Once you land and collect your thoughts on this life changing experience, you might want to become a licensed skydiver yourself. At Skydive Pepperell we are dedicated to the advancement of skydiving as a sport, and our instructors can further guide you towards your goals.


What To Expect:

Upon arrival at your scheduled check in time, you will begin the training process by first watching a video explaining everything you will experience. Please make sure to bring your photo ID along with comfortable activewear clothing and laced sneakers. After the video and paperwork are completed, you can relax in our comfortable waiting area until your name is called. Please plan accordingly to stay for half the day potentially, as weekends can get busy.

Your instructor will introduce him/herself and begin to train with you one on one. Before you board the aircraft, you will have an understanding of how to position your body during exit, freefall, and landing. You will also be shown the state of the art equipment being used to ensure you safety.

A staff member will fit you with a harness and your instructor will make all the necessary adjustments before you board. As you climb to your exit altitude of 10,500 feet, you will continue to receive instructions. Now comes the thrill of your life. After about 45 seconds of pure freedom in freefall, your instructor will open the parachute. You get to enjoy 3 to 4 minutes of serenity, enjoying the New England landscape from a vantage point only few have seen. Your instructor will then safely pilot you to the landing area where you will have a soft landing.
