We at Westside Skydivers are constantly evolving to better suit the needs of our customers. For the 2012 season, you can expect to see some great new things, that we feel will increase efficiency and customer service! We are proud to say that we are the ONLY skydiving center in the country to offer our awesome customers a choice in altitude: jump from 13k, 18k, or 24k! The reason is simple - we kept hearing over & over again - "I wish freefall lasted longer." Well now it can!
Our aircraft is a Cessna Grand Caravan - with a competition size door, carrying 17 jumpers to altitude!
We do get many questions on the high altitude jumps, most commonly, "Can I do it my first time?" The answer is YES! You will be with one of our USPA professional instructors who take the utmost care to ensure your safety. Our airplane has onboard oxygen which you breathe on the way up to saturate your system! So all you first timers - come on and get higher with a jump from 18k, or join the ranks of the elite military and go where few others have gone before - jump from 24 THOUSAND FEET!
Don't worry - you still get to deploy the parachute & wear an altimeter on every skydive with Westside. Each jump you make will count toward certification - even tandems!
Some other changes, this year you will notice you may book your tandem or buy gift certificates online (If you have purchased a Groupon you must call to schedule). One other really cool feature this year is our online store - regret not buying that t-shirt? Now you can buy it anytime!!
Westside Skydivers is outgrowing our home here, so this fall we will begin construction on a new 80x100 hangar. We are pleased to announce that construction has finished on the new AD (arrival and departure) building here at the airport. And we're nearing completion of the clubhouse which can be rented to large groups.
Also this fall will be the arrival of our new SUPERVAN 900 - outperforming ANY other skydiving airplane on the market today - we'll get you there faster & safer! Check out the following link to get a sneak peak: http://www.texasturbines.com/ttcaravan/TTcgallery_action.htm
Westside Skydivers will be the first to franchise in the United States. We have had the lucky opportunity of franchising to the Houston market - look for that skydiving center to be open at the end of this year.
Thanks to all our wonderful family, friends, staff - and most importantly our loyal CUSTOMERS for making this journey happen! Things are about to take off!
