Creating a Business Plan for a Skydiving Business
A common mistake for an entrepreneur is to not create a business plan.
A good business plan establishes both a framework and a roadmap for your business. If you don't have a business plan, your leadership will be handicapped, choosing short-term opportunities at the expense of long-term benefits.
Start by defining your business mission. The process of writing a mission statement doesn't have to be complicated. From there, the other piece of the business plan puzzle will begin to fall in place.
Finding a Non-Competitive Business
If you want to open a skydiving business it's essential that you learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a skydiving business outside of your community will be much more likely to talk with you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. If you are persistent, you can find a business mentor who is willing to help you out.

You can even start an INDOOR SKY DIVING BUSINESS
It’s a well-known fact that it can be frightening, exhilarating, overwhelming and satisfying all at the same time.
“Indoor Skydiving” has the double effects on entertainment and sports combination
It can be a best time and opportunity to introduce the Indoor Skydiving business, boost domestic entertainment consumption, and provide a new, high-taste, stimulating and healthy recreational activities. It is best to first start a Indoor Skydiving operation facility.
Indoor Skydiving is a vertical wind tunnel that allows you to experience the freedom of human flight. Located at the gateway to the
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The approximate speed of the wind in the tunnel is 120mph.
This sport can be practiced by children and adults and has many health benefits and much lower medical restrictions.
Types of Wind Tunnels
There are two main types of skydiving wind tunnels: Sucker/Vaccuum Pressure Suction and Blower/Air-Pusher. The problem with the Blowers is they require solid skydiving skills and falling out of the air column happens often. Of course these tunnels have a lot of safety air-bags around them, so this is not a safety issue but still many people find it just too hard to fly this way.
Anyway most more advanced skydivers prefer the Blower/Air-Pushes type because flying outdoor is more enjoyable. The Vaccuum Pressure Suction is preferred by less experienced participants because they are surrounded by walls which make it much easier to stay in the air and perform various figures.
Going to a skydiving wind tunnel is a wonderful, affordable and quick way to test whether you will like skydiving or not. Of course, the real skydiving is a different experience but the tunnel will give you enough “taste” before you decide whether you want to make the “big real jump“.
