    Decided to go skydiving for the first time for my 24th birthday on Friday 1/26 and had the best time of my life! Piedmont skydiving has extremely friendly staff and amazing instructors who are funny and make you feel safe! Josh was my instructor and he was awesome! Made me feel very comfortable. Amazing how falling towards the earth at 125 mph makes you feel alive! Definitely going back to them! Found a new fun hobby 🙂 thanks piedmont skydiving! See y’all soon!

    Piedmont is the best drop zone on the east coast. The instructors are top notch and every one that comes to the drop zone is treated like family. This was my third time jumping and there will be many more. My instructor was kyle he makes you feel very comfortable and safe,he is a top notch guy and instructor so if you have ever thought about jumping out of a perfectly good air plane piedmont skydiving is the place to go. Just a little adout piedmont skydiving they do tandems, fun jumps for liecenced skydivers and also teach you how to become a licensed skydiver so again this is the best place to do it all.Thank you piedmont for one of the best days.

    I did my first skydive at Piedmont Skydiving and couldn't have asked for a better experience. All of the instructors were super chill and made the experience fun. Once arriving there it only took about 20-25 minutes and we were on the plane and going up to jump. My instructor, Derek. was awesome and I would def go back to Piedmont Skydiving in the future for my second jump.

    Such a great experience! I was a first time skydiver, and a little nervous, but the guys we went up with were really good at telling us enough information to feel prepared, while also keeping the mood light. Derek was awesome, and if I went back, I would definitely ask for him again. Very safe, fun, and affordable. Nothing bad to say!
