We're excited to announce that Chicagoland Skydiving Center will be getting a huge addition this spring. After more than 2 years of planning and negotiations with the City of Rochelle, CSC received unanimous City Council approval for the construction of a 4 acre family entertainment venue.

We're almost There...

Chicago winters seem to get harder and harder to endure every year. We're through the worst of it and there's finally some light at the end of the tunnel. Safety Day is coming up on Saturday, March 16th. We hope you can join us for a fun, educational day of presentations and discussions on the most important safety topics in our industry today. Many of us who have been skydiving for a while need this event to review emergency procedures and discuss any new and trending safety issues going on around the skydiving industry. It's also a great chance for new/newer jumpers to continue their education. Lunch will be served. Afterwards, stick around for a great St. Patty's Day party in the Flight Deck Bar & Grill. 

There's a lot going on at CSC...

Despite the time of year, it's busy around the dropzone. It's event season in the Flight Deck and we have private parties, corporate events, and company meetings nearly everyday and Rock Sky Market is always busy. On the CSC side, we're developing a very exciting event schedule for 2019 including plenty of camps, comps, boogies, and parties. Keep a close eye on our events calendar as we're adding events all the time and more details will be posted daily. Our goal is to finalize the event planning soon so everyone can plan their summer travel schedule and have the information on what's going on at CSC. Consider subscribing to the CSC Events Calendar. New events will get added directly to your calendar along with information, links, and any changes and updates that may happen in the future. 

If you're skydiving, you're probably just looking for a quick ride in an airplane. Typically, jumpers are focused on the freefall ahead, but rarely give much thought to the person in the cockpit. At many dropzones, few jumpers even know the pilot's name.

Some say jump pilots are the unsung heroes of skydiving. I'm not sure about that, but we certainly have to manage a lot of variables from the lonely front seat.
