Aircraft & Landing Area

The PAC 750 XL

The PAC 750 XL can carry up to 16 jumpers to altitude in under 15 minutes and is the newest member of the Piedmont Fleet, purchased at the beginning of the 2020 season. As we’ve grown into a bigger and better skydiving facility over the years of serving Charlotte, North Carolina, and surrounding areas, we’ve found the need to improve our fleet, and this aircraft does just that!

Minimums: 5 fun jumpers | 2 tandems/aff | 1 tandem/aff, 2 fun jumpers

The Cessna 182

The Cessna is our old faithful! A small but mighty aircraft, this plane continues to be a favorite for both experienced and tandem jumpers.

Minimums: 4 fun jumpers | 1 tandem
