Midwest Freefall Sport Parachute Club (SPC), Inc. is a Michigan Non-Profit entity that exists solely for the promotion and enjoyment of Skydiving and Sport Parachuting. The Club's Mission Statement is as follows:
"To develop and promote our membership's interests in the sport of Skydiving; to promote and maintain the highest standards of safety and training in the skydiving industry; to communicate and raise the public consciousness of the safe and responsible nature of skydiving as a sport and recreational activity; and to utilize and embrace the ethical standards and operational procedures established by the United States Parachute Association as affirmed by the USPA Group Member Pledge."
What does this all mean? It doesn't mean that skydiving is a perfectly safe sport - It's not! It doesn't mean that skydiving is a sport for everyone - It isn't! What it means is that we are a group of jumpers who care about the sport and want to share the experience with others in a careful, controlled manner.
Why Does Midwest Freefall SPC Exist?
Midwest Freefall Sport Parachute Club exists as an uncomplicated group of jumpers who enjoy having the privilege of jumping at our outstanding facility in Ray Township, Michigan, close to metropolitan Detroit, in a rural, private setting. We have worked hard to establish what we believe is the most comfortable, inviting place to skydive in Michigan. From the carpeted indoor packing areas, rigging loft, full restroom and shower facilities, shaded picnic tables and relaxing "back yard" feel, to our expertly maintained and equipped aircraft, we are proud of our club facilities.
Do You Have To Be A Member To Jump?
You do not have to be a member to make your first jump at Midwest Freefall SPC. Your first Tandem, AFF or Fun jump can be made as a guest.
Club membership is required of persons making more than one skydive at Midwest. We have structured membership fees so that your total cost does not exceed those experienced at most commercial skydiving centers. Manifest personnel will explain these terms and conditions should you require addtional information.
