History of Jumptown
Our history in skydiving goes all the way back to May of 1959 when four sport jumpers put Jumptown (formerly known as Parachutes Incorporated) on the map as the very first purpose-built skydiving center in the United States. Of course, both Jumptown and skydiving have evolved a great deal since then. Read about Jumptown's humble beginnings and how we still honor that rich history that defines who we are today.
