Skydive Franz Josef Glacier - Franz Josef

Skydive Franz Josef Glacier
Nestled between New Zealand’s highest mountains, the Tasman Sea, stunning temperate rainforest, glowing glaciers, mirror lakes and braided river beds, Franz Josef Glacier has been described as one of the most beautiful places on earth. For this reason and many others, the region was included in the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area. Skydive Franz was founded back in 2010 by Craig Clark, James Meldrum and Alex Miller. Three Kiwi guys with a passion for The West Coast and also enthusiastic aviators. The growth of the business has been rapid as the word of mouth reputation for excellent service, incredible scenery and an outstanding safety culture has spread around the globe. These days the company is still owned and operated by James, wife Andrea, Craig and wife Jo. Skydive Franz offers skydiving from 13,000 feet, 16,000 feet and 19,000 feet. We are fully certified New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority 'Adventure Aviation' operators. And we have a 100% safety record. Our Tandem Masters are world class, fun, vibrant and pride themselves on their professionalism. Our aircraft is maintained to an incredibly high standard, and our pilots are commercially rated mountain pilots who know the local weather conditions inside-out.
