I had a blast. It was an amazing experience that i want to do again!

Start Skydiving Rated 5 by: MelAnderson on 2016-05-02

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!

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!

The most amazing endeavor ive ever acvomplished

Start Skydiving Rated 5 by: jollinger on 2016-04-19

Pros: Totally professional and life changing.
Cons: Can't think of any.

For my first jump, it was the most exhilarating, awesome, and incredible experience I've ever done. Lonnie Kirk made it the most enjoyable experience. This being a bucket list item, I can say with all honesty that Lonnie Kirk and the rest of the staff made it an experience I will never forget. Definitely a life changing experience, and I will most certainly do this again. I can't thank Josh Wolaver, Lonnie Kirk, and all the rest for maki,g this come true.
