Our Staff

A safety first philosophy is the foundation of our business. We foster this culture at Skydive Allegan because our staff members are less like employees and more like family. Each staff member is sent through rigorous training and hold the appropriate certification, license and medical clearance through the FAA, USPA and other appropriate agencies congruent to their position.

All parachute packers are supervised on site by an FAA certified Senior Rigger.
