The safety course was excellent and prepared me exceptionally well. The instructors on the jump were very careful checking my equipment as needed and provided very helpful discussion afterwards. I would recommend Skydive Kapowsin for everyone wanting to have AFF training.
Professional service and friendly staff. Also made me feel comfortable about jumping for the first time.
Amazing staff! Very informational and helpful! I had the time of my life and ended up going back up for my level 2 aff jump as soon as I landed my first jump! Going back this coming weekend!
I had the most helpful and nicest instructors. This place is by fare the best place to jump in the west coast. The two instructors I jumped with helped me out so much. Very cool people to jump with. Everyone was super friendly. Safety is number 1 and the equipment was top of the line. I’ll be going back very soon.
Excellent instructor and staff and a clear indication by the company in general of total competency within the realm of skydiving and aviation.
Everything from the facilities to the staff was amazing! Some of the best people I’ve had the pleasure to meet, learn from and hang out with. Our instructors Rachel and Jacob were really fun and super helpful teachers. Can’t wait to take the next jump!
My boyfriend and I have both done a couple tandem dives and decided it was time to take the class and learn how to pull the chute ourselves. From the moment we walked through the door we felt at home here. We saw nothing but smiling faces, all equally excited about our first jump as we were. The class was thorough and very informative. We covered all gear operations, and emergency procedures which helped us both better understand the dive, and ease our nerves. The jump itself was incredible! Our instructors were lighthearted joksters, but when it came down to business I never had any doubts about trusting them with my life. During the free fall they used hand signals to communicate, and helped me position my body correctly. They talked me through the landing on a walkie talkie, and when we touched down again they walked us through every step of the dive, giving us really thorough coaching and showing us tips on how to make the next dive even better! We are both hooked on diving, and Skydive Kapowsin. We can't wait to come back and get our licenses!
I took the AFF class and was very impressed by the level of care the instructors have in insuring I was prepared for my first jump. Everyone there was very warm and inviting and always very helpful.
The class was very informative and helpful when it came time to apply it in the air. This was the most life changing experience I have ever had and the Kapowsin team made sure I was safe. The only thing that I had complications with was radio comms while under the canopy. I couldn't here much either because of the wind noise or old batteries in the radio.
Everyone was great. I was made to feel very welcome.
Loved the family atmosphere. The class was very well put together and loved that everyone was willing to help. See you soon!!!
Besides it being too windy for the first jump, the class was great. I will be talking more people into doing it at Kapowsin for sure!
Great instructors and an awesome experience!
I didn't realize I would be doing an assisted jump, I thought it would be tandem, i liked this because it pushed me out of my comfort zone faster. Looking forward to more!
Great class and instructors. Learned a lot and had fun!
I will be back to finish and get my license. The staff was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The only complaint I have is that I’m not closer. I live in Everett. But that’s not your fault.
I was extremely pleased with the instructions provided coupled with the customer service from the front desk.
From first walking through the door, folks were relaxed, organized and enthusiastic. Information in the classroom was clear, well organized, designed to reinforce itself as we went through the video presentations as well as the physical practice. Jarrod was confident and patient with students. The practical exercises where designed to build confidence. The AFF instructors were friendly and confident. Their combined ease and competence did as much as possible to reduce my tension and calm my nerves. I can't say enough about the community of Skydivers at Kapowsin. Coming back from the first jump of the day, there were nothing but smiles, high-fives, and congratulations for the newbies. It is a rare and fine thing to be with a large group of people so positive, enjoying their sport, and welcoming to neophytes. Many thanks to all... I have nothing but joy, gratitude, praise for my Saturday at Kapowsin. I'll be back this coming weekend to work my way through the rest of my AFF jumps!
Exceptional experience overall! Very professional and relaxing throughout
The staff was so relaxed and fun, they added on to the experience of the sky dive
Had the best experience ever! Going again!
Keith the instructor was terrific. The environment is extremely professional and worth the hour and a half drive easy.
An awesome experience. I was impressed with everything start to finish. I am recommending it to anyone!!!
Great class, great staff and everyone was very pleasant and very helpful. Great for a first skydive experience.
Professional, personal and fun
Very professional and awesome people to be around. Felt comfortable and safe
Very knowledgeable and passionate staff. The facility was accommodating and well organized. I couldn't imagine a better experience!
Inconsistency between AFF instructors regarding a few things such as how to exit the aircraft and how to position arms during chute deployment. Could have spent more time on PLF. Other than that everyone was very helpful and nice. Instructions were well presented and easy to understand. Overall very good experience.
Training was straight forward and easy to follow. Repetition on emergency procedure and everyone there are very welcoming
More than satisfied. The people out at skydive kapowsin are super friendly. Everybody there is more than willing to help you learn.
The instructors were very helpful and friendly. The comunity as a whole is very fun to,be around. Theu,jad good quality gear to borrow. 10/10 will finish aaf course
my instructor was nice and laid back but got serious about safety during our AFF class which I can respect, I felt confident in the experience of my instructors, and they instilled confidence in myself when getting ready for the jump. A lot of people in my class got tripped up on the "6000ft lock on 5500ft wave off pull", I was thinking of teaching that when approaching 6000ft to "lock on, 6000ft, wave off, pull!" So that by the time they pull they'll have been about 5500 instead of waiting to pull at 5500, just nitpickin but it's somethin to try out. Thanks guys!
It was an amazing class with great instructors! I am definitely coming back for the next level.
Pretty self explanatory lol
Great class and first jump. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable and willing to share their experience.
John did a fabulous job teaching the classroom portion. He made it fun but also effective. Jared and Sopurkh were my instructors and they were great to jump with! They let me be independent without being reckless and had a lot of awesome feedback. I will absolutely be back soon.
I know a handful of the folks who instruct or jump regularly at Kapowsin through iFly, but was astonished at just how many people were there to jump on a sunny day -- it was very busy, but quite organized throughout. My instructor, John (and his backup, James) were highly professional, extremely thorough in their training, and very friendly. I highly recommend the AFF course here, this is a great place to learn things correctly from day 1! Also, it's hard to beat the view from here at 13,500 feet!
Great classroom instructors and skydiving coaches!
Great people, and very knowledgeable in a fun comfortable environment!
