Meet The Owners: DonnaMarie & Bill Hasenfus

Bill Hasenfus started Skydive Adventure (formally Para-Naut Inc) in 1961 – He moved the operation to it’s present location in 1965 – the name change Skydive Adventure came in the 90’s, but Bill has been the only Owner/Operator since it started.

Bill Hasenfus (D-404) holds the following ratings: Senior Rigger – Static Line Instructor – Commercial Pilot ticket – Pro Rating and has been a member of the Liberty Parachute Team for 30+ years (jumping at events such as EAA – Oklahoma City Air Show – Las Vegas Air Show). Bill is one of eleven members of the Liberty Team owned by Larry Bartlet and Doug Gipe.  At 78 years young he says, “that Skydiving keeps him young and in shape”.

Skydive Adventure is a member of the United States Parachute Association and follows basic safety requirements for all skydiving activities, including the use of approved training methods, appropriately rated personnel, and the latest in student parachute equipment.  Bill Hasenfus, Skydive owner-operator, has been jumping out of airplanes and training students for the past 53 years with an excellent safety record. For the past 30 years, Bill, his wife DonnaMarie and the professional staff train between 1,500 and 2,500 first-time students each year.

When someone decides to throw their body out of an airplane, they call us to sign up for a Tandem Skydive, after which they may pursue skydiving as a sport with one of our programs offered to obtain their license.  Students are the main business and have priority at this drop zone.  We have independent contractors and experienced jumpers that enjoy working with new Students – putting together formation dives from the Cessna aircraft that our center operates.  A jump at Skydive Adventure holds some of the most spectacular scenery Wisconsin has to offer with breathtaking views of our lakes, rivers, and seasonal changes – as well as a view of the Cities that are located around us.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Blue Skies,
Bill & DonnaMarie Hasenfus

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Hasenfus,

    I am hosting a benefit for a one year old girl who had suffered a stroke at five months. She spent several months afterward awaiting her heart transplant while admitted at the Children’s Hospital of Milwaukee.
    Lizzie’s parents (Benjamin Dercks & Sandy Simmons of Kaukauna) will need a lot of help to offset Lizzie’s medical expenses.
    The event will take place on May 10th. We are still in need of donations of any kind, whereas we will be having an auction and raffle. 100% of proceeds will go to her parents.
    If you are interested in participating, please contact me. An event flyer can be made available via email attachment upon request. Thank you for your time.

    Sincerely,
    Nate Koskelin

  12. So, do you no longer offer static-line or AFF? Is tandem the only option for first-time divers?

  13. Josh Achtemeier

    Hello,

    I have 27 career jumps and am an A-License holder. I was curious if your dropzone offers fun jumping and rig rentals?

    Thank you!

  14. Rachael Lehman

    A big thank you for a great jump and videos. Would you please ask JR to change the settings on the videos so they can be viewed on mobile devices. For some reason ours can’t be but others can.

    Thanks!

    • Rachael, We will contact the edit man and let him know that your DVDs are not able to view on mobile – See what he can do
      We are glad that you and Jay had a good time here with us at Skydive Adventure and remember your time here with a ‘Smile’ and Blue Skies!

  24. Jon Aguirre

    How much to get an A lincese in skydiving

    • Jon, It all depends on if you stay with it – pay-up-front (you get a discount) – pay-as-you-go –

      $3200/pay as you go – $2880/paying up-front – $3040/paying half up-front – the other half in 30 days
      THERE ARE NO REFUNDS – IF YOU DO NOT FINISH THE PROGRAM IN THIS SEASON THAN YOU MAY CARRY OVER TO THE
      FOLLOWING SEASON HALF OF WHAT IS LEFT –

      WE DO NOT START PROGRAMS AFTER JULY 30TH OF ANY SEASON AS WE WANT TO BE FAIR IN GIVING A STUDENT TIME TO
      GET THEIR JUMPS IN AND FINISH A PROGRAM AN GET THEIR ‘A’ LICENSE

    How much dose it cost

  26. Jackie Opperman

    Hi I was wondering if you have 1-2 openings available for August 29 for tandem style? It will be my 50th birthday and is on my bucket list.

  27. Tegan Kohl

    How much would the cost be for two people, both adults, to do three jumps??

    • two (2) people – must be 18 years of age or older – 200 pounds or less –
      the cost would be $200/per person cash discount or $210/per person no cash discount MC/Visa/Debt Card
      So, you would be looking at about: 6 x $200.00 = $1200.00/ total cost cash discount or 6 x $210.00 = $ 1260.00/total cost no cash discount MC/Visa/Debt Card

    • two (2) people 200 pounds or less:
      1st jump
      $200/per person cash discount x 2 = $400.00/total
      $210.per person no cash discount x 2 = $420.00/total (MC/Visa/Debt Card)

      2nd Jump
      $190.00/per person cash discount x 2 = $380.00/total
      $200.00per person no cash discount x 2 = $400.00/total (MC/Visa/Debt Card)

      3rd Jump
      $180.00/per person cash discount x 2 = $360.00/total
      $190.00/per person no cash discount x 2 = $380.00/total (MC/Visa/Debt Card

  28. Rayne

    When do u stop jumps for the year?

  29. Hey Bill,

    That’s quite a history in the sport and possibly the longest I have been aware of. I think Sir David Sterling or Icarus are the only two men to out-do you.

    Been jumping myself on and off since 1992 (ex-military and then sports jumping). Been through the static line and AFF system of both military and civilian schools. Just started a blog called – extremesportsblogger.com – and intend on travelling to every DZ in UK, Europe and America and blogging about the experience. Also a keen scuba diver and skier so the blog will kinda encompass as many extreme sports as possible. Hope to see you on my travels and give your DZ a write up.

    Blue skies.

  31. Shannon Graves

    i have been wanting to do a tandem jump for as many years as the first time I heard that Pres. George H. W. Bush made his first 70ish Birthday tandem jump. I thought, if he can do it at his age, I can do it at mine! I just need to know a few times first: do I need reservations if I want to jump this Saturday, the 5th of September, do I need to do any pre-jump preparations before Saturday; do we get a picture with the jump & finally, what is the cost for a tandem jump? I’m not sure that I will be the only one jumping, my 18 year old son may also jump. That’s why the cost is so important to me. Do you offer a discount of any kind for more than one jumper from a family? I appreciate your willingness to take questions AND Comments about the Experiences of your “New Friends,” of which I hope to become.
    Here’s to those CLEAR SKIES,
    Shannon Graves

    • Sorry, just received this message – you were inquiring about 5 September – but yes you do need a reservation to Tandem Skydive – you train/jump same day weather permitting – cost is $200/per person cash discount or 210/per person no cash discount…

  32. amanda young

    I am wondering if you will be open on October 31st? I have been fighting a lot of battles and I am still struggling. This will be my 40th birthday and I feel if I can conquer this I can pull myself up out of the dirt once again. And finally have some peace and life back in me!

  33. Denise Wahlberg

    Dear Donna, Bill and JR. you guys ROCK ! my brother in law and I just got back from our adventure and had the most awesome of times.
