The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's deal: for $149, you get a tandem skydive jump from Connecticut Parachutists, Inc. in Ellington (up to a $235 value).

Connecticut Parachutists takes jumpers more than 10,000 feet in the air, said to be far higher than the average student drop zone. With a tandem jump, you'll experience nearly 60 seconds of exhilarating free fall while safely tethered to a USPA-certified, experienced instructor. Experience Newton's laws firsthand as you reach speeds of up to 120 mph. Breathtaking views of the geographic splendor and celebrity-shaped crop circles below, coupled with unbeatable access to cloud conversations, make for a truly memorable experience.

Tandem jumps are a safe and easy introduction to the world of skydiving. Training sessions generally last less than 30 minutes before students are propelled into the wild blue in a twin-turbine Super Otter aircraft. Bring a friend for moral support or to conclude an ultimate game of Truth or Dare.

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.

The staff was great and efficient. I was able to ride up on the flight with some of the jumpers from the UCONN parachute team, which was neat. The instructor Justin I was attached to was awesome. Felt safe and comfortable under is instruction. I would totally recommend this experience.
