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 drove more than 2 hours to jump with Tecumseh because I wanted a reputable company and I was not disappointed. They were very safety minded and professional. The staff was very friendly and made the whole experience fun! If you're only doing it once, pay the extra and get the video package. Very well done, you won't be disappointed.
