Skydive Alabama is currently the only dropzone located in North Alabama. We are conveniently located just 40 minutes south of Huntsville and just 30 minutes north of Birmingham , making us the closest skydiving facility to these cities. You cannot find a dropzone closer to these cities that provide a minimum of a 13,500 feet skydive. Watch out though, some dropzones promise altitudes in excess of 13,500 feet, but they don't deliver. Our experienced instructors will teach you how to skydive safely. Skydive Alabama is a group member of the United States Parachute Association, which means that we agree, in the interest of safety and good communications, to abide by the safety standards they set. This also means that all of our instructional staff are certified by the USPA.Skydive Alabama provides students with the latest equipment, including square main and square reserve parachutes. The reserves are equipped with the best automatic openers on the market, "Cypres". Freefall video and photography services are available so our students can share the thrill of skydiving with their friends and family. If you are a one-time jumper or an experienced skydiver (or planning to become one), the friendly and helpful staff is committed to giving you a great skydiving experience.
