Are you tempted to experience the Lansing skydive scene? Have you already booked a tandem skydive? Are you considering giving one heck of a gift to somebody?
If you’re thinking about tandem skydiving, our number one tip is go for it! Here are a few more to ensure you get a great experience out of doing a tandem skydive.
For safety and enjoyment reasons, we don’t skydive in bad weather. Due to this, Skydive Tecumseh operates from April through to between October and December, depending on the weather.
If you are planning to book a tandem skydive, make sure to do so during these months. When you book, be aware that a skydive is not guaranteed on the date of booking, so phone up on the day and check that the conditions are acceptable.
Any time of year, morning weather tends to be more skydiving suitable. Book as early in the day as your travel allows.
If you search for “Skydiving Lansing”, you get a ton of promising looking results. Unfortunately, the few dropzones in the area are not all you see.
Many websites promising skydiving in popular areas are actually third parties and not dropzones.
They will sell you a voucher for a random dropzone and make themselves a tidy profit on top of it.
Booking via these third parties comes with no guarantee of quality. Make sure you book directly with a dropzone.
how to spot a third party seller:
One of the most significant ways in which the local skydiving centers vary is what aircraft they fly. A larger and more powerful aircraft allows a skydiving center to fly to higher altitudes.
A higher exit altitude means a longer freefall and a greater experience, experienced skydivers always favour centers with higher exit altitudes.
Our King Air is a cut above your average skydiving plane and takes you skydiving way above the Lansing area, up to 18,000 ft.
If a skydiving center’s website is not advertising what altitude they fly to, it is probably not much.
A video package is an investment in some truly special pictures for showing your friends and a priceless reminder for you of an amazing day.

Wonderful staff -- my tandem instructor, James, was funny, clear, and made sure that I was comfortable during the entire experience (which involved two flights and a bit of "will-we-or-won't-we" due to clouds).
The dive itself is unreal -- exhilarating and meditative, terrifying and relaxing, absolutely breathtaking. I absolutely recommend you try it here first. Skydive Tecumseh has a great reputation, and there's a reason for that. I hope to go again.
