And that’s it.
Now, here comes the really cool part.
When you complete a reservation, on the last page you see and in your confirmation email, you are given a Group ID Number.
This group number can be shared with your friends easily through a facebook post, or you can text it to them the old-fashioned way. By entering this number, your friends can sign up for a skydive online and be automatically added to your group; there’s no need for each member to call in!

Making Michigan skydiving reservations was the first step, up next is all the rest!
At Skydive Tecumseh we welcome guests of nearly all ages to make skydiving reservations. While there is no age maximum (that’s right Granny, you are welcome to come!), there is an age minimum.
Because Skydive Tecumseh is a group member of the United States Parachute Association, we must follow their rules and regulations they have in place: to skydive with us, you must be 18 years of age or older.
When it comes to weight, for the safety of the individual and the safety of our instructors, our guests cannot weigh more than 230lbs. This isn’t a rule we made up, but rather, it is a restriction put in place by the equipment manufacturers. Despite our desire to get everyone in the air, safety is our main priority.
It is recommended that potential skydivers be in fairly good health and possess average strength and flexibility for their age. A good rule of thumb for determining whether you possess the strength to skydive and land safely is to sit at the edge of a straight-backed chair, extend your legs out in front of you, and lift.
Are you able to lift your legs and keep them elevated? If so, and you meet the other requirements, you should be able to skydive.
If you cannot, all hope of turning your skydiving dream into a reality is not lost. At times, we are able to accommodate customers with physical limitations, but this decision is made on a case by case basis. If your heart is set on skydiving but you have physical limitations, please give us a call.
We may need to set up an appointment to meet you and evaluate whether the particular physical limitation would compromise your safety or the safety of our instructor.
Alright, so, you meet the basic skydiving requirements, but still have some questions about your skydiving reservations? Questions like…
Not a fashionista? No worries. Skydiving attire is pretty simple really: we suggest that you wear comfortable clothing that suits the weather. If it is warm, shorts, leggings, or capris will do. When the temperature begins to dip, consider wearing a few form fitting layers.
Regardless of the weather, It is important to avoid clothing that is too loose fitting or baggy. You also want to avoid clothing that will “flap” around (i.e. collared shirts or clothing with hoods).
Keep it simple with the foot wear and wear athletic shoes that fit snuggly or lace.
Open-toed shoes, sandals and boots with hooks are a no-go.
Keep jewelry to a minimum, and do not wear anything you would be worried about losing!
We are a thorough group of people here at Skydive Tecumseh. We like to dot every “i” and cross every “t”, and sometimes, because of our dedication to safety and penchant for perfection, getting you in the air for your skydiving reservation takes time.
Treat your Michigan skydiving reservations, like a full-day activity.
Jumps are made in order of earliest appointment forward, and so, inclement weather in the morning may push all skydives back a bit.
We’d rather you not fret about running late for another engagement, so you are better set up for success when you schedule for a day when you do not have time constraints.
If you still have questions or feel like you are missing something, visit our Skydiving FAQ’s page or please give us a call. And don’t forget to test it out for yourself just how easy it is to make your Michigan skydiving reservations online!
It was my first time skydiving and I was so impressed by the staff at Skydive Tecumseh! Everyone was friendly and professional making you feel comfortable from the minute you arrive. The experience was unexplainably awesome! The free fall was such a rush, the parachute release was much less of a jolt than I anticipated, the landing was super smooth and Ken Beach is the bomb! I will be back for my second jump soon.
