Skydive Chicago is the only place to jump. The professionalism, care, friendliness and energy is all top notch. Feel like you are in good hands and just go for it. You will feel like they have everything completely in control, they are committed to safety and want you to enjoy your day. My husband and I have several jumps over the last ten years. You won't regret going to Skydive Chicago, just go.

My daughter talked me and her brother into skydiving, so we came here to jump out of perfectly good plane for the first time in our lives. The people, the facilities, the experience...everything was awesome. It had been cloudy all morning and early afternoon so we had to sit around a few hours waiting for it to clear out. They offered rain checks that could be used anytime in the next 12 months, but we waited it out and we're glad we did. Chad, C Bass and Ryan were great tandem instructors; made us feel much less nervous and got us down to the ground safely. What a ride!

If you are looking for an adventure, this is the place to go! My group made reservations ahead of time . We arrived at the designated time and filled out our paperwork, sat through a short class. We had to wait about 30 minutes for our group to be called.
I am a 54 year old woman and was assigned a tandem master by the name of Gene. Gene was exactly what I needed to rise to this challenge. He was knowledgeable and kind. He went through all of the steps with me and got me all strapped into my harness.
The jump was amazing! Everything I imagined and more!
If you are thinking about doing this, stop thinking and DO IT!

The best time I've ever had skydiving! The facilities, aircraft and staff are all amazing, having free coaching from some of the best skydivers in the world is the best! Can't recommend enough I will definitely be a regular at this event.

Everyone that works there is super friendly and they all know what they're doing. By the time that I was flying over 10,000 feet from the ground, worrying about my own safety didn't even cross my mind. Thats how good they are when it comes to making sure you have an extraordinary time being hurled out of an airplane. I also got the chance to be in the same airplane as the United States national skydiving team.
