Our Cessna Caravan Aeroplane

We are home to the amazing Blackhawk, our Cessna Caravan aircraft. This allows us to climb to altitude in record time, with climb rates between 1500ft and 2300ft per minute. Our aircraft is world renowned as one of the leading skydiving aircrafts. It is highly reliable and stable in the air and on the ground.

Unlike many other similar aircrafts, ours have two rows of benches installed. This allows passengers a more comfortable ride to the sky. The large cargo door and wind deflector makes exiting the aircraft easier. Furthermore, it allows more jumpers to exit simultaneously for formation events.
