AAF in New England
I just wanted to get the opinions of community on AFF within the Southern New England Area. I am trying to do nearly as much research as possible before I go diving in and out of the sport. Advice is welcomed.
Guess those things called questions are elusive. What do people feel for both instruction and experience of the MA AFF schools such as Jumptown or Newbury or Pepperell?

Skydive New England is great... We have the best parties too!! Not sure if anywhere in NE is open over the winter but you could always get to the tunnel over the winter and start AFF next year... Hope to see you in April!!

You can't go wrong at Jumptown.
In my opinion they have one of the best student programs around. They don't just pump out graduated AFF students, they stick with you from the first jump course, through AFF, till you get your license, and beyond.
Their instructors and coaches are all top notch. They will turn you into a proficient and safe skydiver.
It is a great place to hang out. Their Twin Otter is awesome, their hanger and facilities are really sweet.
There is a real sense of community at Jumptown, you really feel like you belong there, regardless of experince or jump numbers.

It all depends on your budget, and where you want to travel to jump. However, a suggestion about skydiving, in the winter months, you can try the wind tunnel, and learn to fly before AFF. Good luck!. and blue skies.
