Start Skydiving is the #1 RANKED Drop-Zone IN THE WORLD! It's where Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky go to skydive!
I have been skydiving 3 times, but this was my first time at Start Skydiving. My tandem instructor Lonnie made this one the best by far! I will never go anywhere else if I can help it and will ALWAYS request Lonnie. Also, I love how this place got us in and out. I know the weather has a little bit to do with that but my previous experiences included sitting for 4-6 hours. I love Start Skydiving!
I believe Lonnie, my tandem instructor, made the experience so awesome and memorable! He was detailed in safety and did verbal rechecks often- which made me feel safe. He was professional, aware, caring, sensitive, and light-hearted. He answered all my questions and was always checking on me to see if I was o.k. To be above the clouds and view the magnificence of God's world is impossible to put into words! To feel the air force on my face- invisible and yet thankfully ever present is an amazing experience. I believe that if you choose to try sky diving, choose to be centered in the experience and tandem with Lonnie Kirk!
LOVE LOVE LOVED THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!!! It was my first time jumping and my tandem partner was Mat Green. He was the best. He calmed me down and was very laid back. Great partner! Thank you so much! The plane ride to the top was the scariest part. Once the door opened, I was ready. Mat was very good at keeping me aware of what would happen and was happening! I opted to have the videographer. Highly recommend. I had pics and a vid! Loved them! Such a great job! We went in October and it was busy even for a chillier day! Highly recommend! Thank you guys!!!!!!!!!!!
I did my first AFF skydive today and it was amazing. I am glad that I went to Start Skydiving. My instructors John and Emily were amazing and really helpful. They walked me through every step and boosted my confidence. One of my other instructors, Bud, did an awesome job at teaching us and was a great help. He made sure that everyone felt confident and prepared. If I could, I'd give 10 stars. I had a great time and definitely one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I would definitely love to go back and do more jumps.
I pass a couple of drop zones from Fort Wayne, IN to come to Middletown because I feel the safety, quality of teaching and equipment, and professionalism are worth it. Your team has proven my loyalty absolutely right.
