About Skydive Kapowsin

Jessie Farrington was jumping out of planes before she could even drive a car. That's what Mrs. Farrington—who owns Skydive Kapowsin alongside husband Geoffrey—told ThurstonTalk.com in 2013. "I was 15 when I first dove out, and I was afraid, flat out afraid.” But nerves couldn't silence a passion for skydiving that runs deep into the roots of the Farrington family tree, whose branches sag with the weight of dangling parachute packs. Jessie's father opened Skydive Kapowsin in 1971, and now her son Andy and nephew Luke help out as instructors—at least when they're not touring as members of the Red Bull Air Force team or diving alongside Jessie and Geoffrey in major motion pictures such as Iron Man 3.

At Skydive Kapowsin's Jump Center, the Farringtons train the future stars of the skydiving world. A walk through this massive facility reveals classrooms, a rigging room, and a media room. Here and in the air, instructors guide students as they work through an AFF program's 25 jumps—a process that takes a person from novice to solo skydiver. The aptly named Jumper's Cafe serves up sandwiches between these lessons, while a licensed massage therapist works onsite to ease any pre-jump jitters.

It doesn't take weeks inside the Jump Center to feel the rush of skydiving, however. All that's required is 15 minutes of training and a tandem jump from the belly of a twin turbine plane. From an altitude of 13,000 feet, experts escort adventurers on an intense free-fall through a panorama of the Washington landscape—from the South Sound to Mt. Ranier—and birds-eye views of ground squirrels' holes.
