What Goes Down
Board one of the fastest, safest turbine aircrafts available and soar 10,000 to 14,000 feet up in the air. From there, attached to the front of your instructor's harness, you'll make the great leap, experiencing up to 60 seconds of free fall, followed by an exhilarating canopy ride that lasts up to seven minutes. You'll steer the parachute however you'd like, while your instructor ensures your safety throughout your descent.

YOU MUST RESERVE YOUR SPACE YOURSELF - A DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED

    Saturday Weather - Mostly Sunny with a 20% chance of rain. Winds NE at 8 mph. I called to confirm we are all set with the booking. I checked with the airfield and they don't anticipate any delays or issue with weather.

    PLEASE PRINT YOUR VOUCHER and bring it with you. They will not accept the vouchers on a phone.

    \m/ can't wait! \m/

    • Crystelle

      I can commit to taking you there if you meet me at City Hall and then return you to 30th street or City Hall

    Hi guys...
    Can't wait until 3 august.
    Does someone want to do that earlier?for example next week...

    June 16, 2013

    • Crystelle

      You might want to get in touch with Matt, I think he was considering a different venue so you two might be able to hook up and go together?

      June 20, 2013

  • Ashley B. M.

    I notice there's no public transportation in that area (strange for an airport, no?)...wondering if anyone coming from the philadelphia area would like to carpool? I REALLY want to go! I've always wanted to skydive (and conquer my fear of heights!)

    June 14, 2013

    • Crystelle

      Hi Ashley, there are a couple of people offering rides. I may get a Zipcar if there is overflow. Let us know!

      June 18, 2013

  • Crystelle

    Hi Everyone! The dates are filling up quickly. I've had to go ahead and move this again (I know, I know, sorry!) to August 10th. I will be sending an email to everyone outlining my conversation with Customer Service this morning. If you have not provided me with your information PLEASE call and schedule your jump NOW! (800)[masked] Further instructions to be provided in the email.

  • Matt

    http://local.amazon.com/philadelphia-northern-suburbs/B00CUNMUBW this is in collegeville snd its 100 $ off so I got it. Let me know if anyone is interested in changing venues

    June 17, 2013

  • Crystelle

    For all of you that are going (have a voucher or are dead set on coming) you are welcome to call into Philadelphia SkyDive and make the appointment yourself. I thought it might be easier for me to reserve the spot for everyone that way we are all together, however, to reserve a spot I need your voucher information (see email). Sadly I can only put your name if you don't have a voucher and you will need to call and arrangement payment by credit card with the company. Sorry not a paypal fan.

    June 14, 2013

  • Eric F.

    The new date works for me. Let me know if I have to do anything to register my jump.

    June 14, 2013

    • Crystelle

      You can either schedule yourself or if you have the information in the other email you can send along. I have Cody's and David's so we're for sure a group of 4. I just want to make sure that anyone that is really coming gets the same date.

      June 14, 2013

  • Greg S.

    tentative... but really excited about going!

      Dave... I'd like to take you up on the offer. Thanks!

      June 14, 2013

    • Michael S.

      I should also have a car that can hold three other people with me as the driver.

  • Eric F.

    what does everyone think about July 13th for our jump? Its' the first weekend after the 4th and it will give us a few weekends to reschedule if we get rained out. I'm suggesting we plan for our first rain date and make it July 20th.

    May 19, 2013

    • Michael S.

      I think July 13 is perfect. I'll know more about having a car the closer we get. Mine is in the shop getting a new engine so it should be done by then. If not I can rent one.

      May 20, 2013

    • Crystelle

      I changed the meetup and will call the airfield :)

      May 21, 2013

  • Cody F.

    Sounds good

    May 19, 2013

  • Crystelle

    Alright I think we have a large group here. Eric made some comment about going when it is warm, Dave B you can probably chime in on good times of the year since you've gone. July sound good? Start throwing out dates and I will call the company and see what their schedule looks like :):)

      Well I've only gone once before but it was in the summertime, but in Australia (so actually it was winter) but I agree that June/July is probably a good time to do this

      May 17, 2013

  • Michael S.

    I may have the car out of the shop depending on the date and can fit up to 3 or 4 other people. Looking forward to this one!

    May 16, 2013

    • Crystelle

      Awesome! Where do you live Michael (Mike?) that way we can coordinate which are the most convenient to come to you/meet you :)

      May 17, 2013

    • Michael S.

      I am in Powelton Village. Have we decided on a Date yet? Can't wait to make this happen. Thank you for putting it together Crystelle.

      May 17, 2013

  • Eric F.

    Hi Everyone, Looks like we have a good group shaping up. I still like the idea of a warm June / July jump too. the only weekends we may want to avoid are the weekend of the 4th of July, and the weekend before the 4yh in case someone is extending their vacation time for a full week. I know I'm considering a trip that week. As for transportation, I'ill be driving my truck. It seats 3 plus me comfortably. If someone needs a ride and can catch SEPTA to the Doylestown station I can pick up before and drop off after the jump. We may even like to catch a bite to eat in town....after the jump not before! :-)

    May 16, 2013

    • Cody F.

      I'm down with that

      May 17, 2013

    • Crystelle

      I'm up for it as well. Depending on the number of people that are really into it we might have enough space between you and Michael.

  • Cody F.

    I second that..waiting for warmer weather is better bc it will be warmer at[masked] ft...I went late in the yr one time and it was colds as hell when your jumping out

    May 16, 2013

    • Crystelle

      hey says to the woman that is always cold! LOL

      May 16, 2013

    • Cody F.

      Hey now I'm from the south I like my warmth!

      May 16, 2013

  • Cody F.

    But it prob won't matter much bc when you are up that high the temp is last on the list of worries lol

    May 16, 2013

  • Cody F.

    hope the date is good

    May 14, 2013

  • Cody F.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
