Very informative, very patient, excellent course. Recommending to all my friends! Well worth the money!
Everyone, from the owners, instructors, coaches, and other jumpers were extremely kind, and patient. The class that Kat taught was informative and helpful (she was far more patient with some of those students than I would’ve been). One of the best experiences of my life! Thank you so much.
Had an amazing time and it was easy to see the staff loves what they do.cant wait to continue!!!!!
I was getting current after a 6 year layoff, and therefore attended the AFF First Jump Course. It was excellent, it covered everything that I needed to know (including a lot that I had forgotten) to get back in the sky. Both the classroom instructor and the free fall instructor were awesome.
The course was well-structured and informative, and the instructors were very nice and provided helpful information and advice on what I need to do to continue and progress in the AFF course.
I had a great time and the people at Kapowsin are nice and helpful. I had a great jump with the exception of my eye protection not being tight enough causing me to lose focus on the free fall and worry about my eye glasses rather than the things I was supposed to be doing. I plan on going back and will use older eye glasses and really tight eye protection to prevent that happening again.
I’ve done 2 tandem jumps and most recently started the AFF corse here at skydive kapowsin. This place has such a friendly and welcoming environment compared to the other places I have jumped. Definitely worth giving them your business even if it means driving a little farther, you won’t be disappointed I assure you that.
Everyone was professional and very fun cant wait to come again
I initially scheduled my AFF Level1 course for Saturday morning. Even though the class was a large, Zack was thorough in his teachings. When it came time to exit the aircraft, all the things I had been taught clicked and made me feel safe, even though I was hurling toward the earth at terminal velocity. After some more ground schooling from both Andy and Kasha, I was able to also pass my Level 2 later that afternoon. My canopy piloting skills still suck, but that's my fault. Another great weekend spent at Kapowsin! I'm looking forward to many more!
I loved it. The class was long but felt prepared when I got to the plane. It was a great experience. So good that as soon as I landed I went and paid for another jump. Plan on going back here soon.
I had an amazing time. The instructors were incredible. Totally supportive and having reviewed the skills needed on the ground, I felt confident when I was up in the plane and in the air.
The instructors and all other people associated with Kapowsin Air were very nice, helpful, and enthusiastic about helping all of us new jumpers from start to finish.
Took my son here for his 18th birthday for the AFF class and 1st jump. He loved it. All the employees made it seem like a family-run place, having lots of fun amongst themselves and all the customers there that day, including new people like my son and the regulars.
I had a great time at my AFF course and jumps! Matthew was my instructor and explained all of the material well. Jan, Dennis, and Austin helped me on my jumps with form and made me feel at ease. I’m excited to be back to complete my jumps!
I have wanted to go skydiving for a while and I finally did it!! I did 2 jumps and it was a ton of fun. on my 2nd jump, I accidentally flipped upside down and my instructor helped right me, when we landed he explained to me how I did and explained what went wrong. overall I am very happy with my experience and I plan on returning to do more jumps in the future!
Excellent instructors, they are all very helpful and give good feedback.
Great instructors and equipment. Everyone had something informative to share. Good personal attention. Phenomenal views!
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!
