College Skydiving

The Ultimate Outdoor Adventure

College Groups

Since 1964, Skydive Tecumseh has been Michigan’s premier dropzone and the destination for college and university groups from all over the state and beyond. We have hosted Outdoor Adventure programs, fraternities, sororities, club socials, and collegiate fundraising events. We have garnered this trust because of our world-class, purpose-built facilities, professionalism, and passion for what we do!

Focused on Professionalism & Safety

Skydive Tecumseh is unlike most skydiving centers in the United States. Our operation was built exclusively for group skydiving – we are not an old hangar with old planes and tired equipment. Our state of the art facility is a major training center offering turbine aircraft ideal for accommodating large groups in clean and modern facilities. Our staff is comprised of instructors passionate about the sport, and we maintain a safety-focused culture. Our equipment is well-maintained and from the leading manufacturer in the industry. We take our fun, seriously!

No other dropzone in Michigan can rival our facilities and ability to host groups!

How To Book Your College Group

 

Booking your college group is simple! Once the first reservation is scheduled, a unique Group Booking ID will be created allowing others to add themselves to the group independently. Additionally, Group Leaders have the ability to reserve everyone at the same time. Group discounts will be applied at check-in based on the group size. 

Group leaders: If you’re a group leader, feel free to download this pamphlet to share with your group.

How Safe is Skydiving?

Skydiving isn’t without risk. Our attorney would want you to know that you can die doing this activity. However, the risk quotient for tandem skydiving, when compared to other outdoor activities like whitewater rafting or rock climbing, is deemed “acceptable” by the thousands of people who skydive with us every year! Naturally, what is “acceptable?” In 2023, there were 10 skydiving fatalities out of approximately 3.65 million jumps made by USPA Members. This equates to .27 deaths per 100,000 jumps. The fatality rate for tandem skydives is even less. For a full detail on the safety of skydiving, visit the United States Parachute Association’s report on skydiving safety.

Tandem Skydiver in freefall at Skydive Tecumseh

Great experience!! This was my third time doing a tandem jump but first time with Skydive Tecumseh. Being able to jump from 18,000 feet was awesome! Plane ride up is quick and comfortable. Instructors were friendly and professional. If you're thinking about...just do it!!
