My first jump was with my 3 sons, the youngest had just graduated from college and I had made my last tuition payment. It was time to celebrate that 13 years of college tuition had finally come to an end. Obviously the excitement of raising these 3 hasn't ended yet. I had Ray as my coach and he made this experience such a fabulous memory. He was right "you never forget your first jump"
Thanks for a great experience

Well my husband and I came to startskydiving with our friends for their 30th birthdays. We were both very nervous. Everyone made us feel very comfortable and safe! We are getting ready to book another jump for July we loved it so much. We are taking my mom and my husband's dad for their 60th birthdays. Thanks Michelle Gentry, please email notification to todd@startskydiving.com

Professional staff and local flyers that make one feel comfortable to ask questions. Everyone out there has a great love for the sport and are very encouraging and willing to coach, mentor or give blocks of instructions on various topics.

First tandem jump. Incredible experience for both my wife and I. Instructors, Lonnie K. and Gila, were fun, informative, helpful and professional. Photographer, Melanie, was personable, fun, and took awesome photos and video, making our first experience a great memory. We will be back!!

Skydiving was one of the most exhilarating things I have ever done. Everything about the experience was exciting. The people at Start Skydiving were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and made my experience the best possible. I would recommend this activity and this place for anyone seeking thrills!

This was a great experience. Dan, provided all details before we loaded the plane & eased any last minute fears. Once in the air, I was ready...good thing cause I was first person out. Freefalling was amazing & the view was spectacular. Can't wait to do it again!

FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING! On May 22, 2011 a group of us Kroger employees jumped out of a plane with Start Skydiving! It was so amazing! The employees are nice, and because we were there for about 7 hours (due to 2 weather delays) they offered to order food for us! I will be returning very soon! Thanks or everything! :) - Ashley Jackson

On June 4 my dad and I fulfilled a lifelong dream (me at 41, dad at 71!) of skydiving. We were both excited but extremely anxious - until we arrived at Start Skydiving in Middletown, Ohio. There were so many people preparing for jumps or practicing for shows - everyone from first timers like us to professionals. Our instructors were very friendly and, even though they must do this a dozen times a day, we felt they shared our excitement about jumping for the first time. I can't thank you enough for such a fantastic experience. We will be back!

It was the most amazing thing I've ever done. My Handycam video was awesome and my instructor let me fly the canopy which was awesome. I definitely want to come back and do this again many times!

Skydiving has been by far the most thrilling experience in my entire life! Everyone should try it... even if they're scared. I'm defiantly going back to start skydiving!

This review is about my first jump which I did for my birthday and all I have to say is I don't think it could have been any better. I loved it so much I'm already planned on returning to jump again.

I really liked this dropzone. I had done one tandem jump before and this facility was much larger and had a lot more instructors. My instructor, Jonathan, even spent about a half hour after my jump telling me how to go about advancing in the sport. It was almost like a mini class. I definitely recommend this place.

I woke up one day with the idea to jump out of a plane after doing some shopping around I came across Start Skydiving . com and decided to go with them. After hearing so many good things about them I felt safe. Upon Arriving at start skydiving I was welcomed by everyone who passed me, and was treated like a king. Every one there is someone that I picture myself being good friends with. Very professional and easy to talk to which made this experience amazing. It was very important to me to be able to ask questions without feeling stupid while having a good time. My Tandem Jumper Lonnie was the best. He was very direct and concise with his instructions and assured me of the quality of my gear. The free fall was the best thing that I have ever done in my whole life and the glide to earth was second only to the free fall. I loved every moment of this experience and would only recommend StartSkydiving.com as the place to do it. when letting someone else take your life into their hands you have to trust the best and from my experience that is what they are THE BEST!

Thanks For The FALL!

1st time jumper who will be back again very soon to this location to pursue further skydiving licenses. The staff was outgoing, caring, and willing to answer anything thrown their way. The jump itself was out of this world & I look forward to future skydiving adventures, especially at this location! Charlie Sasser

Went with 3 of my buddies, all 1st timers, and all 4 of us absolutely loved it! All 4 of us got videos/pictures & I'll say they were well worth the price. It was truly something I'll never forget & I thank "treeman" for being a kick ass tandem instructor! 3 of us are actually heading back to do it again this upcoming weekend & are planning on pursuing our jumping licenses!

This was my first skydiving experience and it was great. The workers there were friendly and would help with anything you had questions on. The dive itself was better then I could imagine. I will be going back very soon. Evan Short

This was my first time skydiving and it was the best experience I've had. It was totally different than what I expected mainly because the instructors were interested and excited for their jumpers but still made sure everything was done right and that you felt at ease. Getting to walk off the back of the plane was a huge bonus! I'm definitely coming back and getting video the next time!
