start skydiving ohio, skydive ohioThe Lowest Skydiving Prices Around!

Start Skydiving has larger and faster aircraft, state of the art equipment, sixty professional instructors, and better pricing! Why go anywhere else?

  • Why jump from a plane that can only hold four passengers (two tandems), when you can jump from our aircraft that can hold over 20 jumpers?
  • Why spend 30 minutes cramped in a small, loud piston plane, when you can spend 15 minutes in one of our large, fast turbine-engine aircraft?
  • Why jump from 9,000 feet, when you can jump from as high as 14,000 feet MSL?
  • Why pay more and get less, when you can pay less and get so much more?!
