NEVER use this place

Canton Air Sports Rated 1 by: andreabyers on 2013-07-17

Pros: awsome skydive experience
Cons: very unprfessional, rude and liers (Rodger the owner)

I surprised my husband with an adventure of a lifetime...skydiving! Drove 3 1/2 hours to get to Canton Air Sports.. my husband jumped and boy did he have fun. Afterwards, Rodger the owner/pilot said the video guy who does the videos was not there that day and it would be mailed to us. Mind you the day before I spoke to Rodger who said we can pick our own music to the video and the cost is $80.00. So, we said ok, paid for the video and left. 2 weeks went by and no video. Called Rodger who said the video was mailed out...1 more week went by still no video. Called Rodger, said he will check on it and if I don't get the video by the following Monday to call back. Monday came WEEK 3 now. I waited til wednesday to call back. Spoke to Rodger who told me he doesn't understand why I'm not getting the videos and assured me he would send a third video priority mail. I said no, don't mail it, I'll send my husband up there to pick it up personally. Now Rodger says, ehhhhhhh.....we don't have you video. Cant find it. So you have been lying to me for 3 weeks leading me on...all he can say is I'm sorry. Rodger lied to me over and over again. Company is shady and run very unprofesionally. Video guy didn't care either about our experience. I would NOT recommend this company to anyone. Now my husband does not have the video to show friends and family and we don't have another $300 to jump again. Canton Air Sports, you are all pathetic!

After having a terrible experience at we went to Canton Air Sports. Our experience was 100x better! The staff was so friendly and did everything they can to get you in the airplane as quickly as possible! Definitely recommend going here over Middletown anyday!

great dz whether its your first jump or one of many

Canton Air Sports Rated 5 by: apt3studiodiver on 2009-09-16

Pros: awesome scenery, great people, fun dropzone
Cons: wintertime in ohio

Great Ohio drop zone, with amazing scenery from altitude. Has multiple aircraft to choose from most days. Two 182's, 206, and a Caravan. 206 and Caravan is available whenever Team Fasttrax isn't using it, which is most weekends and sometimes during the week. Just check their website or call for availability. That caravan is an AWESOME ride up. Staff is proficient in many different disciplines so even if you are experienced it is a great place to get more experience. If you are new to the sport its a great place to take your first steps. The only thing that prevented me from jumping more loads is my own packing speed.

I wasted 10 hours haning around the drop zone.

Canton Air Sports Rated 1 by: tron7 on 2009-08-31

Pros: Big landing area.
Cons: Fun jumper have the lowest priority

It seems that the only thing they care about is money. We were at the drop zone for 10h and some of us could finally do one jump before dusk! Admittedly the weather wasn't that good, but they had at least 10 loads of tandems. Since they are paying more money they have a higher priority than a fun jumper. So even if they arrived 6 hours after us they go to jump before us. So if you are a fun jumper, do not go here. It is just a waste of time: hanging around the drop zone...
