Skydiving in Ohio: What To Look For
If you are looking to go skydiving in Ohio, it can be challenging to determine where to jump as there aren't Consumer Reports for skydiving centers. What's important to know is that skydiving centers are like any other business - they all sell a product or service, but the quality of the product or service varies from one establishment to another. The point here is that a great skydiving experience goes beyond exiting a plane, free-falling, and landing safely. As in most things, it's the people and the organizational culture that make a business and your experience special.
Cheap Skydiving: You Get What You Pay For
Don't let the lowest price in your area inform your decision on where to skydive. Because there aren't any formal reports (beyond online reviews) that measure the quality of one dropzone to the next, too often, first-time jumpers select a place based on the lowest price. Here's an appropriate analogy: Would you select the cheapest heart surgeon? Of course, you wouldn't; you'd do your homework to find the most qualified. Very low pricing should serve as a red flag because operating a full-service skydiving center is not a cheap endeavor. Aircraft maintenance, gear maintenance, etc., is costly, so don't let the cost of a skydive be the deciding factor on where you should go skydiving in Ohio.
Proximity Isn't Always Best
If you're searching for 'skydiving dayton ohio' you'll see there are a few skydiving centers located within a two hours drive of Dayton. Similar to low price, don't select the closest skydiving center to you as the default. Once again, do your homework - skydiving prices and proximity should not be what drives your decision making!
Skydiving near Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio: How to Do Your Homework
We recommend making a checklist from skydiving prices, proximity, online reviews and even calling on the phone. In a digital world, it's easy to book your tandem skydive online without speaking to anyone, but it's a good idea to call the skydiving center and speak with someone to get a sense of their professionalism. Additionally, take the time to read online reviews and benchmark the various skydiving prices as they may vary between weekday and weekend pricing. If you're needing a skydiving discount, jumping on a weekday usually saves money.
In the end, we want you to have an amazing skydiving experience. Our owner and operator Jaime Praeter has spent her life in the sport and has seen it all. Says Jaime, "Skydiving is one of the world's great adventures, but the connection you feel with the operation and its people plays a huge role in the experience. Don't purchase your skydive purely on price, but kick the tires, do your homework as you would do with anything else."
