Blackhawk Aircraft

Here at Black Knights Skydiving Centre, we are home to Blackhawk, our Cessna Caravan aircraft. Our aircraft allows us to climb to altitude in record time, with climb rates between 1500ft and 2300ft per minute. As one of the leading skydiving aircrafts, it is highly reliable and stable.

Blackhawk has two rows of benches installed which 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 at once for formation events.

We can get you up in the air in no time.
