A big skydiving operation with the feel of a small DZ

I'm impressed on how such a young DZ has bread a team that works so well. Up jumpers and staff were always trying their best to help, teach and make my stay as enjoyable as possible.

They began operations just a few months ago, but they have managed to get a healthy group of regulars. If for some reason you find yourself going for a solo jump, think again, as soon as your name is on the manifest you are sure to have someone to jump with. If you are there, you are part of the family.

I went there to get my coach rating. I expected to go through the IRM and do my evaluations and stop at that. When the course was over, I had been taught much more than just the necessary and felt absolutely confident I had all the skills and knowledge required. Their goal is to make you the best and not just getting certified.

My only CON is the lack of a place to get food right there, but Lebanon is just a short drive away.

This “small” DZ is rapidly becoming “the” place.

As soon as I showed up, the staff made me feel at home. The facilities are nice and the place is constantly growing.

Team Fastrax is located there and they are very helpful with questions, even offering to make a jump or two with someone who is learning new skills.

I recommend this place to anyone and will definately be back.

This dropzone is new, but already it has taken off. Fastrax is always willing to help out any team or jumper reguardless of level. The student gear is brand new and top of the line! Huge Landing field of nice green sod and a separate high performance landing area. On site USPA Course Director for those aspiring instructors. Finally a dropzone that has it right from the start!

I am "newer" skydiver with just over 100 jumps but I have seen 9 different DZ's. Start Skydiving stands out! It will provide any level of skydiver with a sense that he/she belongs there. Everything there is top-notch, equipment, tech stuff, teachers, hanger, etc. The staff and people around the DZ are amazing. If you want to get a lot of jumping in, this is the place to be.
Blue Skies....Cheers

World Class Coaching for Pennies

Even though Start Skydiving is a new DZ, I believe it is fast becoming "The place to be" in the tri-state area (Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana) and surrounding states. World class coaching by Team Fastrax, a fast-climbing Otter, and owners who believe in education and keeping up with the times and technology have already sold me on the place.

The huge landing area and beautiful Southern Ohio landscape make every jump enjoyable and memorable. Of course, making a jump with the Fastrax 4-way team made one of this writer's recent visits even more memorable! Where else can you go in this area and receive world class coaching? Answer: no where!

Come join Start Skydiving for a weekend of skydiving fun, relaxation, and the best nicest group of jumpers you could ever imagine.
