Ohio offers some of the best skydiving in the nation. Skydiving, or sport parachuting, is an exciting sport for people of all ages. Whether it is your first time or one hundred and first skydiving adventure, there is always something new to experience.
Ohio skydivers in training make their first jump with a trained and experienced instructor. The trained instructor, or jumpmaster, will take care of the exit, position, and control and landing of the parachute. In addition to the primary parachute, Ohio skydivers are required to carry a second parachute that is inspected by a FAA certified parachute rigger. In addition, skydivers carry an automatic activation device that opens the second parachute if needed for your safety.
