Our Vibe

There aren’t many places that are built explicitly for adults to have fun, to chase their dreams, to fulfill their desires, to push themselves to discover more about themselves. But that place does exist. We call it Alberta Skydive Central, ASC, the Dropzone, and sometimes, just “home”.

This is a place where you can be creative in a brand new, unimaginable way. It’s a place where seeking pleasure is the purpose with happiness as the goal. It’s a place where freedom of expression goes beyond the conventional norm, where it’s completely expected to have fun all day, where you can find your inner calm or present moment Zen at 200km/h and where you can find people that become best friends in just one jump.

Our skydive center goes next level to help you achieve your hedonistic pursuits. We’ve built best in class facilities, do the highest jumps, have world champion hosted events, and offer the most aircraft capacity so that we attract the coolest people and the best vibes. And we do.

Whether you’re dropping in for your first tandem skydive or you’re a gold medal champion skydiver, know that we’re stoked to add another jumper to the family. Skydiving is a beautiful sport and it’ll be our privilege to share that experience with you. If you want to skydive with people that value living in the now, passionately pursue what sets their soul on fire, and be in a supportive tight community that helps you unlock and achieve big, audacious dreams then, welcome home.

Tour Alberta Skydive Central

If you’re about to make a once in a lifetime decision (or trying to convince yourself), you want to feel comfortable with the people, vibe and the overall experience. Especially if it is a foreign, unknown experience like skydiving! While a digital tour can never really express the infectious energy and excitement, the sweet smell of jet fuel in the air, the connection with your instructor or the heart beating intensity of standing in the door, we’ve tried to pull back the digital curtain and allow you to get to know us and our facility before you even arrive!

What We Think Is Important Is What Makes Us Different

Be Next Level


Even though there is a decent probability you get addicted to skydiving, we treat your jump like it is a once in a lifetime experience. Be Next Level in the experience is a philosophy cultivated by our owners and held deeply by all of our team.

Do we need to have 15,000 square feet of incredible, comfortable facilities, or do the highest jumps in the country, or move our location to a place that has the best views of the Rocky Mountains? Of course none of this is required to skydive and that’s probably why you can’t find this type of experience at this level anywhere else in Canada.

The vision of Alberta Skydive Central is to be one of the best skydive centers in Canada. Although we feel we’ve reached that goal, we’re not done yet. To continue to charge forward and be an industry leading skydiving center is bold, no doubt. But that’s us being next level.

Be Authentic


We don’t look to other skydive centers around the country to see how we can make improvements in our customer service, or innovations in our offerings or facilities. Our team is run by a group with more than 40 years of skydive management experience, a highly talented marketing team and the second largest team of professional skydiving instructors in Canada. We blaze our own path and let others follow us.

That manifests into skydiving in a variety of ways, from start to finish. We’re super focused on prepping you for your first jump. We’ve built tools, tips and resources so you can choose to be super informed and prepared (or you can just wing it). Skydivers are a very diverse group of people and we try to do everything to open the door to this world for everyone.

We embrace the lifestyle and the culture wholly. We live here, we work here – and so we invest everything into making this a rad place.

Be Progressive


Progress is at the very core of the operation of Alberta Skydive Central. While our rockstar team handles daily operations, our management team focuses not on what is, but what could be. We are a mega skydive center because we’re always improving our services, finding new teaching methods and innovative, fun new events.

We abandon archaic student training methods, moved to more progressive and accelerated training models earlier than most skydive centers in the country – some of who still cling to the old guard. In the meantime, our globally traveled staff added, modified, and enhanced a student-training model well beyond the national standard.

Our commitment to high performance training and elevating licensed jumpers on skill level has lead to progressive results. Our skydive center has been recognized by World Champions as a leading parachute training school.

Of course, the ultimate progression in our world is safety. We have a no compromises safety approach, even if that has to seemingly trump customer service.

On-Site Amenities

Not every minute at Alberta Skydive Central can be as exciting as freefall. Paperwork, training, weather and air traffic all play a role in the time from your check-in to landing. Our process is one of the most efficient in the industry, but we’ve also created an incredible space for you, or your cheering squad, to enjoy all of your time with us.
