Pretty awesome experience

Skydive Maryland Ridgely Rated 4 by: sarahh729 on 2011-08-16

Pros: John and Bob were great teachers
Cons: Still haven't received our hand cam videos and it's been over two weeks

Overall, my group had a really great time. John and Bob were great instructors and awesome to tandem jump with. Arnold was a good teacher and overall nice guy.

The only negative comment I have is we all paid for hand cam videos which were supposed to be given to us the day of (July 31). Then, they were promised to be delivered that same week to our homes. They didn't show up all week. I called many times over the past few weeks and when I finally talked to Lance a few weeks later, he said we'd receive videos at the end of that week. That was last week and we never did. We called him again and he said he still had to burn them onto dvds.

Other than this, the experience was great!

Awesome place to skydive

Skydive Maryland Ridgely Rated 5 by: dionkarlyn on 2011-05-10

Pros: Nice staff, views, everything!
Cons: I wish I could do this everyday

All I can say is WOW! One of the greatest days of my life!! This has been something I have wanted to do for a while, and I am so glad I chose Skydive Maryland. Shortly after I arrived for my 11:00 appointment, I was already in the air with my awesome instructor John. He made me feel very comfortable and his instructons were easy to understand (and he was hot!). I chose the hand cam video option and couldn't be happier. I probably watch it at least once a day! The staff were really nice and it had a really relaxing vibe, which is great when you are about to jump out of a airplane! This summer I plan on bringing out my whole family so we can jump together. GOOD JOB SKYDIVE MARYLAND! You guys rock :)

greatest place to learn and perform aerosports

Skydive Maryland Ridgely Rated 5 by: chilesjerry on 2011-04-14

Pros: the owners is hands-on, the pilots have training and everything under the sun
Cons: if there was any i didnt see it

I met Lance Linton he showed me some dvds of past jumps to get me familiarized with what I would be doing and trained me and everything stuck I didnt go up doubting anything would happen and my first jump was successful I now refer this place to family and friends and anyone that wants to try aerosports. Even if your experienced at it theres always something new to learn

Sick Jump! The Best

Skydive Maryland Ridgely Rated 5 by: funguy123 on 2011-04-13

Pros: Awesome
Cons: zero

I jumped with these dudes back in Sept and it was everything I wanted. The view of Baltimore form 10,000 feet up is sick! when we first jumped I was freaked(!) out but that all went away in a few seconds and it felt like was flying. they let me steer the chute and showed me the bay, the atlantic ocean and even b-more and annapolis. pretty cool to see from a parachute! the guys were super laid back and I was treated like I was a long lost friend. I'll be back to learn to jump!

general info

Skydive Maryland Ridgely Rated 4 by: kgb25 on 2011-02-04

Pros: none
Cons: none

This goes out to anyone in general regarding radar for other planes. 90% of small aircraft, such as the ones used in skydiving don't have radar to check for planes. It's called spotting, we look out the door to check our air space before we jump and broadcast to other aircraft in the area that jumpers are about to drop. it's a pilots responsiblitly to clear or not cross that airspace at that time. So don't comment on and give a DZ a bad review for something you know absolutely nothing about.
