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.

    “The skydiving class and jump where all assisted by very inoformative and professional skydivers that where there the whole time and welcomed any and all questions we had so that we were quite comfortable when we made our first jump! The Jason's were all very helpful and they where there every step of the way while also making it fun and exciting. I would highly suggest Des Moines Skydivers to everyone and anyone I meet. Before this groupon I didn't even know about this DZ but after the groupon when I tell people I had gotten it and did make my first jump people right away ask of it was the groupon from a few weeks ago and how they saw it and thought about doing it but that something came up or the offer had already expired etc. I would love to see another groupon from this club that could also be used towards jumps now that I have made one jump I want to jump again but of course if I were to see another groupon at some point in time that I would deffinitely purchase one again and I would highly recommend it to everyone I know.”
