Jumpers who maximize their jumps on the package usually come here with skydiving goals in mind and a path mapped out to achieve them, such as becoming accomplished wingsuiters, freeflyers, or even instructors.

Every Spaceland has tools to help you grow and succeed in skydiving! We have mentor programs with free coaching for skydivers with 100 jumps or less, then we have organizers. We have highly skilled coaches who will be happy to focus on you and keep your learning curve steep. And we regularly hold coach and instructor rating courses by The Ratings Center to help you achieve goals of working with students.

We also are proud to have a highly skilled community of active jumpers here on any given day, and we are located conveniently to a 14-ft iFly wind tunnel in North Dallas (Frisco).
