Like many, Travis' first skydive was a Tandem skydive. After that first taste of flight, he knew the sport of skydiving was something he wanted to share and teach to everyone. Travis is a D licensed skydiver and has earned his Coach, Tandem, and AFF Instructor ratings from the United States Parachute Association.
“Step out of your comfort zone”

Hi! Name is Al and I started skydiving in 2017. I have been throwing myself out of anything that flys since! My day job outside of working here at Crystal Coast Skydiving is to fix things that fly (Aviation Mechanic)
Other things I enjoy are late night short walks to the fridge multiple times to get my snack on half asleep, acting like I know how to surf, fishing without ever catching a damn thing and playing guitar.
I hope that your journey to the skies with us here has the same affect on your life as it did mine! The art and pure joy of body flight is second to none. Blue skies🤘🏻
