This was meant as a once in a lifetime experience, and is so much more!! For those so inclined I am convinced that this experience will change your lives forever. I am now hooked and will skydive as a hobby, and have found new friends with the instructors here. I wholeheartedly recommend this experience to everyone. I am sure there will be some who hate it. But for those with adventure in their veins and a yearning for freedom that only the skies can bring, there is no other experience with the power to change your life!!!
