Skydive KC


Thank you
New to the KC area. Haven’t jumped since I retired from the military back in April. Looking to get recurrent and get a repack on my reserve.

B license and around 300 jumps.
My dad is 63. A cancer survivor. He almost passed about 8 months ago but he to tough! I was just wondering, if we check with his doctor, if you guys will let him jump or what’s your policy on that?
KOLR10 skydivers! (As in anyone who has jumped out of a plane.) ☺️✈️🪂

It’s been a pretty stressful week for everyone, so today we bring you our EMS team demonstrating how they respond to skydiving incidents at Skydive KC (Butler airport). BCMH Ambulance Supervisor Russ Whisenand, paramedic, coached attendees on safety and what to do prior to EMS arrival.

Thank you to all you guys for helping me get back in the air!!! Only got one jump in but it was an amaaaazing feeling to get current again and everyone was super nice and helpful. 👏🏻 🙏🏻 ✈️
Chris and his freshly painted Cessna 182! Looks like new!
Hello! I am a student working toward certification. When is your next classroom training session?

Tunnel Camp for Formation Skydiving– iFly Kansas City

Do you wish you would get invited on better skydives? Wish you could do a turn without floating up or sliding away from the formation – or worse > sliding over someone else and funneling them. Do you wish you were not the weak link on your FS team?
I am working on setting up another FS Tunnel Camp in Kansas City.

It will be one of these weekends – Please let me know which weekend works best for you. Jan 26-28 , Feb 2-4 or Feb 9-11.

Learn the most efficient and current body position for Formation Skydiving. Proper use of your legs - Center Point Turns - Side Slides - Translating Turns - Moving with Power and Stopping on a dime – Taking and presenting grips aka Grip Management - Targeting - Vertical Transitions (aka burble hops) - Fast and Slow Fall - The Fastest way to get back up when low on a formation - Being strong in free fall and holding your ground – Drills for swooping, stopping and docking in your slot on that large formation

All the necessary skills to become a better skydiver, get asked on better loads and improve your 4 and 8 way skills.

People tell me they learned more in one weekend camp than 3-400 jumps. We just don't spend the time in the air perfecting these skills unless we use a tunnel. And it's imperative to use a coach who knows what to look for and how to give proper corrective feedback.

Buy one hour of time and get 1 1/2 to 2 hours of flying by doing drills with other campers
and sharing each other's time.

Limited slots available. Send a PM or contact me at - [email protected]

Awesomeness is happening - with or without you!
Love u guys.. Thanks. 😁

Happy 25th B-Day SDKC!!

25 years ago Chris & John Hall set out on a vision to build a DZ. On a shoestring budget, 1 Cessna 182, 3- Parachutes and little to no facilities we pushed through and here we are.. Thank you to all our hardworking staff and customers over the years for helping us make our dream come true!!

Attached are some of the first day pics of us bringing the DZ to life along with the first load flown at the new DZ.

Here’s to many more,
Chris & John Hall


We flew the Redbull Air Force into a jump in the heart of Downtown KC this evening.
