There are only a couple of restrictions for Tandem Skydiving.
That’s it. There is no height limit, age limit or other restriction! Skydiving is an activity for (almost) everyone!
Unfortunately, skydiving is a weather-dependent sport. Weather often determines if we jump or not. Extremely high winds or very low, thick cloud coverage are two of the main factors in determining if it is safe to jump. We apologize for delays and inconvenience this may cause, but we insist on putting the safety of our patrons and instructors first.
We always recommend coming out for your appointment, even if the forecast doesn’t look great. If we cancelled skydiving every time the weather man made a negative prediction, we would never get to jump. Weather can change and clear pretty rapidly. If you don’t come out, you have a 100% chance of not jumping. If you decide not to come to your appointment due to a weather forecast (or any other reason) we require 48 hours notice. Our entire office staff, instructors and pilot plan to show up for your appointment rain or shine. We are prepared to get your waiver filled out, teach your ground school and jump when the weather clears. If you do come to your appointment, our entire staff will wait with you, as long as it takes for the weather to clear or until 1 hour prior to sunset; whichever comes first.
Out of respect for the time of our staff, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible if you do not plan to come to your appointment. A no call, no show or last minute cancellation will result in forfeiting your $50 deposit or a $50 re-booking fee if no deposit was made. We do not issue refunds so please be sure than any rescheduling is done so appropriately.

We’re passionate about skydiving!
It’s more than a sport, it’s family. And we want to introduce you to this exciting form of recreation that can change your life. When you skydive, be it a tandem or solo, you become a member of an elite group of adventure seekers bonded by the freedom of human flight.
We are located in central Texas; close to Austin, San Antonio and San Marcos.
This is our priority. We have an impeccable safety record. We take every precaution to minimize the risks of skydiving. We hire experienced and talented instructors that are current and undergo annual continuing education requirements. We want you to feel safe.
We will take care of you. Our staff are committed to providing you, your family and friends with a world-class skydiving experience.
After a brief training class you will be partnered with an experienced instructor who holds a tandem rating with the United States Parachute Association. Your instructor will be with you every step of the way. Get geared up, board the aircraft with your instructor, follow their simple instructions and let them take care of the rest! Experience free fall and take in Texas from 14,500 ft. up in the air! This experience is truly once in a lifetime. Unless of course, you want to do it again!
Do I have to do a Tandem Skydive? No, you don’t. Most people choose to do a tandem first and it’s a great way to get acclimated. However, it is not actually required. If you’re willing to put in the time and receive the additional training you could make your first jump a solo! This sounds crazy but the USPA offers a very structured program for teaching folks to become skydivers. Your first few jumps would be assisted by 2 “Accelerated Free Fall” or “AFF” Instructors. Although you are wearing your own parachute, these instructors would accompany you in freefall and give in-air instruction and assistance. You can become a licensed skydiver in as few as 25 jumps!
Recreational sport jumpers are the soul of a dropzone. Making our sky family happy is very important to us. Skydive Lone Star offers fun jumpers a welcoming environment filled with events, load organizers, continuing education and ratings courses. We complement the excellent vibe with best-in-class aircraft and facilities to meet all of your skydiving needs!
