Padgham Field has active skydiving operations at the field. There is a small skydiving club operating on Saturdays and a commercial operation, Skydive Inc., that operates as Skydive Allegan and jumps on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesday evenings, and throughout the week on occasion. These operations typically put skydivers over the north center of the field and land in the field area between the T-hangars.
Experienced skydivers normally exit the aircraft from an altitude of 10,000' AGL and will freefall to approximately 2,500' AGL before deploying their canopies. Skydive Inc.'s Skydive Allegan Tandem Skydivers will normally exit the aircraft from an altitude of 10,000' AGL and will free fall to approximately 4,500' AGL before deploying their canopies. During skydiving operations, Padgham Field will potentially have skydiving canopy traffic in a small pattern from 4,500' AGL to the ground.
Skydive aircraft are in constant communication with Grand Rapids Approach and will give notices via local frequencies as to skydiver jump status.
