My husband gave me a lesson and jump for my birthday. the trainers were patient, knowladgeable and fun. You spend an hour or so going over rules, proceduress, etc. We went in a small group up and jumped tandem with an instructor. I paid for a video and picture, since I won't to it again- too many other things on... More

This was an AMAZING experience! I bought the Groupon that they had because I like to save money - especially on something that I have never tried before! I was able to make a reservation online rather easily. We also were able to watch videos and sign all the waivers online as well. I wasn't nervous at all until I... More

I would go again and again and again. Their first priority is your safety. Second is your comfort. Third is your experience. Great staff. HIGHLY recommend.

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
