shirts are recommended for both men and women. Avoid collared shirts as they are uncomfortable in freefall.
CAN I BRING SPECTATORS?
Yes! Students are welcome to bring spectators to enjoy the experience with you! Please be aware that Jump Omaha Skydiving is located at an active airport. Please remind all spectators to remain within the fenced in viewing area at all times. Paved surfaces are aircraft movement areas and spectators should not be in these areas at any time. Service animals are of course always welcome. Please leave other furry friends at home.
WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?
Skydiving is a weather-dependent sport and there are a variety of conditions we will look at to determine whether or not jumping is possible on a given date. We are not able to jump in high winds or through solid layers of clouds. If we determine that weather does not permit jumping on the date you are scheduled, you will have up to 1 year to reschedule your skydive. Please note that all jumps are nonrefundable.
