A cockpit experience you will not forget

It's ALMOST as fun as jumping!

Aircraft observer flight - $59.99

What are skydiving pilots doing up there? A truly unique aviation experience - a skydiving flight without leaving the airplane.

Great for friends and family members who aren’t ready to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, but want to be part of the action. At Chicagoland Skydiving Center, spectators can kick it up a notch with a first-jump introductory flight. On an airplane ride at CSC, you will have the opportunity to sit in the cockpit, put on the headset and be a part of the aviation experience as we climb to 14,000 feet MSL to drop jumpers. You’ll be just feet away from your friend or family member jumping out the door of a perfectly good airplane!

Sky Team Aviation logoYou will be escorted to the aircraft, climb into the cockpit, and receive a briefing from the pilot. A headset will be provided so you can listen to air traffic control and talk with the pilot. We love explaining how we fly jumpers and answering your questions about the airplane, skydiving or anything else you want to know about a pilot. Plus, watch your friend jump! There simply is no better way to share this experience with someone than to be there!

Airplane rides are available as gift certificates or can be requested upon arrival. Limited space available per flight. Must be 18 years or older and you will be required to sign a waiver.
