Woman 1: A friend of mine told me about jumping out of an airplane and I thought I just had to try it because I’m afraid of heights, I can’t stand rollercoasters, and I thought I just had to try to conquer a fear. I knew if I could do this, I know I can do anything I want to do. 

Woman 2: Waking up, it begins there, you know. The reality that, ‘I’m going to be jumping out of a plane,’ and then that hour and a half drive to get here. You know, your nerves are all shot and you’re ready to do it and then you get here and it’s just like pure smiles the rest of the time. You’re just ready to do it. 

Instructor: The energy that’s around here, you come in and no matter what kind of day you’re having, as soon as you get here it’s like you’re uplifted immediately. Your energy gets booted up from other people. Everyone’s so friendly. It’s your home away from home. 

Woman 1: We came a little early because we wanted to watch a few people jump and see what that whole experience was and see what the training was, and Bo sat with us and showed us a video and talked through things several times so that we could understand it. 

Bo: We are all about safety and fun here, right. So with all that said, we will start with a short video here…

Instructor: It starts off with about a 45 minute ground school. You go through the whole thing from boarding the airplane, what you’re going to be experiencing. Bo does a great thing on fear management, what you’re going to expect psychologically, what happens, that it’s ok to be afraid, it’s just normal. 

Woman 3: It makes me a lot more comfortable, that’s for sure. You kind of know what’s going to happen before it happens, I guess. You’re not completely surprised when you get up there. 

Instructor: From there, from the ground school we also teach the exit, how to exit, how to freefall appropriately, and how to land appropriately. So everything’s covered, from the moment you get suited up and get your harness on, to the second you land and take your harness off. 


[We’re only young and naive still
We require certain skills
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins
The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can’t help myself but count the flaws
Claw my way out through these walls
One temporary escape
Feel it start to permeate
We lie beneath the stars at night
Our hands gripping each other tight
You keep my secrets hope to die
Promises, swear them to the sky
The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah]

Woman’s voice: Amazing. I thought I was gonna be really scared when the door flew open and it was not a bad experience at all, it was great. 

Woman 1: I’m going to have to figure out what words to use to describe it. I don’t really know what those words are yet, because it’s very freeing. It’s like, just let go of control, just enjoy the ride, and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It’s just gorgeous around this part of Wisconsin. The river, the trees, the fields. Yeah, it’s just beautiful. 

Woman 2: The family environment here, and the way that it’s explained to you, step-by-step process, the comfort. It’s just always been that way ever since I’ve come here. The trust of the facility. I’ve always had a great experience. People ask me all the time, “why don’t you try here or try there,” but this is a good facility, I trust it, we’re good. 

Woman 1: Great facility, great staff, and they exceeded our expectations on every level. Every time I called with questions, they answered all my questions, all my concerns, even up until the last minute I was calling. They were great.

Making a skydive is about so much more than the jump itself. It’s about the atmosphere, the people you meet, and the memories you create. Your safety and comfort are our number one priority, and we want to make sure you know it.
