Skydiving Kansas City since 1998
Skydive KC has been the skydiving center of choice for Kansas City, Topeka and Overland Park since 1998. Founded by Chris Hall, our dropzone has earned the reputation as being the premier skydiving Kansas City center because of our impeccable safety record, customer service and turbine aircraft.
Our major point of difference from other skydiving centers is the aircraft we fly - a turbine Cessna U206. This aircraft allows us to fly to 14,000 feet MSL allowing for maximum free fall time.
Effective Spring 2024, Skydive Kansas City is under new ownership. Little Engine Ventures, based in Lafayette, IN, acquired the dropzone in 2024 and is excited to share their long history of success with the operation. LEV also owns and manages Skydive Indianapolis and Skydive The Rock.
The mission of Skydive KC is to deliver the best skydiving experience possible. To achieve this, our focus is centered around uncompromising safety standards and providing the best skydiving equipment, aircraft and facilities at a fair and competitive price.
Skydive Kansas City was opened in May 1998 by Chris & John Hall. John started skydiving in 1973 and has witnessed the industry go from old military round parachutes to todays modern Ram-air canopies. John has been known in the skydiving Kansas City area for years as one of the best demonstration jump skydivers in the region making jumps all over the metro since the early 70's.
Chris started skydiving at the age of 18 and traveled the country with his expert skills in freefall photography and even competed in the ESPN X games Pro Tour in 1996. With a combination of over 7000 jumps between the two of them, you had a family and staff that was committed to offering the very best possible experience in the sky.
After a long and successful career, Chris made the decision to retire from the skydiving industry in 2023 and, as a result, Little Engine Ventures acquired the operation in 2024. LEV has exciting plans to continue operating the dropzone meeting and exceeding the standards set forth by Chris & John Hall.
Our Plans For The Future
Skydive Kansas City is committed to offering its skydiving Kansas City customers the very best in customer service, equipment, training and safety at a fair and affordable price.

We look forward to the challenges and growth that skydiving brings to us every season. We welcome you to our sport and hope you find the reward and excitement that drives us daily to do what we love to do.
