Skydiving at TAZ with Mid America Sport Parachute Club

tandem jump

Skydiving is one of the extreme sports practiced here in Taylorville, IL. Mid-America Sport Parachute Club is located at TAZ (the official symbol for Taylorville Municipal Airport) and diving instruction is given if you are a novice, tandem jumps are available and if you have your license you can enjoy jumping where the US Army Team, the Golden Knights, practice when in the area.

Our Central Illinois inn has guests from all over the world and some of them have learned to skydive while staying here. Practically everything is less expensive out here in the country and, I imagine, skydiving costs are no exception. Come out and jump out of a perfectly good airplane. Call for jump information at 217-824-JUMP.

Make your reservations at the Market Street Inn by going to www.marketstreetinn.com and click on “Check Availability” in the upper right corner or call 800-500-1466. 

Make the day last longer by viewing the sunset from waaaaayyyyyy up there.   After a tough day of falling through the air and going up again just

fall out again, come home to wine and fruit and cheese at our Springfield Area Inn, soak in your double whirlpool for a while and then go to dinner at one of the restaurants here.  Come back, have a great night of sleep filled rest and be ready for a sunrise jump tomorrow.   We are waiting to welcome you.
