Below is a list of commonly asked questions about Chicago area skydiving and the city's best skydiving center. Skydive Windy City is Chicago's closest skydive. We offer consistently fast service (almost twice as fast as our competitors), a top safety record for the area, and unmatched views of three states on the Lake Michigan shoreline (Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan) and the beautiful Chicago skyline. On some days we can even see Milwaukee from the air! No other skydiving center can offer you these views or our proximity to the city.

Our weight limit for tandem passengers is 250lbs (113kg) and the limit is based upon the maximum weight capacity of the equipment. All participants, regardless of weight, must met the specifications of our maximum weight for height chart. Tandem students weighing between 210 and 250lbs will be charged an extra $40. All tandem students are weighed at check-in wearing the clothes they will wear on the jump. The extra charge is because of increased wear on the parachute equipment and the extra workload for the instructors. If you exceed the maximum weight for your height according to our chart, you should email us your height, weight, and a photo from your shoulders to your knees to help us determine whether we can make the jump safely with you and stay within the performance limits of the equipment.
We can also skydive with mobility-challenged and wheelchair-bound individuals (physically handicapped or elderly), contact us for details.
