Thank you for stopping by to learn more about what Skydive Snohomish has to offer licensed skydivers in Washington state!
Whether you’re spending the day or week with us, or call Skydive Snohomish home – welcome. We’re so glad you’re here.
Due to the nature of our airport and landing area, we provide service to experienced skydivers who have earned their C or D licenses. To ensure skydivers meet DZ requirements and to speed along check-in, please be sure you read and are prepared with the Jumper Requirements listed below.
Note, in keeping with our culture of safety and professionalism, we understand our policies and procedures for vetting licensed skydivers could seem a bit more thorough and rigid than what may be found elsewhere. Due to this reality, we understand that Skydive Snohomish may be great for some and not for others. I’m sure you’re cool with it though because it’s always good to know the others you are sharing the sky with are all heads up just like you!

Skydive Snohomish currently operates one enhanced Cessna 182 and a Cessna Grand Caravan with an 850hp Blackhawk engine conversion. At least 6-8 slots are set aside exclusively for licensed skydivers on each caravan load, all season long.
Wingsuiting is not compatible with our DZ operations, airspace, and available landing areas, and cannot be performed at Skydive Snohomish at this time.
Canopy Size and Wingloading Policy
At SkySno, we’re committed to the very highest safety standards and best practices in aviation and skydiving.
After considering data gathered from many sources – including the USPA Fatality Reports, existing canopy size and wing loading limits observed domestically and internationally, canopy manufacturer and designer recommendations, consultation with skydivers and S&TAs in our local community and elsewhere – we’ve instituted a strict Canopy Policy.
We appreciate you taking the time to read it and adhering to our policy relating to our rules of the sky, as well as canopy size and wing loading specifications for jumpers with less than and in excess of 1,000 jumps:
Rules of the Sky
All jumpers regardless of wing loading or minimum canopy size will be expected to perform the following on every jump or jump privileges may be revoked:
- Promote a smooth flow of traffic
- Establish and maintain vertical canopy separation
- Establish and maintain horizontal separation
- Fly a predictable pattern
- Follow the landing direction set by the first person down
- Perform turns at a safe altitude
- Land safely within the designated landing area
- Perform consistent stand up landings
