This place is so legit. I had an incredible experience for my first jump and probably wouldn't go anywhere else! The staff are all super friendly and professional and know what they're doing and love it. If you are planning on going BUY THE PHOTO PACKAGE! It seems a little pricey but when I read other reviews people were encouraging me to buy it as well and I don't regret it one bit. So worth it to be able to relive the experience. I got about 90 great quality pictures and a dvd with a video of my jump. This was a ton of fun and would for sure go back to this place again!

Incredible experience I had instructor Kyle Whittier and my girlfriend had instructor Lonnie Kirk. They were very professional and fun and made jumping out of a plane for the first time easy. These guys deserve a raise! Worth every bit of the four hour drive!

Absolutely amazing! I felt safe the entire time and totally trusted my instructor. Every staff person we talked to was very friendly! I was in a group of 5, all tandem jumping, and every instructor tailored the experience to fit each of our needs. I am more of a daredevil, so my instructor (Will M.) made my descent more thrilling. My cousin is more timid and reserved, so her instructor (whose name I did not catch) made her experience less thrilling so she felt safer and happier. Another cousin's instructor, Lonnie K, was attentive and very friendly. He chatted with the entire group, even though he was only taking 1 of us up. Overall, I was positively thrilled with the experience! It's been over 12 hours and I am still elated and excited about this experience! I HIGHLY recommend Start Skydiving to anyone looking for a wonderful experience!

I highly recommend Start Skydiving in Middletown Ohio. The atmosphere there was great!.. no pun intended.. The place is well established and there are a lot of cool people that made our whole experience the best it could be. I have zero complaints about the place, and I would definitely go back. My T.I. Larry Compton was a blast. His experience in sky diving and personality made my first jump smooth and worry free! Very thankful I was able to jump at such a great place with such cool people! You should definitely go jump too!

I jumped for the first time on May 6th, 2015 and it was the first of many more to come. I brought along 4 other friends to jump but when we made reservations, we had to schedule at different times due to availability. That being said, the lady at the front desk put all of us onto the same jump- this was a pleasant surprise we noticed while waiting to suit up. We had a brief delay but it worked in our favor as we were able to jump right at sunset! Anyways, I jumped with Lonnie Kirk and I couldn't imagine a better person to be with for my first skydive. He was funny, reassuring, and did a great job with the wrist pics and film. He did some sweet turns, too. If you have the opportunity to go tandem with him, you're going to have an exceptionally good time! I got the Rock Star picture/video package and Mel did a fantastic job! I got 90 of the coolest pictures ever taken of me and I am so glad I got the video too. She's got a great vibe and is just a cool chick. I had one of the best experiences of my life jumping with Lonnie and Mel. I have a history of dislocated shoulders and continue to have a very loose right shoulder. Anyways, I dislocated my shoulder right as I stuck my arms out in free fall. Don't worry, unless you have had previous, severe shoulder injuries, you'll be fine. If you have, I would recommend keeping your hands on your chest straps. Despite this, it was still one of the top experiences of my life because of the actual jump and the staff at Start Skydiving. Once back on the ground the staff was INCREDIBLE. Lonnie, Mel, Rob (another instructor), and Jeannie (another instructor's wife, I believe) were right by my side until I eventually popped it back into place. Rob supported my head and back for close to 20 minutes and Jeannie held up my arm. Mel was right there to help with the situation and cut the tension with jokes and a positive vibe. Lonnie got me ice and stayed past closing time to give me words of support. Mel also stayed past closing to edit the video and pictures. I cannot adequately describe what the staff meant to me during that time. Lonnie, Mel, and Rob are absolutely world-class. There were several others, whose names I didn't catch, that gave me words of advice and support. Start Skydiving is very fortunate to have them as employees. I can't wait to get jump #2 under my belt!

I jumped with Brian today and it was unbelievable! Everyone was really friendly and fun to talk to and they had games like corn hole to help pass the time while the weather passed over! Brian made the experience amazing! I told him I wanted to have fun going down so he twirled me and played around while we were gliding down! It was the absolute best experience I could have asked for as a first time jumper!!! I will definitely be returning! Thanks again Brian!!!

I had a great experience at StartSkydiving. The process was simply and easy and the people were friendly and helpful. Definitely sign-up for the video and photos! The jump was amazing. I was informed of the process and felt secure the entire time. Ask for Brian. He was very professional! It was a great experience!
