Great for 1st time jumpers!

Skydive Kentucky - Elizabethtown Rated 4 by: CourtPehl on 2014-06-23

Pros: Amazingly thorough instructors and helpful, friendly staff all around
Cons: None!

Everyone at Skydive Kentucky was involved with me and my jump from the time I got there until the time I left. I felt very comfortable and really enjoyed chatting with the staff. They say fun is first, but I would contest that with saying they put your safety first! All staff stayed aware of conditions and made it clear we wouldn't be jumping if the weather was not optimal. My instructor was thorough from start to finish and I had the greatest time. Can't wait to go back!

Skydive Kentucky - Elizabethtown Rated 5 by: gritstonediva on 2013-10-10

Pros: friendly, fun atmosphere, fun jumps to be had
Cons: none

simply the most fun DZ in years, like jumping back in the day, but safely with good kit.
As a Brit abroad I thought it' a bit awkward, to my delight the opposite was true, Jim and all the crew made me feel welcome, were keen to get me on loads with a selection of kit to rent.
I arrived at about 3.30pm, and still got 3 jumps in before sunset at 7.
if you're in Kentucky go visit big Jim, honestly you'll not find a friendlier DZ in the Northern Hemisphere.

Skydive Kentucky - Elizabethtown Rated 5 by: cbarcusrn on 2013-03-14

Pros: Very friendly knowledgeable staff
Cons: Battery was dead on my wrist camera. However, I still got video from the camera man.

I had an awesome time checking off my bucket list. From the moment I walked in the door the staff was warm, friendly, and full of fun. Don't get me wrong, safety was priority. The staff went over all of the hand gestures untill "I got it". They made me feel like I was part of the team even though it was my first jump. I had the time of my life. I would highly recommend SkydiveKY to everyone.

Skydive Kentucky - Elizabethtown Rated 5 by: Kmwill6 on 2012-12-09

Pros: Atmosphere, coaches, instructors ,and attitude are awesome.
Cons: Down to one plane (182). The (206) is gone for winter.

Great place to for up jumpers or first timers. There's no bumping for tandems. First come first server. The secretary (boss lady haha). Couldn't be sweater and makes you feel right at home. The instructors and coaches are great. The owner is always there insisting on the greatest level of safety and fun. Try them out.

Wonderful atmosphere!

Skydive Kentucky - Elizabethtown Rated 5 by: Nikki82 on 2012-08-28

Pros: Extremely professional and exctied to see ANYONE skydive!
Cons: Smaller facility, might have to have a little patients sometimes for delays, but they will keep you entertained while yo

I felt safe knowing that most of the coaches and instructors have served in some branch of the service. They emphasise the safety precautions, but they manage to keep a strong positive feel. They are very energizing and welcoming. If you decide to take any of their courses, plan on adopting a new family. They become your parents, brothers and sisters. I think it's because you KNOW that they care about you.
