$119 for a Skydiving Class and Solo Static-Line Jump ($205 Value)
During the static-line class, visitors learn about static-line and parachuting equipment before partaking in training using a suspended harness and aircraft mockup. Once training is completed, students ascend to 3,000 feet in a real plane and then exit while attached to a static line under the watchful eye of the jump master. The static line causes the chute to automatically deploy. Jumpers navigate their chutes back to the ground, where staffers await.
Des Moines Skydivers
Started as a nonprofit club back in 1974, Des Moines Skydivers originally provided a way for its skydiving-enthusiast members to enjoy an expensive passion as cheaply as possible. After upgrading its Cessna 195 to two newer models, the group expanded its focus, welcoming members of the public to Winterset Airport for first-time jumps, tandem jumps, accelerated training courses, and varied jumps for seasoned skydivers. The group also holds an annual get-together every Labor Day weekend called Dollar Daze, during which partygoers can pay a dollar to either jump from an airplane or give a quick smooch to the pilot.
