A Letter To Our Missouri Skydiving Guests

To our Missouri skydiving adventure enthusiasts - welcome to Ozarks Skydive Center. We appreciate you visiting our website and we hope to host you for your skydiving adventure! We're passionate about our business, the sport of skydiving and most of all, your safety and experience with us!

We'd like to tell you who we are and what you can expect should you decide to jump with us!

Who We Are

We are Bryan and Lyn Wolford, owners of Ozarks Skydive Center. We're a husband and wife team who have been in the sport for over 20 years... and we're as passionate about the sport today as we were when we first started.

Through the years, we have visited dozens of skydive centers around the country and have picked up things we liked and disposed of those that we didn't. We're not the biggest skydive center around and truthfully, we don't aspire to be. Our specialty is working with small groups and individuals seeking that personal touch. We recognize that skydiving is a huge life event and it's our goal that each of our guests feel special while experiencing this major life achievement. You'll never feel like just another jump in our log books, but instead you'll feel like part of our family. This is our goal every time we open our hangar doors.

If you're thinking of making a skydive with great service and personal attention, we invite you join us at Ozarks Skydive Center - "the friendliest skydiving center in America."

How We're Different

Ozarks Skydive Center is the ideal place to skydive. If you do your research, you'll learn that we're much different than many Missouri skydiving drop zones. We offer a culture of safety, modern facilities, highly qualified staff, attention to detail and a personal touch you seldom find anywhere else.

Our biggest difference than other skydiving centers is our business model. Many skydiving center's focus on high volume and moving as quickly as possible in order to increase revenue.

Our approach is the opposite. Our focus is to work with smaller groups and individuals in order to customize the experience. Because of this attention ... people love their experience with us!

With this different approach, our business has thrived over the years and we continue to grow, one new skydiving student at a time.

What You Should Know

You should know that not all skydiving centers are the same. Presently in our sport, there is a lot of price undercutting with the presence of daily deals and even false websites that appear to be skydiving centers but actually route you to a call center where they will send you to a skydiving center that's not where you thought it would be. Doing your research and not shopping just on price will pay dividends in the kind of experience you have. You truly do get what you pay for.

Skydiving is an aviation activity requiring continuous maintenance... in other words, it's an expensive business to operate. Low cost pricing requires a business to either cut corners or upsell you in every way possible upon arrival. Neither leads to a good experience and in some cases safety practices can be compromised.

Allow your starting point for selecting a skydive center begin with whether they're a member of the United States Parachute Association (USPA) or not. Be sure to check reviews on their Facebook, Google Reviews, Yelp or TripAdvisor pages to get a sense of what they're all about. With a little bit of search, you'll get a clearer understanding of whether it's a business you wish to endorse or not.

What You Can Expect

With the Ozarks Skydiving team, you can expect an amazing experience all the way around. You can expect excellent service along with an excellent experience. We won't try to up-sell you. Our prices are at a rate whereby we are able to hire excellent staff, maintain our aircraft and equipment properly and give our guests good value for money based on a first class experience.
