I did my first ever tandem skydive July 13, 2016 at Start Skydiving, and it was by far the BEST experience of my life!!! I absolutely loved the actual skydiving part, and the crew at Start Skydiving was a major part of that. My instructor was Lonnie Kirk, and he was super calm, which kept me at ease, and I was able to trust him completely. He took excellent care of me before, during, and after my jump, gave precise and easy instructions, very professional, clearly an expert skydiver with almost 9,000 jumps under his belt, and he got me safely to the ground! He was also super fun and took some awesome photographs for me! Overall, I can't say enough how incredible my first experience with skydiving was, and I can't wait to do it again!! HUGE THANKS to Lonnie and the whole Start Skydiving team!!!!

My boyfriend and I just went yesterday! It was the most exciting thing I have ever done! My instructor Lonnie was awesome! I was a bit nervous going up, but once it was time to jump I was comfortable doing it. I really liked that they make the experience unique for you even though they do it all the time. He even took the time to even tell me to breath in and out before jumping. It's the little things that help when doing something extreme like that! I would do it again, it was SO much fun!

I absolutely loved my first tandem skydiving experience! Even though we had to reschedule quite a few times due to the weather, it was definitely worth the wait. The staff was very courteous and answered all of our questions. They truly do everything in their power to make your experience memorable and stress free. My instructor, Dan was the best! Can’t wait to jump again!

I absolutely loved skydiving here! I jumped for my first time in June and loved it! The instructors were all so nice and funny. They definitely help to calm my nerves, along with the Frank Sinatra that they played in the plane on the way up haha. I loved the jump and the whole experience there so much that I bought a second jump (even though it is 45 minutes away from where I am staying, I don't have a car, and I'm only in Ohio for a short period of time this summer. I found a different friend to go with me for my second jump (yesterday) and he loved it so much that he bought a second jump for himself! I would absolutely skydive here again, maybe the next time I'm in Ohio. For now, thank you to the awesome instructors (mine were Phil and Steve) at Start Skydiving!

Took my girlfriend to Start so she could knock skydiving off her bucket list. She was a little scared of the whole idea prior to the day of the jump, and the tandem instructor did nothing to ease her tension. When she asked the instructor how many jumps he had done previously, his response was "This is my first time!" and never gave her a serious reply. The camera man was a little older than the young instructors, and definitely more professional. I added a star to this review just for him. With this being my third time and third place doing a tandem jump, I can tell you, there are much better places that take the sport more professionally. This place is in the business to get people doing tandem jumps, and it seems not much more. Once we were back on the ground the instructors were quick to move to their next customer and be done with us. If you are doing this for your first time, and are a little nervous, I'd look elsewhere to skydive. Another thing that was concerning to see was each instructor doing a breathalyzer test at the beginning of the day. I'm not sure if this is a regulatory or insurance requirement. But they definitely didn't do this in a private fashion. Do they have a problem with their staff showing up for work drunk?

My instructor Lonnie was awesome. He talked me through everything and made it a blast. It was my first time and I am already planning on going back in July. If you ever have the chance to skydive, I highly suggest going to start skydiving, I promise you will not regret it. Everybody there is so friendly and ready to answer any questions you have. Thank you Lonnie for my first skydiving experience.

My instructor Lonnie gave me so much confidence and assurance that I was comfortable throughout this whole experience. Lonnie calmed my nerves talking to me onboard the jump plane and even talked to me during the jump itself. This jump was truly an unforgetable experience. Rob did an awesome job capturing my jump on video so I could share my "jump" to my friends and family. I highly recommend Start Skydiving to anyone who is considering this adventure.

I would strongly recommend Start Skydiving to anyone interested in skydiving as a new experience. My first tandem jump couldn't have gone better. The staff was well prepared, kind, and quite organized. My tandem jumper was Dan P. and he made this experience even more memorable. Dan was laid back and humorous while still very informative, experienced, and helpful. The whole staff was clearly interested and experienced in their line of work and very charismatic to boot, which put my mind at ease. My boyfriend and I went on a Thursday, which I would recommend because it's not one of their busy days so the process went smoothly (it's cheaper Wednesday, however). I also recommend getting the video and pictures. While it was expensive I have some pretty cool pictures to keep from the experience. My final word on the experience was just the fact that I felt safe. Their professionalism and care made me feel safe during an experience that had the potential to be very scary.
