If you're going skydiving for the first time for the tandem jump, be prepared to wait. Also the weather can mess you up big time. The day we went to jump we had to reschedule because the winds were too strong. We were given a rain check and we went the next day in the off chance we got to... More

Great experience at Connecticut Parachutist. Everyone here is very friendly and professional. I was a little nervous at first but with the encouragement from my friend Andrew and all the divers I felt safe. I could tell that everyone knew what they were doing and had safety as a concern at all times. There were a couple things if that... More

I just went to Connecticut Parachutists Inc. today and it was absolutely incredible. As soon as I entered the employees made me feel so welcome. Due to cloudy weather conditions the schedule was backed up by about 4 hours so we had a pretty long wait but it was totally worth it. It was a fun location to just sit... More

I was petrified the first time I did a tandem jump at Ellington five years ago at age 59. Since then, however, I've gone back every year to do a jump and intend to jump for the sixth time this summer. One of my sons has done three tandems at Ellington. One of the best times was last year when... More

This place did nothing but waste 4 of my friends and my time. We had a "reservation" for 1:30 in the afternoon. We got there 15 minutes early like the website says to and waited to do nothing. Once we got there we filled out some paperwork and that was it. Nobody came to talk to us, so we went... More

Experience couldn't have been WORSE!!! I should have known how the day was going to go when we missed the turn to go down their "drive way" because their sign was no more than a piece of plywood with their name painted on it. It was a good thing my car was all wheel drive because this "drive way" is... More

I've always wanted to jump out of an airplane (I know, why jump from a perfectly good airplane?) and a co-worker told me about a place in Ellington, Ct. at the Ellington Airport. It was a jump club called Connecticut Parachustists Inc. We called them up, went up to the drop zone and found the best group of people there,... More
