My husband wouldn't go, had to wait for my niece to turn 18. The paperwork is a bit daunting, allow plenty of time to read through it all. Smaller than other... More

The entire experience from first seeing their billboard on I-57 North to researching their website then talking with Brad was a 5 on a scale of 1-5; 5 being the highest. The entire crew is fun, friendly & helpful and I could not have picked a better... More

I had a lot of doubts about skydiving when the opportunity had come up to go, but after meeting the staff and instructors at Skydive Greater, I have now skydived three times and plan on taking the AFF course to jump solo. It is an awesome place with amazing people and I highly recommend everyone to at least do it... More

When jumping for the fist time, being comfortable is of utmost importance. Skydive Greater did an excellent job of providing that comfort while at the same time providing their professional expertise. If you are... More
