About Skydive Windy City
When it comes to appreciating Chicago's skyline, few experiences can stack up against Skydive Windy City. Just an hour south of the Loop, (the closest jump site to Chicago) jumpers freefall toward breathtaking scenery from over a mile up. On their way down they'll have a clear shot from Chicago to Lake Michigan's south shore, and much of northwest Indiana. Tandem jumpers can enjoy the exhilaration without any worries thanks to professional, experienced instructors who are strapped in behind them for the ride. And though making it to the ground takes just a few minutes, jumpers can relive and share the adventure thanks to available photo and video packages.
