Skydive Coastal Carolinas Introduces a King Air to Its Fleet
Skydive Coastal Carolinas has been skydiving in NC for 20 years, but we've never had a jump plane this awesome! Do you live in Myrtle Beach, Jacksonville or Wilmington? We invite you to come check out our new Beechcraft King Air B90 for yourself and see the North Carolina coastline like you've never seen it before.
Read below to find out what makes the King Air special and why we're so excited to add it to our fleet of aircraft which also includes two Cessna 182s.
In The Blink Of An Eye
The King Air is much faster than a Cessna, in fact it's the fastest skydiving aircraft in the world.
Don't expect to wait longer than 10 minutes from boarding to exit (sorry, no more sneaky plane naps while you're climbing to altitude...)
Bigger Is Better
With space for 15 skydivers, the King Air improves on our Cessnas by 11 skydivers per plane load, more than doubling our jump capacity.
What does this mean for you? We can get you in the sky faster, which means more jumps and reduced wait times. The King Air also allows us to accommodate larger groups, so the time of picking which friends to skydive with is over. Choose them all!
Just Keep Climbing
Our new King Air ensures that you get the most out of your skydiving NC adventure. The size and power of the King Air means that we're able to jump at higher altitudes (14,000 ft.) equating to longer free fall times and an improved skydiving experience.
This will give you an average of 60 seconds in free fall as compared with 30 seconds from 11,000 ft in our Cessna 182 aircraft.
Coastal Carolinas Skydiving Reaching New Levels
The King Air undoubtedly makes Skydive Coastal Carolinas a premium destination for tandem, student, and experienced skydivers from the Jacksonville, Wilmington, and Myrtle Beach areas. With larger jump capacity, increased altitude, and faster turnaround, our experienced jumpers can do bigger and better skydives.
More skydivers doing more jumps - expect an increasingly busy and exciting dropzone experience!
Skydiving in NC
Skydive Coastal Carolinas has been providing tandem skydiving in NC since 1996. We are the only drop zone that offers stunning views of the North Carolina coast. Located in Oak Island, NC we offer spectacular aerial views of Bald Head Island and the iconic Oak Island Lighthouse.
