STP boasts several types of skydiving aircraft to satisfy your adrenaline needs! We have a turbine Beechcraft King Air and a souped-up Cessna 182 (“The Fireball”) stationed full-time at the dropzone, with specialty aircraft flying in for special events throughout the year. Casas, Twin Otters, and a Bell JetRanger helicopter are all on the schedule this year. STP is the only dropzone in Virginia that can boast a Casa tailgate jump plane!
Whether you need a new face shield for your full face helmet, replacement batteries for your dytter or a new STP T-shirt, we’ve got it. We can also help you with large purchases like a new jumpsuit, canopy or container.
There are several onsite riggers at STP to take care of your every rigging need, from a simple reserve repack to major harness, container or canopy repairs work.
STP has 2 primary landing areas. The main landing area, a grassy, wide open field, is for jumpers of all levels. There is also a high performance landing area designated for swoopers. Both are an easy walk back to the packing area.
