Explore the Dropzone
You’re here, whether you realize now or after your jump, on a transformative experience. You might be fulfilling a lifelong dream, challenging yourself to face a fear, looking for a new passion, trying to get a little spark back in your life or celebrating a big milestone in a new, exciting way. Regardless, you’re going to come out the other side a happier, more confident and adventurous person.
At Calgary Skydive, we are checking off bucket lists and making dreams come true everyday. Sharing that process with you provides us with a genuinely deep level of happiness and a little taste of that first jump feeling again. We consider your time with us to be a privilege. If you ask what Calgary Skydive is all about and what truly makes it different from other skydive centers around the world, that’s it. We feel extremely privileged to be part of your first jump, first solo or earning your license experience, and we reciprocate that energy back to you.
We support a “good vibes only” business model. It starts with the people. They’re a group of office escapees, sun chasers, and dream seekers. We find the most fun, positive, skydiving obsessed, rockstars to work with us. They’re an extremely diverse group from all over the world with interesting backgrounds, fabulous stories and all have a different approach to teaching and instructing. You could do five tandems with five of our instructors and you’re experience would vary each time.
At the beginning of 2018, Calgary Skydive was acquired by Edmonton Skydive. Calgary Skydive now falls under the same ownership and management group that transformed a small, relatively unknown skydive center into one of the largest, most dynamic in the country that produces some of the best jumpers. Our goal is to continue a similar development and expansion at our Calgary location, and collectively, build the largest skydive, most progressive skydive organization in the country.
The Calgary Skydive dropzone is already far more developed than Edmonton Skydive was prior to its transformation to a national leader. Our skydive center has been operating as the largest British military parachuting school outside of the United Kingdom for more 15 years. During that time, significant facilities and training tools have been built and stringent training standards have been implemented. Beginning in 2018, we’ll continue to add to our amazing facilities and integrate extra perks, our standards of customer service and big events.
Premium Adventure Outing
In a world where the all of the Disneyland’s are for kids, we’ve created the ultimate adult extreme recreational resort, the “Queenstown of Alberta”. A place designed only for people to experience awe. There’s only a handful of skydive centers in the world as well developed as ours.
Calgary Skydive has invested millions of dollars over the past few years in facility expansions and upgrades to improve your skydive experience. We sport extremely modern and comfortable facilities, including spacious hangars, restaurant and bar, overnight accommodations, large landing and viewing area and entertainment areas. We fly extremely fast twin engine aircraft for additional safety (two is always better than one) and to get you to where you want to be quickly.
Come early on the day of your jump for a bite to eat, or your cheering squad can have a drink in the bar while you get your paperwork and training completed. We have a great viewing area and encourage you to bring your cheering section to share your skydive adventure!
We think of a skydive experience as a first trip to Disneyland for kids; our goal is to deliver the adult equivalent of awe and fun, with a big hit of adrenaline (see adults to get to have more fun). After all, if it’s not comfortable, it’s not premium.
But we know the experience starts even before you arrive at Calgary Skydive. We’ve developed an extensive amount of resources to help you overcome potential nervousness or anxiety, to properly educate you on expectations of the experience (as much as possible with words) and generally prepare you to smash your fears and blow your mind.
Skydiving in Calgary is an easy half day adventure. Located at the Bieseker Airport, we are a quick 50 minute drive from downtown, the closest to the city.
We are located on the edge of the Badlands, home to the world’s richest dinosaur fossil site and the Rocky Mountains on the western horizon. On clear days, you can enjoy views of the Badlands and the mountains. We are easily accessible from Airdrie (35 min), Red Deer (1 hour 30 min) and Banff (2 hours).

We Don’t Discount Safety
We’ve implemented the same protocols, procedures and culture that we’ve utilized at, our sister dropzone, Edmonton Skydive. It holds one of the best student safety records in the country for almost 35 years.
When you jump with us you can expect safety without compromise. That might mean you are disappointed because you’re not able to jump due to changing weather or precautions with air traffic. We will get you in the air when it is safe but we will not bend outside of safe jumping conditions. .
