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.
This was a great experience! The staff were friendly, the TI (Amber) was informative and made it fun. I felt very safe and in the care of a qualified and capable TI. Skydive Tecumseh has been around for over 50 years and I can see why. This is a fantastic place to check off one's bucket list, have fun with friends, and do something exhilarating. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to have a chance of a lifetime.
