Working For Skydive Milwaukee
Sky Knights Background
In operation since 1963, Sky Knights Sport Parachute Club took on the Skydive Milwaukee name in 2005 as an effort to increase brand awareness. The club is owned by the approximately 100 members, all of whom were or are licensed skydivers. Each year a Board of Directors is elected to manage the club.
Skydive Milwaukee provides skydiving services to thousands of Southeastern Wisconsin residents each year. From first-time jumpers to experienced licensed skydivers. We are a seasonal operation that runs from April through the first week of November and the majority of our business is done on Saturday and Sunday.
