Operating During COVID-19

Monday, March 16, 2020

It is the mission of Paraclete XP to offer a world-class indoor skydiving experience with safety in mind – both with the physical act of flight and the prevention of germs wherever possible. 

Undeniably, this past week has brought about heightened concerns of the COVID-19 virus, and we take these warnings seriously. Having closely followed the guidelines published by the World Health Organization and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, along with state and local authorities, we have elected to continue flight operations on our published schedule. 

Operationally, we have always been proactive about reducing the spread of germs whether it be for the common cold and now most seriously with the coronavirus. Our standard procedures have always been to sanitize flight gear which includes helmets and goggles after every flight in the tunnel. Jumpsuits are laundered on a regular basis and earplugs are never shared; they are designed for single use. Hand sanitizer is positioned throughout our facility and all staff and guests are advised to use it often along with washing hands thoroughly as advised by medical authorities. 

Additionally, any staff feeling unwell are advised to stay at home. 

All guests exhibiting flu-like or respiratory symptoms are kindly asked to reschedule their flights to another date. 

We are committed to continue operations while exhibiting caution to mitigate the risk of the coronavirus.

My wife and I celebrated our 34th Anniversary by going Indoor Skydiving at ParacleteXP in Raeford, NC. We are in our 60's and this activity was safe, fun, and exciting. Dalton was our flight instructor and we recommend that you ask for him by name: He will guide you and have a great time with you in the wind tunnel.
