Absolutely had a blast with Arnel and the whole team. They have such great energy and made the whole experience amazing from the beginning. If you're looking for a place to take the plunge out of a plane definitely go to Gateway Skydiving Center. Can't wait to go back!
100% recommended, will totally go again sometime! DO go for the video option they have, like they said: you only get one first experience and it's easy to forget some parts of it when you're plummeting towards the Earth for the first time! Arnel was my instructor and I couldn't have asked for better; he has the air of experience that comes with (at the time) 4300 jumps, and certainty, he was calm and kept me calm, reminding me to breathe. Like many, I'm totally afraid of heights, but this was a thrill unlike any other I've had. If you pay attention to their simple instructions, you're gonna be as fine as can be, and will have a blast. This was what I did for my Golden Birthday and YES, I picked the right thing and place and people!!! Thank you Gateway!!!
The instructors were amazing! Everyone is very nice and it's an incredible experience that everyone should try at least once!
