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! Even grandma can give it a try! She would not be the first!
Unfortunately, skydiving is a very weather-dependent sport. Sometimes weather can be a factor in whether or not you get to jump. 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.

Remember, if it isn’t on Facebook, it didn’t happen! We do our best to make sure you can take home your experience the same day you come jump! Edited on site and delivered to you via thumb drive.

We’re Passionate about skydiving. From our pilot to our tandem instructors and videographers- we absolutely LOVE what we do! We couldn’t me more excited to introduce you to this amazing sport.
Our Location couldn’t be more convenient. We are located in central Texas and are close to major cities such as Austin, San Antonio, and San Marcos.
Safety is our priority. We have an impeccable safety record when it comes to tandem skydiving! While skydiving by nature is inherently dangerous we take every precaution to minimize the risks involved. We hire experienced and talented instructors. We jump new and well-maintained equipment crafted by the most reputable manufacturers. Our pilot is experienced and our aircraft is well-maintained to all Federal Aviation Administration specifications. We also have industry leaders and specialists conduct training seminars annually for our instructors. We are proud members of the United States Parachute Association and we adhere to all tandem safety standards set by the organization.
Our Staff is incredible. We absolutely LOVE our staff and we know you will too! From the office personnel who help you book your skydive and answer your questions to the Instructor and Videographer who share your first skydive with you. We hire passionate, experienced and enthusiastic people to be part of the Skydive Lonestar team and it makes all the difference in your experience.
Our Community is something special. Skydiving is about more than jumping out of airplanes and more than just a ‘job’. As skydivers, we choose to surround ourselves with people who truly enjoy life and believe in making the most of every single day. From our staff, to fun jumpers, to tandem and AFF students- skydiving tends to draw people who are passionate about life. If you spend enough time at our dropzone you’ll find folks who really enjoy one another’s company and feel bonded by the freedom of flight.
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!
We LOVE fun jumpers. It is our firm belief that fun jumpers are the soul of a dropzone. They make our DZ what it is- the vibe, the family, the feels, the talent, the fun. Making sure our sky family is happy is very important to us. We are always striving to offer more events, organizers, ratings courses, as well as excellent aircraft and facilities to meet all your skydiving needs! We also have the BEST fun jumper rates and discounts in the area (maybe even the world). **Click here for rates**
