Get the Most Out of Your Unlimited Package!
Jumpers who maximize their jumps on the package usually come here with skydiving goals in mind and a path mapped out to achieve them. For example, Henry Guyver arrived in Houston for the package in 2018 with the goal of becoming an accomplished wingsuiter. Fast forward one year and 1295 jumps later, and he hit that goal way early! Others come here with dreams of becoming accomplished 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 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 iFly Dallas in Frisco.
Let’s see what you can do with YOUR unlimited jump year!
