When West Tennessee Skydiving's B90 King Air fires up its engines, it instantly becomes capable of hauling up to 14 passengers 14,000 feet into the air in seven minutes. Once the plane reaches that altitude, there's only one thing left for its passengers to do: jump.
Located on a private, 110-acre airfield, West Tennessee Skydiving facilitates skydiving experiences about 40 miles east of Memphis. The company's entire setup is designed to serve the needs of skydivers, right down to a to-scale model aircraft so divers can practice exiting the plane and learn how to not accidentally fall up. USPA instructors accompany tandem dives, and an accelerated free fall program gives divers a chance to learn more advanced skydiving skills.
