    The instructors were so much fun. What an experience running off of a mountain to sail down to the ground. The views were amazing and it was so peaceful up there. I appreciate that the cost of the pictures and video were reasonable. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

    The instructors were very friendly and knowledgeable. They talked to you throughout and made sure you were okay/calmed your nerves. The instructors and procedures were explained before take off and you practice running along with your instructor so you are prepared for take off.
