SLOAN KANAT

My parents started skydiving when I was about 4 years old, so I grew up your typical dropzone kid. I was packing pilot chutes and helping out with manifest before I hit double digits. Unfortunately, no matter how much I begged and pleaded with our DZO and parents, I had to wait until I was 18, like the rest of the skydiving community, to make my first jump. I always knew I was going to skydive and wanted to be just like my parents. On my 18th birthday I had the opportunity to do my first tandem surrounded by my friends and family… my parents got to fly next to me on my tandem. Later that day I got to do my first AFF jump with my dad as one of my instructors. The 14 year wait to jump was definitely worth it when I got to share those first jumps with my parents.

Flash forward a few years and a few hundred jumps later and here I am. Completely in love with the sport and all the people that come with it. I am the Sun Path sales rep for our DZ’s dealership and love selling Javelins and Curvs and getting my learn about new gear. I am looking to get my coach rating this season and have hopes of starting to fly video soon. My little sister recently got her A-license and our family gets to do 4-way belly jumps together! I love getting to jump as a family and see my little sister improve and learn on every jump we do. Skydiving has changed my life and I am so grateful every day that I get to experience human flight with some of the greatest people I’ve ever met!

More About Sloan Kanat

I never really learned how to walk in flip flops. I always trip over myself and it’s super embarrassing if I have to wear them.
