Fun, Safe, what more could you want?

Gold Coast Skydivers Rated 5 by: bchained83 on 2015-08-31

Pros: Great people, lots of fun
Cons: None

I have been there twice now tandem jump on both trips. Brought 4 people with me first trip and just me and the Girl friend on second trip.

Was very pleased both times I have been, they go out of their way to make sure everything is kept fun and upbeat while making sure you know what to expect and do. My girl was grinning like a crazy woman after she landed and cant wait to jump again.

Great staff, always alot of people there with lots of fun and hustling around.

AFF Student

Gold Coast Skydivers Rated 5 by: madbomber39465 on 2015-04-06

Pros: Great staff, great location, very safety conscious and friendly!
Cons: None so far.

I decided to check out Gold Coast Skydivers since it is close to my home, about 25 minutes away. I first contacted the staff through Facebook and they pointed me in the right direction. I made an appointment for the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Program and showed up at the appointed time. Brian was our first instructor of the day. He was both knowledgeable and patient with us (there were 3 AFF students that morning). Brian walked us through the class material and ensured that all of our questions were fully answered. Once we completed our classroom instruction and practical exercises, Phil took over and walked us through aircraft procedures and safety. He walked us through a proper aircraft exit and reiterated safety and cut away procedures. After we reviewed all of the material, Karen took over and did a last second check to ensure that each of us understood instructor hand signals, proper arching, safety, and cut away procedures. Once Karen was satisfied, we were ready to go. Phil and Eric were the two instructors that jumped with me. Both were friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and had a sense of humor. I felt very safe in their hands. We boarded the aircraft, Phil walked me through various procedures, and once we reached altitude, I took up my position and exited the aircraft. Both Phil and Eric were by my side, constantly giving me instruction and feedback. Once on the ground (I ended up in the cow pasture across from the airfield), Phil came and got me and we walked back to the building. The three of us reviewed my jump from start to finish and I was cleared for Level II. All in all, it was a very positive experience. The entire staff is welcoming, the atmosphere is fun, and I really enjoyed the entire day. I will be heading back this weekend to continue with the program!

Pros: Great folks and awesome vibe!

Back in the saddle again after 10 years and everyone was fantastic! Made me feel comfortable and at home. Knowledgeable and helpful. Laid back, but professional. Good landing area and fair weather. A must go!

Gold Coast is focused on skydivers

Gold Coast Skydivers Rated 5 by: racassella on 2014-01-25

Pros: Accessible and inexpensive.
Cons: None.

Gold Coast has a great location and the staff is focused on providing skydivers with the best possible experience. Within an hour of arriving -- having never jumped there before -- I was getting out of the Super Otter. Leanne Igo is a first-class DZO.
