Established in February 2016, Skyhigh India, a unit of GoForth India Pvt Ltd is India's first full time commercial skydiving drop zone. Skyhigh India is the first company of its kind that has made skydiving available and accessible in India all through the year.[SP1]
A drop zone (DZ) is a place where parachutists or skydivers land and take off from. SkyHigh India is a recreational skydiving drop zone located at the Aligarh airstrip, two and half hours away from New Delhi via the Yamuna Expressway.
At the drop zone, there is a runway from where the plane takes off and two designated landing strips specially designed for skydivers to land. We believe in giving skydivers, their accompanying friends and family and viewers a true experience of an international drop zone. Apart from the training room and lounge area, there is specially designed viewers gallery at the drop zone for those who wish to witness a live skydive.
The drop zone also has highly qualified personnel on site; a drop zone operator or owner (DZO), manifestors (who maintain the flight manifest documents defining who flies and when), pilots, instructors or coaches, camera operators, parachute packers and riggers, and other general staff.
In less than six months of operation, the drop zone is proud to have earned the title of being a foreign affiliate of the United States Parachuting Association (USPA). This means that Skyhigh India [SP2] is a world class drop zone that works according to international safety standards. The equipment used at the drop zone is imported from the USA. We use the most sophisticated equipment in accordance with globally accepted standard operating procedures for skydiving. We have the latest equipment with all Reserve Parachutes packed by the Federal Aviation Authority of America (FAA) certified packers only and Automatic Activation Devices (AAD) installed in all our parachute systems.
The aircrafts used for skydiving are certified by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). We have a rigorous training procedure that is compulsory before undertaking any adventure activity. All enthusiasts have to be appropriately clothed for the activity and have to understand the norms, guidelines and communication language of each sport.
We adhere to global standards of safety and security of all adventure enthusiasts.
In order to participate in this extreme adventure sport, people have usually travelled abroad, making it the sport not just inaccessible but also unaffordable. The face of skydiving has changed that by finally bringing world class skydiving to India. Skydiving is an extreme adventure sport and the adrenaline rush of jumping out a plane is unmatched by any other adventure activity. With clear skies, fine weather, a panoramic view and the best facilities, SkyHigh believes in gifting you not just a jump from the sky, but an experience of a lifetime!
