Welcoming


Mile High Parachuting Rated 4 by: bjumpz on 2010-11-22

Pros: Welcoming and enjoyable to hang out at
Cons: Jump planes aren't first class

Took all my courses here, everything went great, instructors are really good in that they are friendly, knowledgable, helpful and highly experienced. Great place to hang out after a day of jumping, the campfire burns when the weather is right. At one point it seemed I was getting bumped for tandems a lot, when I 1st started jumping I found this frustrating because I just wanted to jump! I believe this has changed as there is generally more than one plane running on the weekends these days. My new gear did get stained from duct tape in the yellow plane, this was certainly not pleasing.. However the jump planes are not 1st class seating jets so things can happen, this goes for all dz's.

After being injured and off jumping for 1.5yrs I felt comfortable getting back in the air at Mile High and was pleasantly welcomed back to the air. Thanks Mile High!

Friendly/knowledgeable staff, quick lift turn around, well managed, good gear selection. This DZ has great scenery while in free fall with water in close proximity. I recommend it for a visit or to make your home DZ!

Everyone at Mile High was awesome. We went as a group of 7 and we all had a blast! I am going back in the spring for my A License. Videos were amazing, msg me and I'll share with you. This is where you want to go if you are leery about trying it, they are very comforting, and casual. I'll update my review after my PFF course in the spring. Thanks so much Mile High and Adrenaline Tandem!


**Spring Edit**
Hey again,
Just finished my first 3 IAD jumps this weekend, starting PFF this coming weekend. I had a blast. All I can say is everyone is exceedingly friendly. Everyone is joking around and laughing and just having a great time. I realize now why skydiving is not just jumping from planes, it's a whole new social activity.

As for the jumps, I felt completely confident in jumping. I took the course last weekend, and before jumping, they reviewed what I remembered and then we were off. All 3 jumps went great, and the best part...All 3 jumps were stand-ups in no wind conditions.

With Mile High, you have nothing to worry about, simple as that!

Thanks Mile High!

This DZ is a great place to learn how to skydive and last year they added Tandem and PFF in addition to the IAD program. If you interested in Skydiving in the Ottawa area this is the place to go!

Mile High rates high


Mile High Parachuting Rated 5 by: darthgary on 2003-09-17

Pros: Great people, great safety oriented first jump course
Cons: none

This place makes you want to go back for more. The first jump course was first class, and very safety oriented. Good pilots, instructors and landing area.
