SKYDIVING TRAINING

Skydive Palatka is a full-service skydiving training center and a USPA Group Member Dropzone located in north Florida.  We offer newcomers and experienced skydivers a place to learn new skills and perfect ones already learned. 

Not sure if skydiving is for you?  We offer tandem jumps every Friday through Sunday for those that are unsure about jumping alone.

Interested in becoming a licensed skydiver?  We offer the first jump course every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.  With our professional and safety-minded USPA-rated AFF instructors and coaches, you can be sure that your training will adhere to the high standards of the USPA student training program.
