Meet Chris Hall - Skydive KC's Owner
Chris Hall started skydiving in June of 1990. Having watched his father jump since the age of 2, it's safe to say that skydiving has been in Chris' DNA. It was no surprise to anyone that Chris would make a career in skydiving.
Also, Chris has been enamored with aviation and has been as passionate about flying planes as he has been jumping from them (a very rare combination).
Chris' love for skydiving accelerated to new heights when he made his first skydive at age 18. One could say that the day he jumped was when his life truly changed. Since that first jump, Chris has made more than 5,000 skydives! Of his 5,000 jumps more than 4,000 have been in the role as a camera flyer. On his 100th jump he started to film skydiving and he was hooked.
Chris has also picked up just about every skydivng rating one can have making him invaluable to his operation. Chris has earned his Static Line instructor rating, Sigma Tandem Instructor rating, AFF Instructor rating, S&TA (Safety and Training Advisor), PRO rated (exhibition skydiver rating), and is also a Multi-engine commercial pilot (over 1000 hrs flying skydivers) an A&P mechanic and FAA senior rigger.
It's clear to see why Chris strives to maintain one of the best skydiving center's in America. He's passionate about the sport and has made a career and commitment to growing the sport and his business.
Skydive Kansas City is a really great place to skydive whether you are a student or a fun jumper. They have an awesome staff and always make you feel welcome. The Tandem, AFF instructors plus the all the coaches are all top notch and professional. They have always made me feel at home and safe. The King Air aircraft is a huge plus also, takes you to 14,000 feet in about 10 minutes.
