Such a great group of professionals. I brought my grandma here for a tandem jump for her birthday and beat cancer present. The entire staff was friendly and welcoming. They did a great job staying in contact with us as well in regards to weather and safety checks. Thank you to George for being a great instructor and helping my grandma check off a bucket list item… we hope to see you in the spring for round 2!!!
One of the most awesome experiences of my life! The staff was so incredibly friendly, explained everything so thoroughly. The jump was absolutely incredible! My instructor was fantastic did everything from explaining several times what I needed to know to insuring all was secure. Anyone that has been thinking about doing this-Skydive Shenandoah is the place!!

What an amazing experience to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday! 100% recommended from customer service to safety checks. The entire staff made us feel welcomed. Shout out to Tony for being a great instructor!

My daughter and her husband, both veterans, really loved and enjoyed this I enjoyed watching both of their videos of them jumping. I could see the happiness and excitement in them, they will never forget this and the joy you gave them both. Now my other daughter whose husband is a veteran and my husband want to do this too. Thank you for doing these events, it is very much appreciated.
