This was my first time skydiving, and I had an absolute blast! Everyone from the front desk staff to the instructors to the pilot were friendly and made me excited to jump! I look forward to coming back soon.

This was a great experience. I highly recommend. Lonnie Kirk was my instructor and he was absolutely perfect. His experience was evident and that made me feel very safe and comfortable. I will be back!

Being able to realize and share a wheelchair bound friends dream with him was the ultimate experience. The care, compassion and dignity shown to him was phenomenal. Appreciate, so much, Start Skydiving for giving us this opportunity and making a dream come true.

What an amazing outfit. Professional, efficient, you feel safe the second you get there. Highly recommended, esp. for first jump. You notice the team and crews focus and concentration from the start. My tandem instructor Lonnie was amazing. From instilling confidence, teaching you, explaining what to expect, all blended with anxiety reducing humor. They are a perfect blend of customer service, technical experts, and therapists. This is not a run of the mill dropzone. I can see why they are 5 star and number 1. Willl definitely be back – after my heart rate returns to normal.

This was the most exhilarating experience. I have never experienced anything like this before. This was my first jump and ALEX was awesome. I had no fear or nerves at all. They were calm and told me what to do and what would happen. The free-fall was amazing and parachuting was so enjoyable. Landing was smooth and I can not wait to do this again. My sister did it with me and has jumped a few places and she said none compare. Did I mention the owners, staff and owners were fabulous? Everyone has to do this at Start Diving.

I had Nick as my instructor and throughout the entire class he was very helpful, not only group wise but one on one help.
Stuff I struggled with he made sure to make me go over and over and over not only on the ground but in the air as well. I never write reviews for anybody or anything. I had a terrific experience and passed my Cat-A and can't wait to get back to it and critique every problem I had with the assistance of all the great instructors at StartSkydiving

Went here through an Ohio State course. Nick E and Casey M were great instructors and I can't thank Bud enough for teaching the class at OSU. Great experience.

I really enjoyed my time here. It was my first time sky diving so I was a little nervous to go but my instructor Larry C made me feel very relaxed. He taught me a lot about sky diving and talked me through the whole process. The rest of the staff I interacted with was also very nice. They took group pictures of me and my friends without hesitancy. They also kept us entertained on the way up in the plane which helped me to not get nervous.
