New York Skydiving
From April to October, the sky's pretty much the limit for New York skydiving opportunities.

Amenities you might find at these sites include food, showers, camping and RV sites, and videography of your jump.
Niagara Falls has long been noted as a destination for lovers and if you love New York skydiving, you'll love what this region has to offer.

In fact, from a jump starting 13,500 feet in the sky, the skydiver can revel in the picturesque views of the region's abundant fruit orchards and farms in full bloom in the spring, nearby Niagara Falls is clearly visible, and, looking across Lake Ontario, the skydiver can even see the CN Tower in Toronto.
A jump in the Rochester countryside gives the lover of New York skydiving a chance to enjoy the beaches of Lake Ontario, only 10 minutes away. The tranquil rural setting of the jump site here brings the luxury of quiet, serene skydiving since there just isn't a lot of air traffic in the vicinity.
New York skydiving is a joy near the Finger Lakes and Syracuse area where the skydiver will find many other outdoors activities offered in a number of state parks dotted throughout the area. And don't miss out on a delicious tour of the wineries in the area, too.

Saratoga offers a visit to paradise for jumpers who are also golfers – the drop zone here is surrounded by one of the state's premiere golf courses.
