Skydiver's in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island tend to not jump as much over the winter as we do over the summer.

Skydiving centers around the US all host an annual Safety Day. Join us at Skydive Danielson as we review important safety issues and get back to the basics in regards to gear checks and landing patterns.
