Come Skydive in Pennsylvania with the World’s Most Experienced Skydiver!
Above the Poconos Skydivers, has been serving the New York, NJ and Pennsylvania skydiving community since 1961 making us THE oldest continuously running, same management, USPA member skydiving center in the World. This Northeast PA skydiving center is run by Don Kellner, the man who holds the Guinness World Record for the most sport parachute jumps. Our areas of expertise include fun jumps, tandem skydiving, advanced skydiving lessons, freefall photography, and FAA certified parachute rigging.
Safety is our top priority and our record shows it. Not all skydiving schools are the same and our tandem skydiving safety record is incomparable since we started our tandem skydiving lessons in 1984. No other New York, NJ or Pennsylvania skydiving school can match it. This does not mean that you can’t get hurt, but we will not sacrifice safety to look cool. All of our staff are appropriately licensed and certified through the United States Parachute Association and focused on your safety. We hold them to higher standards than the USPA requires. Our jump aircraft, two Super Cessna 210-5, are meticulously maintained and are recognized as the safest in the industry. We are located in a low air traffic area and have a mile long, easy to spot and obstacle free landing zone.
