In The Beginning

Skydiving at Pepperell Airport began in the late 1960's. The first commercial drop zone at Pepperell was opened in 1971 by Ted Strong of Strong Enterprises. Over the years a number of other owners kept the skydiving business going.


Present Day

In 1991 the current owner began running the operation and soon after Skydive Pepperell obtained a 22 place Twin Otter aircraft on a full-time basis.

The 60+ acre airport has been attentively groomed to provide a lush grassy landing area that is flat and free of obstacles. The Parachute Shop, which is located on-site, provides a climate controlled rigging loft and gear store for jumper convenience.

The dropzone is open seven days per week May through October. During other times of the year, the dropzone may be open dependent on weather.

PAC 750

The PAC 750 was created in the late 1990's by Pacific Aerospace Corporation (PAC). The PAC 750 was one of the first airplanes specifically engineered to meet the demands of skydiving operations, blending powerful performance with unparalleled safety features. Equipped with state-of-the-art avionics and safety systems, the PAC 750 represents the pinnacle of modern aerospace technology, ensuring that every jump is not just an adventure, but an unforgettable experience.
