Welcome to Wisconsin Skydiving Center – your destination for skydiving and parachute rigging services! Owner Bo Babovic is passionate about the craft of rigging and maintaining the gear and equipment for Wisconsin Skydiving Center, the local skydiving community, and pilots in need of a trustworthy rigger to maintain their emergency parachute systems.
Bo has over 45 years in the sport of skydiving and military parachuting operations having made over 16,000 parachute jumps. Bo has over 200 jumps on round parachutes and holds the rating as a Skydive Instructor Examiner with the USPA (he teaches, the teachers).
Additionally, Bo is an instrument-rated commercial pilot with 2500+ hours and is an FAA Certified Mechanic with Inspection Authorization.
As per FAR Part 91.307 and 105.43, all Emergency Parachutes must be inspected and repacked every 180 days. We offer an average turnaround of 2 days. Pilots can also fly into the rigging shop at the Fort Atkinson Municipal Airport (61C), taxi to the hangar for drop off and pick up.
As an FAA Master Parachute Rigger, Bo is authorized to perform repairs on TSO Equipment. The most common alteration is to redistribute the bulk of the canopy to make it more compatible with the seat of the aircraft and increase the pilot’s comfort. I can also adjust the harness to better fit your body size.
We proudly host emergency bailout workshops to train you on how and when to bail out, how to deploy the parachute, and most importantly, how to land it safely. These workshops typically include an actual orientation skydive (not mandatory). Call Bo directly for more details. (941)744-7766
