The experience was fabulous. Skydive Monroe feels like a club of skydiving enthusiasts who create a atmosphere of fun while being very serious about safety and proffessional about teachng the proper technique. For a first solo jump, count 5.5 to 6 hour instructions, but it is absolutely worth it! The risk? You might just get hooked on skydiving! Alternative to solo jump is to go in tandem, much less time spent training and your jump will start from much farther above in the sky, but of course you do not steer your parachute. Anyhow, if you are considering a try at skydiving in GA, I highly recommend Skydive Monroe. I will return there

What You'll Get


Though children are taught to reach for the sky, in time it becomes apparent that jumping out of the sky is more empowering. Pull off the finer of two feats with today's deal: for $110, you get a tandem jump at Skydive Monroe, a $190 value. The jump site is a short drive from the University of Georgia and about 40 miles east of downtown Atlanta in Monroe. You'll receive a one-hour instructional course in equipment and safety training before taking off from the Monroe-Walton County Airport and making your tandem jump.

When falling from 14,000 feet, the best thing to be strapped to is a go-go-gadget copter or, failing that, one of the certified sky captains at Skydive Monroe, a member of the United States Parachute Association. With hours of jumping experience and hundreds of first-time jumpers under his or her wing, only jumpmasters and USPA-certified instructors will be your tandem companion. Using state-of-the-art equipment and a single drop of Peregrine Falcon sweat, jumpers and instructors will slice through cloud tops at top speeds. Once your velocity stabilizes, select a drink from the beverage cart before the time comes to pop open the chute and gently flutter back to solid ground. Wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes to ensure a comfortable flight and safe landing.

People who are scared of heights expect to be scared stiff by jumping out of an airplane and hurtling through the air, but many of them are surprised to find they're totally comfortable. People who skydive say the feeling of pure freedom is unparalleled, the adrenaline rush is addictive, facing one's fears is satisfying, and falling out of the sky is pretty good.

There is a tandem jump weight limit of 225 lbs for men and 170 lbs for women. You must be 18 or older, and signing a waiver is mandatory.

Reviews

One DropZone.com reviewer and an Insider Pager each give Skydive Monroe a perfect five stars:

  • The instructors will help you have a safe and wonderful time jumping from the plane, even if you are fantasizing about being James Bond on a secret mission. – Julie C., Insider Pages
  • the owner right away came up and introduced himself, gave me a tour of the facilities and introduced me to some other skydivers who I might like to jump with...I checked out a few other DZ's around ATL and this was by far my fav! – shinyhapy, DropZone.com
