OUR ACHIEVEMENTSTandem Skydiving in Queenstown since 1990, NZONE Skydive was NZ’s first Tandem Skydive operation and is the only Tandem Skydive company to have won New Zealand’s Supreme Tourism Award. Our mission is to deliver the ultimate adventure experience to each customer through personal service and secure the NZONE brand as being synonymous with quality, safety and excitement. Formed by two parachute enthusiasts back in 1990, the company now employs approximately 65 highly qualified staff and have taken over 300,000 passengers tandem skydiving. The culture we have nurtured within the company is relaxed and professional. Our directors continue to actively participate in the development of the skydive industry. We have progressively invested back into our business. We own and operate two turbine aircraft, have erected purpose built facilities at our skydive dropzones and uphold a rigorous equipment replacement program. Our approach to safety is second to none, with specifically trained parachute packers, an on-site Chief Safety Officer and the Directors’ first-hand knowledge of the industry. Our staff are highly trained and are amongst the most experienced in New Zealand. We believe our focus on product development, customer safety and delivering a very unique personal experience will ensure our continued growth within the tandem skydive adventure and tourism industry.

OUR AIRCRAFTRecently, NZONE invested in a second Cessna Grand Caravan, also known as the Supervan 900. The planes can carry up to nine tandem jumpers – allowing us to keep groups together during their once-in-a-lifetime experience, and is the quietest and most efficient aircraft available for commercial skydiving. The custom designed Supervan 900 has a single turbo-prop engine and is a fixed gear short haul airliner with a four-blade propeller and flat-rated 900 hp engine that gives it the ability to take off quickly and climb rapidly; also meaning its fuel consumption is more economical and the per person carbon footprint is significantly reduced. It meets stringent ‘green’ standards and easily meets strict European noise standards.
OUR SKYDIVING EQUIPMENTOur high performance, rectangular, zero porosity fabric canopies are designed for soft openings and maximum manoeuvrability. The elliptical rectangular cell canopy is a lift producing wing which has a forward speed of approximately 30kph allowing accuracy and ease of landing. The canopy ranges from 330 to 400 square feet. Tandem Parachute Harness Containers The harness container is exactly that, housing all components – the main canopy, reserve and drogue chute. A qualified packer arranges and packs all components; canopies, lines and riser, to enable each part to operate in a specific order, ensuring reliable canopy deployment.
