David Deluca

The best Drop Zone in the world. Friendliest staff for the most fun experience of your life!

Rafael M.

Awesome environment, by far the best dropzone I’ve been to. I finished my AFF skydiving school here, they have super experienced instructors not to mention the amazing facility with top of the line equipment. Everyone here is always in a good mood willing to help you with any questions or concerns you may have as a tandem or AFF student.

Come here, bring your pets and kids they’ll have a great time playing in the open green area. They also have a restaurant with decent food.

Marc Owens

This is where I got my start, and roughly 4800 jumps later, I continue to send people there from all over the place…the facilities a great, the people are Fab. and the STAFF…Top Notch!! The Grounds are the best kept in the sport.

Jenna Nicole

Without a doubt my absolute favorite place to be when I’m out of school and off work. I came here after I made a tandem skydive and decided I wanted to learn and did my AFF. The instructors and coaches are wonderful. You WILL learn here. Loved jumping with Michael, Randy and Mike so much. Even if the drive is 2 1/2 hours and I’m licensed now, I’ll keep coming back. There is so much to keep learning! I’m working towards my D license and XP will help me get there. If you want to REALLY learn how to skydive, come to XP. See you guys soon!

Jermaine White

Did my level 3,4, and 5 jumps in the psp program. Had an awesome time. Everyone was nice and laid back, but very knowledgeable. I look forward to spending a lot more time here once I’m licensed.. 5 stars all the way around.

Lindsay Romero

I originally came to Skydive Paraclete XP for a tandem in late July, they are phenomenal in keeping people calm taking their first jump, lots of jokes and distractions. After my first tandem, I took two more and am now in the A license course to get my own skydiving license. I have brought two family members here to jump because I truly trust these people and their skill level. If you want to go anywhere east of Greensboro to jump, THIS IS THE PLACE TO DO IT!!!

Christian Capobianco

Robbie and Luke were so great! Made me feel very comfortable and made my first tandem jump a lot of fun! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an adrenaline rush! Thanks so much to Robbie, Luke, and the entire Paraclete team for such a great experience!

Heather Porteous

As a member of the Canadian National 8-way skydiving team, we have trained at many DZs over the years. By far, we have never been treated as well at any other drop zone in the world. This is our new go to DZ. Cannot say enough good things about this operation!!!

Alice Laman Koontz

Experienced my first tandem jump 11/12/16 and can’t wait to do it again. Went with a fabulous group of friends. The staff was awesome, had to wait a while due to winds but that gave us time to visit.

Mike Capobianco

Brad was my tandem instructor, and Joe was my videographer. Both guys were fun to be around and did a great job. What really made me comfortable jumping was knowing the amount of experience Paraclete XP staff have.
Most guys are current and former SF and Airborne. I felt even if things got shaky, these guys would fix any problem. I plan on going back and getting some solo jumps in.

Coleen Courtney Mick

I did my fist tandem jump yesterday with Jon. It was one the best things I have ever done in my life. I wish to thank everyone there for their professionalism and yet you made it so much like being a part of team and a family.

Joey Shull

I loved everything about this place. The people, the experience, and can’t wait to return for another jump. Can’t recommend enough. Very professional. Thanks for helping me take one off the bucket list.

Melissa Lo Presto

I did my first tandem jump on 9/17/16. I had an awesome instructor Robbie who talked me through everything and made me feel great about jumping. He even had me laughing by telling me some jokes on the plane and we were singing a song. The experience was wild. The entire staff there was awesome. I am DEFINITELY going to be jumping again. You guys. ROCK!!!

Sarah Elizabeth Keith

Did my first tandem skydive 9/11/16 and it was amazing! The staff is incredible and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The drop zone gives you a breathtaking view and I will most definitely be back as soon as possible!

Kambua Chema

I loved the sense of family the school has…. I met this little guy Mason, who in 15 years will be an amazing skydiver….. Elliot and Robby were so amazing to my friends who were jumping…. I was tempted to jump too since everyone was so welcoming…. I’ll have to plan to come back and do my second here….

Kenneth Kanach

I had one the most amazing experiences and can’t wait to do it again. Carl was the Tandem jumper and Robbie was the Video guy, they were awesome and did there best helping me clear one of the items on my bucket list, thank you too all to help this dream come true.

Valerie James

Went on my 1st tandem skydive on 8/23/16 to celebrate my brother turning 50. I somehow messed up my order online & wasn’t going to receive a video package. All the staff was kind & helpful. With a small delay, they arranged for another diver to come & video. Amazing atmosphere & people! Skydived with Brad, he made this adventure a lot of fun. Sign up, you won’t regret it!

Julie Richard-Utz

Celebrated my birthday with my first jump, things were delayed due to winds which was fine with me. They kept everyone informed and knowing that our safety was number 1 made me even more relaxed. I had an amazing day.

Would do it again in a heartbeat and the video and photo package is worth every penny. Friendly and patient staff. Clean and pleasant facilities, organized and professional. You couldn’t ask for better.

Sara Lynn

I went on my first tandem skydive yesterday and I couldn’t ask for a better experience! The entire staff was friendly and helpful throughout the entire experience! My group had to reschedule our original jump due to the weather and the lady in the office was such a pleasure to work with. My whole group got video, which I strongly recommend! I loved watching my whole journey and looking through the 100s of pictures Robbie captured for me!

I can’t thank my tandem instructor, Jon, enough! He kept the mood light and entertaining while I was freaking out inside!!! After the jump, my group had adult beverages at the bar right at the bottom of the drop zone, which was the icing on the cake! If you’re looking for a fun experience with welcoming people you need to come check this place out. I look forward to going back for my second jump soon!
