Pros: Everything!!!
Cons: its in Ohio.. and im in NC

Went to StartSkydiving this past weekend. It was the most incredible experience Ive ever had!... Me and my Fiancé came with a military group for Armed forces day. Hereos at Home. Every single person was the most professional, kind and understanding person we could have met. We had amputees, and people who have never jumped before... everything was soo easy, and easy to understand. We were made to feel soo welcome and appreciated!.. .cant say enough for the entire team! THANK YOU

Pros: I felt very safe, everyone was very knowledgeable
Cons: Don't have any

I felt safe and in very good hands with Lonnie Kirk. His excited and happy nature dispelled any nerves I might of had in the begining of this experience. It was exceedingly apparent that everyone was truly knowledgeable and well versed in their individual and collective tasks. I had an extraordinary day and will be coming back for a return dive. Thank you for the experience and safty!

Guts over Fear

Start Skydiving Rated 5 by: AGRTreehouse on 2016-04-27

Pros: A rush that is priceless
Cons: Ahhh...

It was my 30th birthday, I was alone because no one with go with me. It was my bucket list, I'm not going to not do something if no one else will with me. I was nervous, had anxiety, my mind was spinning & quite. Everyone was very professional, energetic & showed passion for what they are doing. I'm going to skydive again with StartSkydiving!
