Though children are taught to reach for the sky, in time it becomes apparent that jumping out of the sky is more practical. Inform your inner child with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get a tandem skydive at Skydive Pepperell.

Skydive Pepperell swoops landlubbers up 10,500–13,000 feet for an adrenaline-pumping day of aeronautical capriciousness. Dressed in comfortable clothes, sneakers, and their autographed Batman capes, future fliers learn the intricacies of skydiving equipment from a certified expert and watch instructional videos to prep for the big leap. From there, jumpers climb into a sprightly Twin Otter plane, where they are safely anchored to an experienced partner before the plane door slides open to release the pair into the blue yonder. Since the airspace caters only to skydiving excursions and novelists skywriting their latest books, patrons can free-fall comfortably through the vacant horizon at 120 mph for up to one full minute. Once the parachute deploys, tandem divers glide through the air, relishing the mountainous New England countryside for five–seven minutes. Skydive Pepperell’s manicured fields encourage a soft landing, whether it’s a slow standup, seated glide across the grass, or impromptu moonwalk.

Skydive Pepperell

At Skydive Pepperell, USPA– and state-licensed and certified instructors acquaint adventurers with the thrill of riding gravity back to the earth's crust. Skydive Pepperell's private, skydiving-only airport claims more than 60 acres for soaring steel birds at heights of 10,500 feet above ground. Neophyte fliers, harnessed to professionals for tandem jumps, leap from the belly of a DeHavilland DHC-6 Twin Otter and indulge in trendy cloud diets on their way down to the safe, grassy landing area. Daredevils who thrive on the thrum of adrenaline can enroll in accelerated free-fall training, which drills students in the skills necessary for a solo dive. Jumpers can also purchase a DVD and digital stills that show them soaring through the sky. Meanwhile, spectators watch jumps from the open landing area, confident in Skydive Pepperell's impeccable safety record.

Customer Reviews

Some of the people weren't the most friendly and you have to wait there for three and a half hours before you jump but overall it was a ton of fun.

The staff is amazing and we had a great time.

My friend and I went for our 30th birthdays and it was the first time for us both. We were very nervous but our instructors (Luciano and Ron) were great and made the whole experience absolutely awesome. We'll definitely be back again!
