Testimonial

Jezza approached us to challenge us to take a look at our operations and improve them to become more adaptable and inclusive. We have since worked together to constantly provide the most personal experience, tailored to the needs of people with different levels of physical abilities right here in Canterbury. Our harness system, which was developed with the guidance of and tested by Jezza, makes flight & landing safe and the whole experience both exciting and comfortable! As a team, we have developed a better understanding of the needs of the clients that Makingtrax refers to us throughout the years which means that we have become better instructors and a more inclusive skydiving center. Makingtrax is not just a great company; it is also inspiring a shift in adventure tourism. Why would you not want to be a part of that?!
