Skydive Tecumseh proudly flies a Beechcraft King Air… one of the fastest jump ships in the skydiving industry.
If there is one thing that skydivers hate the most, it’s a slow ride to altitude. The King Air is the rocket ship of the skydiving industry and a love for those that want to get to altitude fast.
Aside from its speed, the King Air is a multi-engine, turbine aircraft. That’s fancy aviation speak for saying it has two engines! Having two engines adds a level of safety or ‘insurance’ in the unlikely event of an engine out.
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.
