The licensed instructors at Skydive Hobbs accompany clients on jumps into a USPA-sanctioned drop zone. The business utilizes the services of a Cessna P206 Turbo aircraft, which, much like a paper airplane shot out of a cannon, is capable of reaching an altitude of 10,000 feet in just 15 minutes. From there, the Skydive Hobbs team carries out tandem jumps, and oversees jumps of individuals working toward getting licenses of their own.
Although the views of the Sacramento Mountains are imposing and majestic at ground level, nothing can compete with approaching them from 10,000 feet above. That’s why the staff at Skydive White Sands offers a range of jumps and classes that let guests get a bird’s-eye view of the mountain peaks, smooth white sands, and roller-skating clouds while feeling the rush of an adrenaline-pumping free fall. Staff members send jumpers into the air in a Cessna 206, then strap themselves to students for a tandem jump or teach them how to man their own parachute during the seven-level skydiving-licensing program. While in flight, clients can choose to record their experience with a handheld camera that documents their free fall and peaceful descent to the ground.
