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.
I've been here 2 times now and both times have been the experience of a lifetime! I plan on going again next summer as well. When people ask "why jump out of a perfectly good airplane" I reply with "because it's a perfectly good plane to jump out of!!" The people here are amazing and every time someone is looking for a good place, skydive Tecumseh is the only place that I recommend. I also like the fact you can donate the little bears too!!
