The Midwest United States may be one flat plain. but even flat can be exciting when you're falling at 120 miles per hour. That's why skydiving Ohio should be on everybody's list in the Buckeye state. College football and Indians baseball. move over. because Ohio parachuting is now the pastime to do.

Although almost anyone can skydive in Ohio. there are some things that beginners should know ahead of time. Skydiving Ohio requires some training. registration. and safety requirements before they actually let you take a jump out of an airplane.

First off. when you first arrive at a skydiving school or jump site. they will require you to fill out a registration form. The most important part of this form is the waiver. which is your way of saying that you won't hold the jump center liable if your Ohio parachuting experience goes bad.

Don't worry. though. The skydiving school will then make sure as possible that you will have the best experience doing your skydive in Ohio. They'll check to make sure you meet the United States Parachute Associate guidelines for health and fitness.

The final step before they actually let you leap is the training and the testing. Yes. there will be a quiz! You'll have to learn how to control your body in flight. as well as what to do with it when you land and other important parts of skydiving. Then you'll be required to pass a physical. oral. or written test to prove you were listening to the instructors.

Seem like a lot of requirements? Not really. You should be finished with them in 30 to 45 minutes. especially if your first jump is tandem. It also may depend on which one of these following fine Ohio establishments you choose to jump at:

Aerohio Skydiving Center in Rittman is closest to Akron (20 miles away) and offers the comfort and attention of a small jump center. Don't get them wrong. though. They have the facilities and capabilities of a large. cutting-edge skydiving school. as well.

Alliance Sport Parachute Club has been around for more than 40 years just west of Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania. so they know how to provide the right combination of friendliness and seriousness to make your first jumps safe and fun.

Cleveland Parachute offers one of the rare chances to do indoor skydiving with its Virtual Reality Skydiving simulator. Plus. they have a clubhouse and volleyball court for after your real jump.
