At Vegas Extreme Skydiving, we understand such apprehension and make every endeavor to ease your mind and explain the skydiving process to you in order to ensure your safety and enjoyment. We believe in the philosophy that knowledge dispels fear, and as such encourage your mind to be enquiring. To this end, we urge you to read the following facts and make the decision with whom to entrust your life and the life of your loved one with.

We are the ONLY drop zone in Las Vegas:
