    News from Start Skydiving:

Safety Day is March 3rd at Start Skydiving:

  Safety is paramount at Start Skydiving and it will be emphasized in everything we do this year. Please join us for Safety Day 2012 at Start Skydiving on Saturday March 3rd. This is a great time to see old friends, plan your upcoming skydiving season and become current on the most important aspect of our sport, “safety”. Things get started at 9am and should conclude around 2pm with free pizza for lunch.  Last year we had record attendance and hope to exceed it again this year. We will be raffling off 30 lift tickets, a tandem skydive and an AFF skydive during the event – all you have to do is be present.

2012 UC Skydiving Club:

UC has a new skydiving introduction course worth 1 credit hour. You get college credit for learning the basics of skydiving and also given the opportunity to make a jump at the end of the course. It is only 3 days long. Class is on May 9th, 10th, and 11th and the class is held at night each of these nights. On Saturday, May 12th, the class goes to the drop zone in the morning to jump. Sign up for the class to not only have the most fun credit hour of your college career but also to learn more about skydiving. CJ 520P is the code for the system!

Big thanks to John Wright for setting up the class and supporting the UC Skydiving Club!

2012 Tunnel Camp: 

Come join us at the largest wind tunnel in the world and train with John II and John III March 23-25!  We will be working on RW skills, mastering the mantis body position and having a blast!  While this camp is 4-way oriented, it can be geared to train and practice any belly-flying skills such as those needed for AFF/Coach jumps. People will learn in tandem with each other, allowing two coaches and two people to be in the tunnel together, reducing the cost of the time. Contact John Hart III at for more information and to book your time.

Feb 16, 2012…a day I will never forget…We went to Coleman, FL, and had the ride of a lifetime. The staff at Start Skydiving Florida made us feel very comfortable and safe as we prepared for our flight. Then we were off…..oh my….we climbed higher and higher into the sky and finally reached our destination….2 miles above ground….the doors opened and we prepared to “jump”. Nervous as all get out…..but out we went. Ed was first, then me. I could not believe I was doing this. Melanie and Thomas took great care with me and made me feel very good about this adventure. The videos and pictures came out great. I still cannot believe I did this. WOW, WOW, WOW…..I am glad I went, and we are planning to go again very soon…..Thank you for making this experience a “not once” in a lifetime…..but a “more to come” adventure.
