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 startskydiving.com 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 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.

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...

I went to Canton Airsports to get a couple of jumps. I met a friend there that I had not seen in almost 30 years. They were great to us. After a conversation with the TM he let me swoop and dock on he and my friend, that was awesome. The DZ LZ is HUGE and with nice views from altitude and to top it all off they had FastTrax's Caravan there. Woo Hoo. Check them out you will not be sorry.

Been hanging out at this DZ for a couple years and even when I hadn't jumped yet the staff and jumpers made me feel as if I had been around for years. I got to do a tandem out of a king air with many people I have come to care a great deal about. They made the experience one I will never forget as long as I live. I plan to continue skydiving, taking it to the next level - I can't wait to see my new "family" again!

Canton Air Sports is one of the best DZ's I've ever been to. The staff is exceptional and always willing to help you with anything you need. The Chief Instructor and Assistant Chief Instructors out there are by far the best skydivers I've ever met. It's probably the most friendly DZ around with the best prices for your student progression. I would have to say if you're looking to make your first skydive or you're a seasoned skydiver this place is for you...

I have been jumping at Canton Airsports for about three years and I can honestly say what a fun dropzone it is. You will never have a problem getting in contact with them, if the answering machine does come on, just leave a message and the owner usually calls you back within minutes.

When I arrived @ the dz without gear, jumpers & staff were extremely helpful & willing to put together gear for me to jump. The people were so inviting, friendly, and it was a very comfortable/relaxing atmosphere.

A HUGE open area to land in -- only regrets were that there wasn't much action -- but HEY I'm not a turbine snob :)

If you're a pond swooper you will *LOVE* this pond!! it's an ideal size with a majority of outs ...EnJoY!

I was working not too far from 3 different DZ's. Guess who answered the phone? Not the others. Yes it is still winter and I know a lot of people are still down south. Today was a warm, blue sky day and all I could think about at work was jumping and (Aerohio) was only 15 miles from where I was. I guess it's still too cold for them, No one answered the phone. The last time I tried to get ahold of them they took 5 days to get back with me. 5 DAYS!!! I called canton and they answered with a, "hang on, let me shut this plane down" (just got off of a jump run) I got in my van and started out there. I did only get one jump in before it got all dark and cold out, but I still got a jump. I think from now on I'll tell anyone if they are in this area to go to Canton Air Sports.. I do not want to say anything bad about somewhere I have not been but I will say I had a great time at this dropzone.
