Things To Do

If your plan is to visit our wind tunnel for an extended period in order to max out on your flying skills, we encourage getting your head out of the tunnel from time to time and explore our area! There are a lot of things to do in Raeford and Fayetteville especially if you love aviation and parachuting. This is the hub of where so much of it began!

This is a must do! If you want to skydive without jumping out of a plane, this is the place to do it. The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and just plain awesome. I can't wait to go back for another flight.
