COVID-19 Information

As a public health precaution due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), Skydive Windy City Chicago (scheduled to open on April 3rd for the 2020 season) will voluntarily remain closed.

The health and safety of our guests and team members is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus status and maintain communication with local health officials and the Centers for Disease Control. Due to the rapidly changing nature of this virus we don’t have a solid date to begin operations because during the process of skydiving, social distancing is not possible. Our major concern is the ride to altitude when up to 15 people are confined to the relatively-small space of an airplane cabin. We worry that even with current known precautions, it is too confined a space to offer guests and team members reasonable protection.

As of 5/6/2020 we are still closed due to COVID-19. If a treatment becomes available, we will begin operations immediately, but barring that sort of solution we’ll need more time to see what works and what doesn’t. We hope to be operating by June 1st, and think that date is probably the earliest possible. Our schedule is still open for reservations but if we cannot jump due to weather or COVID, or participants cancel for any reason (via email) with more than 24hrs notice, we can reschedule them for a new date (deposits will move to new date), or they can elect to receive a full refund of their deposit.

Learn to Skydive

Check out our Solo Training Program! If you enjoyed your tandem as much as most, you may wish to take it a step further. Our Solo Training Program (STP) is a comprehensive program of instruction that helps you earn your United States Parachute Association (USPA) “A” skydiving license.

Video & Pictures

You can add pictures, video or both to your experience for very reasonable prices. The pictures and/or video are delivered to you in raw format via internet link, usually before you leave (usually within 30 minutes of landing). You may have us edit your video and/or receive it on USB for a small extra charge.

Licensed Skydivers

We welcome licensed skydivers. With our PAC-750XL 14-passenger jumpship, there are almost always slots available for licensed skydivers and STP (Solo Training Program) students. See the Chicago Skyline and three states on the Lake Michigan shoreline during your skydives.
