eSkydiving.com is powered by the Skydive Spaceland family of dropzones. The first Spaceland, Skydive Spaceland Houston, is a three-generation family-owned and -operated skydiving business located in Rosharon, Texas, about 20 minutes south of downtown Houston. First opened for business in February 2000 by Steve Boyd, Sr., Skydive Spaceland Houston has grown into a truly world-class skydiving facility open 7 days a week and capable of handling hundreds of skydivers jumping daily. The Skydive Spaceland brand of high-capacity, high-quality skydiving centers has expanded to Clewiston/Miami, Fl.; Atlanta (Rockmart), Ga.; Dallas (Whitewright), Texas; and San Marcos, Texas. More than 150,000 skydiving students have been instructed at Spaceland and the company facilitates about 200,000 skydives per year.
Skydive Spaceland Houston has also hosted the world’s largest skydiving competition, the United States Parachuting Association National Skydiving Championships, as well as several other large competitions including the U.S. National Collegiate Parachuting Championships and multiple U.S. National Canopy Piloting Championships. Several state records have also been set at Spaceland including the Texas State Record 150-person skydive in 2007, 168-person skydive in 2011, and multiple Women’s Texas State Record skydives held jointly as fundraisers for Jump for the Rose, a local breast cancer diagnosis and treatment facility.
While some skydiving centers focus on licensed jumper fun, Spaceland takes a holistic approach to welcoming and supporting all types of skydivers, with a special emphasis on student and newly licensed jumper training. Spaceland’s industry-leading Skydiver Training Program meets or exceeds all standards set by the United States Parachute Association, and their popular A license in a week training program draws students from all around the world to train. Indeed, the Skydive Spaceland family of drop zones graduates more civilian students to their A license in the U.S. annually than any other skydiving school.
