Yes, everyone thinks their dropzone is the best. Here is why we think ours is!
We have the best fun jumper community in the state. It doesn't matter if you have 2 jumps or 10,000 jumps. You will find yourself at home at Out of the Blue!
Our B200 King Air comfortably carries 20 skydivers and averages only 7 minutes to altitude. It has a 6' step and bar for launching large formations, and our wingsuiters love the high tail!
We love students! Have you always dreamed of being able to skydive solo? Our AFF program is the first step in becoming a licensed skydiver!
As one of the oldest USPA Group Member drop zones in Colorado, it is obvious that safety is a top priority at Out of the Blue. Skydiving is considered an extreme sport and with that comes inherent dangers, but Out of the Blue minimizes the risks by adhering to strict safety standards set forth by the FAA and USPA.
Our students & fun jumpers love the huge landing area and the ability to walk right back to the hanger after landing. The DZ is surrounded by fields, so finding alternate landing areas is a breeze!
At Out of the Blue, it’s not just another day at work for our staff. It’s another opportunity to share the amazing sport of skydiving with others. Our instructors are passionate skydivers and are held to the highest standards.
As one of the oldest USPA Group Member drop zones in Colorado, Out of the Blue is the obvious choice for first-timers. A tandem jump is the quickest and easiest way to experience skydiving for the first time.
You’ll be paired with one of our USPA-rated tandem instructors who will be with you through the whole process. After about 10 minutes of ground instruction, you’ll be ready to make your first skydive. You and your instructor will be strapped together with special parachute gear designed for two. You’ll then enjoy a beautiful plane ride to an elevation of about 18,000 feet msl – that’s more than 12,000 feet above the ground (agl)– where your Colorado skydiving experience officially begins. From there, you’ll exit the plane with your instructor and experience the remarkable feeling of freefall. At about 5,000 feet agl, your parachute will be deployed. From there, you can sit back and relax for the scenic canopy ride back to earth.Book Now

This package combines our handcam package with our outside package.

We love fun-jumpers and realize that without them, the sport would be lost. At Out of the Blue, you’ll be treated to an upbeat vibe and find yourself hanging around even through bad weather, just because you’re enjoying yourself!
We hope you discover for yourself, our dropzone is well worth the easy drive from Denver or Colorado Springs. Out of the Blue is proud to be a USPA Group Member drop zone, and safety is our priority. You won’t find bumpy trailer rides or a giant directional arrow here. You will find a large landing area with accurate wind socks directly in front of our hangar. Before ever jumping with us, we’ll give you a briefing on “outs” and our established landing patterns. While we love having fun, we also love our skydivers and will enforce the rules even if it means grounding someone.Pricing
Out of the Blue is proud to operate the fastest jump ship in the state. Our B200 King Air can carry 20 skydivers comfortably and averages just seven minutes to altitude. The six foot step and bar make it easy to launch big ways, and the high tail makes it a dream for wingsuiters. In addition to a great plane, Out of the Blue Skydiving offers extremely competitive pricing. Out of the Blue Skydiving also has in-house rigging services for all of your gear needs. Typical turn around time for reserve repacks is only a week.
Learn skydiving in Colorado without being attached to an instructor with Out of the Blue’s Accelerated Freefall program, also called AFF.
AFF is an intense program that focuses on both freefall and canopy skills. AFF consists of ground training and a series of at least seven jumps divided into Categories A through E as recommended by the USPA. Students are prepared for their AFF jumps in a classroom environment, where they learn about proper freefall body position, emergency procedures, and canopy flight. After completing the classroom portion, students are usually ready for their first jump the same day, weather permitting.Pricing
The seven-jump AFF curriculum allows students to progressively learn the skills necessary when it comes to skydiving solo in Colorado, or any other USPA Group Member drop zone. All of the jumps take place at an altitude of about 18,000 feet msl, allowing students plenty of time to experience freefall. Two USPA-rated instructors accompany students for the first three AFF jumps, while only one instructor is required for the remaining jumps. The instructors ensure proper freefall position and parachute deployment. All AFF jumps include radio communications to help guide students to the landing area.Call Now
There’s no question about it…..skydiving is an extreme sport, and with that comes risks. Just like climbing, rafting, or skiing, you can get hurt or killed skydiving. That said, millions of skydives are safely performed each year. At Out of the Blue, we do everything we can to make skydiving as safe as possible, which includes adhering to strict standards set forth by the USPA and FAA. We consider our USPA-rated instructors to be some of the best in the country; and please note, we are one of the oldest USPA Group Member drop zones in Colorado. In addition, we only use state-of-the art equipment that has been inspected and maintained by an FAA-certified rigger. All of our tandem and student gear is equipped with advanced, computerized units called Automatic Activation Devices or AAD’s. In the very unlikely event an instructor or student is unable to deploy a parachute, the AAD will automatically fire one for them. To make for safer canopy landings, we have an established landing pattern developed by experienced canopy pilots. If you are still uncertain, come see our safety practices in action. You’re always welcome at our drop zone, even if you are just a curious spectator!
Participants are required to be at least 18 years of age with a valid photo ID. Sorry, but there are absolutely no exceptions. As long as you are healthy, there is no upper age limit.
Yes, each person is weighed before jumping, and you must weigh less than 225 pounds in street clothes and shoes.
All of our gear is equipped with two parachutes. In simple terms, if one doesn’t work, you have a backup called a reserve. Each reserve is inspected and packed by an FAA-certified rigger every 180 days.
You should plan on spending about half a day at the drop zone. We do our best to get you in the air as soon as we can, but we are at the mercy of the weather. We must follow established safety standards regarding clouds, wind and rain, so appointments are sometimes delayed. If there is a weather hold, remember we are just watching out for your safety. Most people feel that skydiving is worth the wait!
Dress in comfortable clothes for the season, but nothing too bulky. We recommend pants or shorts and a t-shirt. Men are usually more comfortable wearing something looser and lighter than jeans. Sneakers are the best option for footwear. Absolutely no open-toe shoes or shoes/boots with hooks. Out of the Blue Skydiving provides participants with goggles and we can provide jumpsuits upon request. We even have goggles that fit over eyeglasses, so you’ll be able to see your entire skydiving experience.
Out of the Blue Skydiving will take you to an altitude of about 18,000 feet msl. Given the elevation of the airport, that’s more than 12,000 feet above the ground. FYI….Out of the Blue has the fastest jump plane in the state, so getting jumpers to altitude is easy and comfortable.
Freefall is an amazing sensation that doesn’t really feel like falling at all. To fully understand and appreciate it, you have to try skydiving yourself!
Our parachutes are packed in such a way to provide a gentle opening. While you will feel it open, it usually doesn’t hurt. You’ll mostly notice some pressure around your leg straps as you transition from a belly-to-earth freefall position to a vertical position under canopy.
Definitely! Our hangar is right in front of the landing area, so it’s super convenient for anybody to watch your skydiving experience. Your family and friends can even listen to your pre-jump briefing and watch you get suited up!
You are more than welcome to take as many pictures as you would like on the ground before and after your jump, but you can’t take a camera with you while you jump. The USPA recommends at least 200 skydives before carrying any type of camera while jumping, and as a USPA Group Member, Out of the Blue Skydiving follows their recommendations. If you would like to capture your experience, we have video and picture options available.
Reservations are recommended, but not required. Just keep in mind, there may be extremely long wait-times if you are a walk-in. We’ll do our best to accommodate you, but it’s best to make a reservation.
Your skydiving experience can be paid for with cash or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express). Sorry, checks are not accepted for tandem or student jumps.
There is a vending machine at the drop zone for drinks and snacks. If you need something more substantial, the town of Limon is just minutes away and has several dining options available. You can also feel free to bring your own sack lunch as we have picnic tables and chairs available for some of the best dining views around!
