    What to Expect
    Participants should arrive at their scheduled time, there is no need to be early but please don't be late.  Upon arrival, you will check in with our front desk, verify your waiver and complete any payments if necessary.  You will then attend a short class on the do's and dont's of skydiving, taught by an experienced skydiving instructor (all of our instructors have thousands of safe skydives).  You will gear-up for the skydive and be paired with a professional instructor, who will guide you through loading in the aircraft, the climb to altitude, preparing for the jump, freefall, parachute flight, and landing.  Your instructor will be with you throughout the process and will help you in every way, all the while taking video and pictures of the experience.  You will be afforded the opportunity to help steer the parachute, if desired, during the flight.  After landing in front of your friends and family, you will be guided off the field and geared-down.  Your pictures/video are emailed to you within 24 hours, or if you didn't purchase them ahead of time, you can buy them online.

    What an amazing experience done with the best professionals! They made sure all of us knew what to do. I felt very safe with their professionals and had a great time. Definitely would recommend doing this at least once in your lifetime.

    Great first sky dive experience! What a rush! I thought the add on's were a bit pricey. $68 for download pictures seems to be too much. Even more for the videos. Plus they encourage you to tip your instructor. Be ready to spend some cash.More

    Jim, thanks for the review. Actually most companies charge $75 or more for just one product... we are the lowest prices in the Chicago area. Skydiving, like any service business (restaurants, etc...) use tipping to provide income for staff, so we are sorry that it...More
