After a 13 year layoff from the sport, I was looking to get my "knees in the breeze" once again. Alot had changed during my layoff but from the point I arrived, everyone was great. Staff was friendly and they got me back up to speed that same day. A few jumps later and I was jumping out of a KingAir, something I had only prev been able to do at a large boogie. Now it's an everyday occurance.

They have very poor customer service. They are completely unwilling to work with customers. I'm very disappointed in their level of professionalism. I scheduled my first jump with them and put my deposit down. It snowed the day of the jump, so there was no jump, and they refused to return my deposit. I would not recommend this institution to anyone and they have ruined my first jumping experience in Kansas City. There are better places to jump than this facility.

Skydive Kansas City is a great DZ! They will teach you as much as you want to know at your own pace. Lots of one on one training on everything you could want to be trained on. They'll explain everything step by step and be patient while doing so. After jumping here I see no need to go anywhere else.

Skydive Kansas City is where I learned to skydive and has been my home everysince. The oweners are great the operation has grown from a single cessna DZ to 3. The future facility that is being planned will be state of the art with over 8000 sq.ft of hanger space. Skydive Kansas City strives to offer the most modern and advanced student gear offered by the industry and has one of the best saftey records in the country.
