Atlanta is well known for many things: Six Flags, The Georgia Aquarium, The Atlanta Braves, Stone Mountain. But, did you know that just on the outskirts of the city lies a world-class skydiving facility operated by one of the most respected figures in skydiving. Interested in learning more? Keep reading for the inside scoop on Atlanta’s Best Kept Secret: Skydive Monroe.
Both Skydive Monroe and its owner are seasoned professionals when it comes to the skydiving industry. Skydive Monroe has been helping the citizens of Atlanta and its visitors to make their skydiving dreams a reality since 1993. You read that right: we have been helping make skydiving experiences possible for our customers in Atlanta for nearly 25 years! And, like a fine wine, in that time, we have established a legacy of excellence.
Not just anyone can keep a skydiving facility operating with success for the duration of 20+ years. Like any business, it takes expertise to achieve longevity. This kind of expertise isn’t developed overnight. Rather, it is the product of years of dedication. At Skydive Monroe, our success is, in part, a result of the passion and sagacity of the President and drop zone owner, Bill Scott.
Bill Scott has been involved with skydiving for quite a while and has over 37 years of skydiving experience under his belt. When Bill finally decided to open a drop zone 20 odd years ago, he sought to ensure it was a facility that was dedicated to the customer experience and would consistently be committed to safety. Since its inception, Skydive Monroe has kept these foundational intentions as tenets of its core values.
When it comes to the customer experience, Skydive Monroe is proud to offer our all of our visitors, jumpers, their well-wishers, and their families clean, well maintained facilities. Because we are passionate about sharing this amazing sport with the Atlanta community in a positive and professional way, we offer our customers an unparalleled experience. Unlike surrounding drop zones, our tandem students are taken to 14,000 feet in around 15 minutes by using one of the fastest birds in the skydiving industry: the King Air. Additionally, we offer our clients the opportunity to get it all on film with competitive video package pricing. With you the customer in mind, we aim to enhance your experience any way we can.
As a safety-first facility, Skydive Monroe keeps high standards in place. As President and Drop Zone Owner, Bill Scott requires that the skydiving staff at Skydive Monroe are certified professionals. We are proud to say all of our instructors have completed rigorous training and possess the appropriate credentials endorsed by the United States Parachute Association (USPA). When you are making a skydive two prime things come into play: the quality of the instructor and the quality of the equipment. At Skydive Monroe you can jump with confidence because all of the parachute equipment used by our students is routinely inspected and maintained by a USPA certified parachute rigger.
Time and time again it has been proven that a well-instructed skydiver makes for a safer skydiver. If learning to skydive is on your radar, it is worth it to look into training with Skydive Monroe. As Atlanta’s best-kept secret, Skydive Monroe offers the most advanced methods of training around: Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Tandem Progression.
We bet you didn’t know such a fine facility was right in your backyard! Speaking of ‘right in your backyard’…
Skydive Monroe, in part, is one of Atlanta’s best-kept secrets because it is the only skydiving location on the east side of Atlanta. While other facilities may close up shop and operate seasonally, in order to accommodate the busy schedules of customers, Skydive Monroe is open year-round.
We are here and ready to show you Atlanta’s best kept secret. All that is missing is you. What do you say? Are you ready to see what it’s all about?
