Skydive the South is located at Historic Moton Airfield, home of the Tuskegee Airmen in Tuskegee, Alabama. It features tandem skydives, fun jumps, free flying, and wingsuiting. There is also the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic site and museum to check out while you’re there!
The Tuskegee airmen were the first African American military pilots and they fought as a unit in World War II.
Skydive the South replaced Skydive Opelika and Skydive Tuskegee, and features a Cessna 182 that flies up to 10,500 feet. They are closed during the winter and open on the weekends during the summer.
If you’re looking to learn to skydive, you can rent gear and take ground school here, with a tandem progression or Instructor Assisted Deployment (IAD) progression available for students. There is coaching available for 2-way and 4-way formation skydiving, and occasional tracking camps for skill progression. They also have a number of skilled freeflyers so there is something for every discipline.
Skydive the South occasionally throws small boogies with a Cessna Caravan or PAC-750 that they will take up to 18,000 feet! During their Easter boogie, they had belly and freefly organizers, turbine aircraft, a food truck, and even a flock of wingsuiters. It was a success and raised money for a local nonprofit.
For a small, family-run Cessna drop zone, they run a great boogie. Check them out if you’re in the area.
