Skydive Utah is one of the safest and greatest places to learn to skydive due to our program, gear, and geography.
Our AFF program is constantly evolving to ensure we are using the most up to date methods to teach our students. Lindsay Rich has been our AFF Director since 2016, and has been teaching AFF for 8 years. Over these years, she has worked with many different instructors in a variety of AFF programs. Utilizing her diverse experience, Lindsay has helped develop several AFF programs around the country. Her goal at Skydive Utah is to further develop and monitor a student program that is continuously improving, and provides the best balance of safety, learning and fun.
We maintain the highest quality student gear available. Our gear is kept in top condition, and constantly cycled for new to keep our fleet fresh. You don't have to deal with old gear that will hinder your learning, and leave you stressed. New for 2017, we now use accurate digital altimeters, while most dropzones use outdated and sloppy analog options. Skydiving is stressful enough, you shouldn't have to worry about the quality of your gear.
Our airport is one of the safest places to skydive in the world. We have enormous landing areas, which are further surrounded by open farm fields. This means you don't have to worry about many dangerous buildings, roads, and obstacles. In addition, the Great Salt Lake provides a "sea breeze", which means consistent winds from the north almost every day. It is very easy to maintain directional awareness in the sky because we have the lake to the north, and tall mountains lining the east and west of the valley. You really couldn't ask for much more when learning to skydive!
