I just wanted to thank everyone again for the AMAZING time I had yesterday.
I’m sitting at my desk at work and can’t stop thinking about the thrill and the view from my jump. It is something I will NEVER forget!

Thanks so much for the GREAT time Carol, her son Kevin, her brother Ken and I all had on our introductory tandem jump.
Prior to coming to Above the Poconos Skydivers, we had researched every skydiving school within a three hour drive of our home in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. After researching on the internet and calling several schools we narrowed our list and visited several schools in person. We knew immediately Above the Poconos Skydivers was the best and only choice for us. When we first arrived, the staff and non staff jumpers all greeted us with a warm and sincere welcome. We were invited in to watch, ask questions and even participate in learning how to pack a parachute. No pressure, just people offering to share their knowledge and passion for their sport. Meeting Don Kellner, the Guinness Book of World Records title holder for most sport parachute jumps and his wife Darlene, the women’s fourth place title holder was a real pleasure. They were the nicest people and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and a part of group.
On jump day, everything was thoroughly explained. The one on one instruction, attention to every detail and professionalism of the entire staff was very reassuring and let us know we were in good hands. As a graduate of the U.S. Army Airborne school at Fort Benning, Georgia, I know quality instruction. Above the Poconos Skydivers is top notch and 2nd to none. We are excited to continue our training, receiving our licenses and making many more jumps with our new friends at Above the Poconos Skydivers.
All I have to say is that this was an experience like no other. The staff was awesome and Dan and Pooky were the coolest people I have ever came in contact with and non the less, jump out of an airplane with!!! I had an amazing time and I will absolutely do it again! Thank you for the wonderful experience Above the Pocono Skydivers and Staff!!!
Theresa liked it so much that she sent us two pictures for the web.
We want to thank Frank and Rob for making our first skydive a wonderful experience, “A day we will never forget.” Don Kellner and his staff is second to none.The landing was like sitting down in a chair.We will see you again in October. Thanks again, Boyd and Deb
Congratulations to everyone that jumped with us. We hope that you all had the time of your life!
