After about 30 minutes of training, a prop plane carries skydivers to about 2 miles above the earth for tandem jumps. Harnessed together, USPA-certified instructors and students depart from the airplane and freefall at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour. The parachute then opens, and dual controls guide divers as they take in scenic views and mouthfuls of mashed-potato clouds from more than 4,000 feet above the ground.

Connecticut Parachutists, Inc

Since 1962, the experienced and USPA-certified instructors at Connecticut Parachutists, Inc have helped new and experienced skydivers foster a love for skydiving. Two miles above the plush green landing area, the professionals harness themselves to novice divers for tandem jumps, and then leap from the bellies of prop planes as spectators and envious penguins look on from an open landing area. The instructors can also help their students obtain skydiving certification, learn to perform accelerated free falls, and make solo dives.

In addition to training new cloud kickers, Connecticut Parachutists, Inc also accommodates seasoned skydivers with facilities for members. Their turbine Twin Otter elevates members for as many jumps as possible, and a clubhouse helps jumpers wind down with a shower and video debriefing area. The skydiving haven also plays host to special events such as jump nights and Q&As with famous parachutes.
