    The folks here are great. Everything is very casual. I never felt unsafe at all. I've been back again already and plan for many more jumps.

    Skydiving was on my bucket list of things to do in my life. I had the pleasure of doing the high altitude dive with my son, my brother and my nephew. It was absolutely exhilarating!!! I will definitely be back to do it again.
