Set aside enough time for your skydiving adventure - your estimated time spent at our facility factors in potential weather delays. Weather delays are always a possibility. While we do our best to accommodate customers, please be prepared to be flexible in regards to time spent at the facility as well as the potential for rescheduling appointments. If we are not skydiving due to weather it is because it is unsafe to do so - your safety is our first priority.
Time Spent at the Skydive Center
After checking in for your skydiving appointment, please set aside:
Your skydive is broken down into three main parts - airplane ride, free fall and parachute ride.
When it is your turn to jump we will put a harness on you and introduce you to your instructor. Once everyone on your airplane is ready to go, you will board the plane together. Your guests will be able to watch as the airplane takes off and flies upwards to 14,000 ft.
We have a large, turbine aircraft known as a Caravan 208. Enjoy the beautiful scenery as we fly over The Last Green Valley. See nearby cities such as Hartford, Providence and sometimes Boston!
Skydive Danielson is all about the altitude. Enjoy the longest, most extreme skydive you can get. Our airplanes fly as high as 14,000 ft. which means you will free fall for 60 seconds!
When we reach our destination altitude 2 miles high in the sky our instructors will open the airplane door. Adrenaline, surrealism and craziness kick in as you look out the open door! Get ready because before you know it, you will be skydiving. Keep your eyes open, smile and hold on!
At 5,000 ft. your instructor will deploy the main parachute. Your instructor and you will fly around under the main parachute for about 5-7 minutes as you soar back down to Earth. Want to fly the parachute? Just ask your instructor! They'll hand you the steering reigns and let you go wild!
Yell, scream, jump up and down, kiss the ground - do whatever it is you need to do to expel the excitement that you just experienced! Landing from your first skydive makes you feel like a warrior. Walk off the landing field with a new sense of accomplishment, nothing in life can stop you now! You will receive a certificate of achievement.
