Skydive Maitland

604 New England Highway, Rutherford NSW 2320

For most a tandem skydive is usually a once in a lifetime experience an adventure to mark a milestone, a thrill to let you know you're still alive or perhaps just a bucket list activity. But for owners Jay and Mel it turned out to be much more than that and 15 years on their love for skydiving only keeps growing.

Our playground is 14,000ft above the earth, some people call it a job, but really, when you're having as much fun as we do I'm pretty sure it's no longer classified as a job. We love what we do and we love sharing the experience of skydiving with as many people as we can, which is evident when you meet the crew.

Our team of experienced skydivers are fully accredited with the Australian Parachute Federation (APF) and combined we have over 100 years of skydiving experience. We are a fun loving bunch of professionals who remember that although it may be our 5th skydive for the day, it's your 1st.
