Are reservations and deposits required? 

Reservations can be made directly from our website, click on "Make your Reservation" and it will open an online calendar.  Follow the promps.  For groups of 6 or more you have the option of making a NON REFUNDABLE  deposit to hold the time slot for your group.  Each person is discounted $10 from the regular rate of $195.  The balance will be due on your arrival. Reservations are not required but if you just show up we will do our best to work you in but circumstances may make for a long wait or no jump at all.


Do you accept credit cards/checks?

Yes! We accept MasterCard and Visa (5% surcharge) and your personal check.

How do I get there?

Skydive Skyranch is located at Cecil Smith Field (Siloam Springs Municipal Airport) at the junction of Highway 59 N and 412.  The entrance to the airport is 1/4 mile north on 59 in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.


Are there any age requirements to jump?

Yes, you need to be of legal age in Arkansas, which is 18 years of age.  Unfortunately, that also means even with the consent of a parent, if you are underage, you will not be able to jump.

What should I wear?

Wear a good pair of tennis shoes and casual clothing appropriate for the temperature. If the weather is cool, we suggest that you bring a sweatshirt to wear.  We recommend that you leave your jewelry at home.  Not only is there a risk that jewelry may be lost during your skydive, but rings, necklaces, and bracelets can become snagged on the aircraft during exit, leading to injury.  We supply all the equipment needed to make your jump.

How long will my training and jump take?

The amount of time required for your training and first jump depends on the training method you have selected.  If you are doing a tandem jump, plan to spend three to four hours.  If you are part of a large group of tandems plan on about an hour per person.  If you are doing the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) or Static Line Deployment (solo) method, we suggest that you plan to spend the day at the drop zone.  We believe you will find that clearing your schedule of other obligations will allow you to focus on your first jump without unneeded worries or distractions.  If you will be unable to be at the drop zone all day, please let your instructor or jump master know your time constraints as early as possible.

Do you offer group rates?

Yes! For groups of 10 or more we give a $10 per person discount.  Your group can jump a combination of Tandem and/or Solo.

Why do you charge more for heavy tandem passengers?

Tandem instructors set their own weight limits. If you look at other drop zones, you will find maximum weight limits for tandem passengers at most ranging form 200 up to 225lbs.  We use the most advanced tandem equipment available, which allows us to take the heavier passengers.  It is more physically demanding on the instructor and equipment to take passengers in excess of 240lb, and weather conditions must be considered.  Any upcharge paid for a tandem skydive goes directly to the Instructor who jumps with you and the upcharges (if any) are his decision.  Talk to your instructor.

Isn't landing like jumping of a two-story building?

No!  If that were the case, there would be no skydiving because everyone would have broken legs!  In the early days of sport parachuting, landings were sometimes quite hard.  The new ram-air parachutes of today allow landings that feel equivalent to jumping off of a picnic table.

Will I be scared?
Maybe, and maybe not, but some fear is to be expected.  You will definitely feel a surge of excitement and anticipation before the jump - this is a normal part of the experience.  During the jump itself, you will feel a lot of wind, and the wind blowing by is quite noisy.
