Our main skydiving aircraft is a Beechcraft King Air.
This aircraft is simply the best in the industry for Skydiving operations. Super fast and spacious making your ride to altitude an even better experience.
The King Air is the Speed Demon of the skydiving industry. It whisks you to jump altitude faster than any jump ship in the world.
Most dropzones only have a small, 4-seater Cessna. While these are certainly workhorses of the industry, you may not be able to jump with all your friends, and it can make for a slower, less-comfortable ride to altitude.
Safety, speed and comfort are key for your ride to as high as 18,000 ft AGL. Skydive Tecumseh operates a Beechcraft King Air that takes up to 12 jumpers on each load.
The King Air is ideal for skydiving operations. It has excellent safety characteristics, spacious and comfortable interior, and a fast ride to altitude.
Of course, we do also have a Cessna-182 for smaller loads, hop-n-pops, and more. It’s got a huge roll-up door and an ultra-clean interior.
A favorite of our experienced jumpers, the Cessna is not generally used for tandem operations.
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.
