At Ohio Skydiving Center we only hire US Parachute Association Certified instructors and experienced pilots trained beyond industry expectations. Each tandem instructor must have a minimum of 500 jumps before being eligible to take passengers, and our pilots must have a minimum of 500 hours before flying our planes!

We pride ourselves on having the best staff in the industry who are passionate about introducing you to the world of skydiving.
