Skydiving comes to Madisonville


If you’ve ever wanted to feel free as a bird, describe yourself as an adrenaline junkie, or just need a push out of your comfort zone, Texas Skydiving Company has now made Madisonville its home, just for you.

Texas Skydiving Company, the Lone Star Sate’s newest skydiving center, has landed here in Madisonville.  This family owned and operated business has been skydiving since 1960. 

The family patriarch, Mr. Vin Silvia, began the family’s journey with the 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers during WWII over 50 years ago.  Since then, the Silvia family has been active in the industry as operators and professional skydivers; even participating in the opening ceremonies of the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea in the skydivers formation of the Olympic rings.

The goal of their company is to provide customers with a safe, world-class skydiving experience.  Whether you’re a first-time skydiver, student, or a seasoned jumper, they aim to exceed your expectations.

The company has made Madisonville Municipal Airport because of its central location and convenience to all the major cities and metro areas in the heart of Texas.  Their existence will bring welcome benefits to the city, inviting tourism and providing jobs for the locals. 

Vice President, Frank Silvia, says “We’re so pleased by the warm welcome we’ve received by everyone in Madisonville and are very excited to be bringing Skydiving to the area.  The Silvia family looks forward to a long and enjoyable relationship with this community.  We invite everyone to come visit us at the ‘Drop Zone’ and make a skydive!”
