My sister and I had an amazing time! We booked our first tandem jump for 11am on a Sunday. Unfortunately, we waited around for 5 hours for our group to be called before the weather started to turn. We ended up getting a rain check and went back the following Friday and booked the first time slot at 9:30am. We arrived about 15 minutes before 9:30 and because we had already done the class when we were there on Sunday they said we would be going out pretty much right away. Our tandem jumpers introduced themselves and got us into our gear and the next thing we knew we were loaded onto the plane with a bunch of other solo jumpers. The tandem jumpers explained what was going to happen every step of the way so we both felt comfortable and before we knew it we were falling through the sky. My advice if it’s your first time with Skydive Chicago: Avoid weekends if possible, book early time slots, arrive early, and check the weather if Ottawa is a drive for you. Overall, we had a great time and have already booked our second jump.

OMG! Great instuctor/tandem master. My instructor was Sean. He talked and walked me through the whole experience. Myself and my 2 children did the jump together. Great experience. The plane was full so I got the added experience of sitting co-pilot.

Professional, organized, friendly and inviting. My 20 & 18 yr olds completed their first jump today- I was extremely impressed with the staff. The two tandem instructors we were blessed to have made this nerve racking experience a true pleasure. Interactive, humorous and paid individual attention to their student. Highly recommend!!!

I'am hooked! Words can hardly describe the feeling of jumping out of a plane and free falling through the sky. The facility was very well kept and everyone that worked there made you feel like family. My instructor was Fly easy (Eric) he was very clear on instructions and made sure I had the best time possible. After my first jump I purchased the discounted second jump and was back in the sky 40mins later. I highly recommend Skydive Chicago. I'am already looking into getting my A-license. Stop procrastinating and get to Skydive Chicago!!
