The staff at Start Skydiving were all helpful, friendly and very encouraging. Our daughter is physically challenged so she did a tandem jump. She was helped into the jumpsuit, given instructions and loaded into the plane. They helped her fulfill her dream of finally skydiving!! It was a great experience for all of us!!

Start Skydiving is Amazing!!! This was my first jump and everyone was super friendly and did a great job of calming the nerves. Their energy is so confident and infectious. My tandem instructor Tim was super friendly and made me feel safe and confident in his abilities. I trusted him completely!! I even got to meet the owner John who was very gracious with his time. While it appears that everyone who works at Start Skydiving is having a great time, they were very professional and safety was always first! Both of my kids were there to watch me jump and they are both now wanting to do it themselves. I would recommend Start Skydiving to anyone who asks about my experience as I don't think anyone could have done it better than Start Skydiving. We will definitely be back.

Wow - great experience, largely because of the great operation and people that work there. I felt FULLY CONFIDENT and was able to enjoy the jump with no fears or worries. It was a well organized "tight ship" with quality facilities, equipment and most importantly very professional people. My Tandem jump partner Stephen Smith was great - a clear communicator that instilled the confidence of his 1,000s of jumps - I will ask for him again by name. Scott "Gila" Stilwell was my videographer and was a lot of fun as well as taking great video and photos - the editing was fast and well done. Highly recommend this outfit and these folks!
