My first skydive

Fly Free Skydiving Rated 5 by: ladyluck-ar on 2016-09-27

Pros: Experienced Friendly People
Cons: None

I must say this absolutely the best place for me to go for my first jump. Jen and Tony are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Not to mention a ton of fun. They made my experience the best ever.
I laughed and smiled the entire time. Jen done the outside video. I highly recommend you do this. She flies up to you in the free fall and grab hands for the circle. The video is totally outstanding job Jen does. Tony was an absolute blast. He relaxes you and puts you at ease. I recommend you also do his video. It was also outstanding. Thanks Jen and Tony for making my birthday extremely special! I posted your 4 videos on FB and 7 people called wanting to skydive. Of course they want both of you to do theirs too! They absolutely loved your videos! Thanks again Jen and Tony!!!

City Skydiving!

Fly Free Skydiving Rated 5 by: Lujako on 2015-03-26

Pros: Friendly DZ & Fun DZOs
Cons: Cessna DZ

Jen and Josh are awesome DZOs. If I had to pay per answer, I would have to cut my jumps in half.

Great place to call "home".

Need to learn to pack? Jen will teach you!

Jumping over the Mississippi is very cool!

1st Tandem Dive

Fly Free Skydiving Rated 5 by: brat1980 on 2014-04-06

Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing!

Just a quick "THANK YOU" to the whole staff at Fly Free Skydiving, you all were more than wonderful! I now know why you all truly love your jobs! I have wanted to skydive for years, and today I finally had the opportunity to mark it off my bucket list because of all of you! Thank you so, so, so much Shawn (my tandem), Terry (friend's tandem), Shannon (pilot), Jen and Josh (owners), today would have not been possible without all of you! I will highly recommend Fly Free Skydiving to any and all! I will wear my shirt and advertise as often as possible! I hope to make it back sooner than later to get that rush and taste of pure adrenaline! ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!

Pros: Very Professional concerning safety
Cons: none

Made my first skydive as a IAD and had a great time. The training before the jump was professional and thorough. The complete staff is easy to work with. Stop by when the area and enjoy the atmosphere.

Fly Free Skydiving Rated 4 by: billjones on 2010-10-17

Pros: Overall it was fun
Cons: Noise level of the plane.

After my hearing came back I guess I enjoyed the experience.
I can only imagine how the people in the area feel about that roaring plane flying over their homes all day. Can't you find a different muffler or something to lower the noise?
