Skydiving is a weather sensitive sport. Our ground control team at both locations will begin assessing the weather when operations begin for that day. The weather will be constantly monitored throughout the day. Please plan to spend a number of hours for your experience. If the conditions are not suitable, your experience may take a little longer. While at the dropzone, please pay attention to the announcements over the PA from manifest, as well as announcements on the monitors placed on the wall. If poor weather conditions affect skydiving, our manifest team will announce an operational stand-by. If we go on stand-by, this means that we have to put a hold to our skydiving operations. We will keep you updated every 30 minutes whether we will restart operations or whether we will stay on stand-by or cancel for the day. If you are unable to skydive due to bad weather conditions, your deposit is refundable. You can also ask at manifest to move your reservation to a later date if there is space available in our schedule. Please be aware that while every effort is made to communicate operational changes, the Palm or Desert Campus dropzones could close without prior warning due to poor weather conditions, for special events or competitions.
