Chicagoland Skydiving Center is the original Chicago skydiving school. The company has introduced more than 300,000 people to the sport since 1968. With a 20,000sq ft campus in Rochelle, Illinois, perfect tandem safety record, highest industry standard in customer service, numerous annual events, award-winning aircraft, and a full service restaurant and bar on-site, CSC is the premier skydiving destination in the region.

After four years in business in Kankakee, Illinois, Skydive Greater is about to call a new place home. In March 2017, the father and son team of Brad and Cody Vancina will begin working at Chicagoland Skydiving Center in Rochelle, as skydive operations end at Greater Kankakee Airport.

The Vancina duo started the family business with the aim of providing exceptional customer service while enjoying their shared passion for skydiving. CSC looks forward to welcoming them to the team.
