Skydive Finger Lakes: Why Choose Us

Published: May 30, 2016

Located in the Finger Lakes wine region and with spectacular views over the Finger Lakes, Skydive Finger Lakes has been welcoming first-time and experienced skydivers from Rochester, Syracuse and all over New York since 1982.

If you're looking to book your next skydive near Syracuse, here are just a few reasons to choose us for your skydiving experience.

Spectacular Views Over the Finger Lakes

We're lucky to be situated close to the incredible Finger Lakes, meaning we enjoy spectacular views over the Lakes as we fall through the air and pilot our parachutes back to earth.

The Finger Lakes is a group of 11 long and narrow lakes, so named because they resemble fingers! Skydive with us and you'll get a unique view of these natural wonders. The Lakes make a great backdrop for skydive photos and videos, too.

Historic Ovid Airport, NY

We operate out of the historic Ovid Airport, NY, which has stood at its current location since 1961.

The airport is unique in that it is privately owned and operates completely from private funds. We receive no government funding or backing to keep the airport going, and are incredibly proud of the history of skydiving here.

There have been lots of changes to the airport since it was first built, including the extension of runways and building of new runways, Today, it consists of paved and grass runways, four hangars, several small cabins and a clubhouse for the skydiving center.

Highly Experienced Staff

Our team of skydiving staff are all highly experienced and have completed thousands of jumps between them. Each member of our team is licensed by the USPA (United States Parachute Association).

We're passionate skydivers and pride ourselves on providing amazing, personalized and professional service to help you enjoy your time with us and create a memory that will last a lifetime.

USPA Member Drop Zone

The USPA exists to regulate the sport of skydiving here in the United States. They help to keep our sport safe and put in place guidelines and rules to ensure it stays that way.

USPA member drop zones, like Skydive Finger Lakes, have been approved because they follow safety guidelines set forth by the USPA.
