My husband surprised me with skydiving for my birthday something I have always wanted to do. We live in Kentucky, but he knew Eastern Tennessee would have a beautiful view from the sky. We showed up early and they took us right in. I felt very confident after reviewing the video and listening to my instructor Carter give instructions. It was time to suit up and harness up. My husband ordered the video and photo package Carter did an amazing job capturing every moment of my experience. Once in the plane Carter my instructor continuously went over each detail of our jump which made me very comfortable. Carter also made sure to tell me what beautiful sites their was to see from the air. Once we were ready to go he made sure we were secure and made sure I was comfortable. It was time to jump and with it being my first time I didn’t know what to expect. The free fall was my favorite part it literally felt like we was floating. My instructor gave me a tap to let me know I could let my arms out and another tap when it was time to pull the chute. He made sure to face me towards the Smokey MTNS and pointed out the bald eagles below us. At one point my instructor let take control of the chute what an amazing experience. While all this is happening he is documenting my whole experience. If you have the opportunity to skydive you have to check out Skydive East Tennessee. I am definitely going to return for another jump I had such a good experience.

Wow what an experience!! Lovely welcoming staff at every step of the process. I felt safe and confident, everyone needs to sky dive at least once in their life. I'll never forget soaring above the Smokey Mountains!

Everything about Skydive East Tennessee was absolutely wonderful, from the reservation with Alisha to the flying with Francois & Carter. It was the perfect way to start a mini vacay! This is the 2nd time I've dragged my boyfriend to jump with me and I have to say that the crew made our experience extra fun! They were professional, enthusiastic, informational and triple checked all safety precautions. I just love that exhilarating feeling of flying (especially over the beautiful Smoky Mountains), so thank you, crew, for joining my excitement & taking a few quick pix before heading in the air. The jump was breathtaking and we were able to steer ourselves a bit, which was really cool. Get the video, it's so worth it! You'll be able to re-live that moment & see the beautiful terrain. I have 2 other people who've asked me to jump with them...needless to say, I'll be back, Skydive East Tennessee!!! Thanks again for an awesome experience!! Barbie

Skydive East Tennessee is a great choice if you're in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area and want to try out Tandem Skydiving. My friend and I are first time jumpers. We felt the crew there did a great job of explaining the risks, covering the legal bases and preparing us for the jump. They explained to us multiple times how the jump was going to go. Skydiving is a very nerve-wracking experience even when you are prepared, but no one at the place ever made it seem like we couldn't back out if we got overwhelmed by the idea. Carter and Francois were our instructors and they did a fantastic job making sure our rigging was properly secure and that we were fully prepared for the jump. They did several checks of our equipment while we were still on the ground and then on the way up in the plane. I felt very secure in their competent hands. This is a mom and pop type establishment with one small plane doing runs every 20-30 minutes. There are no frills. You get into the floor of the small hold of the plane and ascend to 2 miles up in the air, the door is opened, you kick your right foot out after your instructor and we push out and experienced the most amazing rush I've ever had. All the equipment is well maintained and the instructors are professional seasoned veterans. Also, get the video/photo package. You will not be disappointed. We had a fantastic time and I would definitely jump again with Skydive East Tennessee.
