new hangar under construction at Skydive Paraclete XP

The New Hangar at XP

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

On March 1st we broke ground for a new hangar and we’re so excited! In the beginning, the new hangar will house aircraft and paid packing. This will allow teams to be more efficient during their training day as there will be a better flow from landing, to picking up their rigs and getting on the next load.

The new hangar is 100′ x 100′ and 26′ high and projected to be complete around the end of July. This is the first phase of DZ improvements as we’ll be moving manifest to the new hangar over the next year or so. Our next phase will begin in 2018 by building a new bunk house for military groups.

Thank you to everyone for all your support! We’re excited to grow with you! Here’s a look at our progress thus far:

As a member of the Canadian National 8-way skydiving team, we have trained at many DZs over the years. By far, we have never been treated as well at any other drop zone in the world. This is our new go to DZ. Cannot say enough good things about this operation!!!
