High quality dropzone with something for everyone.

Parachute Montréal Skydiving Rated 5 by: lhmoulton on 2017-07-27

Pros: I think it is Canada's best dropzone, in all respects.
Cons: At the moment, costs about USD28 to 13.5, and that may go up if the exchange rate becomes less favorable for those with

I see it has been awhile since the last review of Parachute Montreal. I spent several days there over a few weeks this last month, and as far as I can tell, it is the “Perris of Canada.” Well, no swimming pool, but since it is only 75F there when it is 95F in southern California, who needs one!
The facilities are complete and impeccable, and their Otter is the most comfortable one I’ve ridden, with the benches against the fuselage so people can face each on the way up and have an easier exit.
I had no problem getting on loads—they have hired a master full-time organizer, Yves Morisset, who got me on various loads, and taught me some new tricks as well. It was right after the Canadian Nationals, so everyone was loose and ready to relax. My last day they had Pascal Blais organizing bigways (well, just medium-ways, 6-16, but later in the summer they start preparing for 40-way sequentials—I think a selection weekend, followed by an invitational one). I could tell people were genuinely pleased to see someone from the U.S. show up and appreciate their setup. My French is not bad, but everyone spoke enough English for an anglophone visitor to be safe and at ease.
Anyway, many people head down to Florida in the winter—why not head to Canada in the hot summer? Montreal is a fantastic city to visit, and this DZ is only 43 miles from the main airport (YUL), and even closer from the near side of Montreal.

Not the place to be

Parachute Montréal Skydiving Rated 2 by: uer16 on 2015-08-30

Pros: Aircraft, landing area, gear
Cons: Staff attitude

Disclaimer: I'm a traveling A-licensed newbie jumper with 100+ jumps, without own gear. My experience may not apply to you, take the review with a grain of salt.

After showing A card + logbook, went to get rental gear. Lady consulted the trusty Brian Germain's WL chart plastered on the wall, and decided to put me under a 200 sq. ft. canopy (I'm 150lb mind you). After a bit of talking and showing her that the majority of my jumps were under a 170, she finally let me jump a 170.

At the boarding area. I feel some movement on my back: some guy I've never seen before decided to mess around with my flaps, without any warning, let alone asking. He was giving a gear check apparently. I was so full of rage I could not talk, and was only able to give a death stare.

After plane arrived on a hot-load we had to wait >10m for the TMs to arrive (their students were waiting too).

In the plane I get chewed out for not having a jumpsuit (i.e. my tight fitting shirt that is pulled through the legstraps will somehow get over my handles and I will instantly die).

Get my rig molested again in the plane, this time with a heads-up, but without asking if I actually WANT a gear check or not.

Quoting the head honcho, "This is my dropzone and nobody will get hurt here under my supervision". This came off as arrogant, holier-than-thou attitude. People will get hurt eventually, doesn't matter how much you try to prevent that.

I jump for fun, and I did not have any at Parachute Montreal, this experience left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. Also a lot poorer after $70 jump tickets.

Regardless of my experience, this might still be a good place for the average skydiver. Awesome plane that climbs quick. Nice, big, green, segregated landing area with plenty of wind indication and targets.

Excellent dropzone for newbies, Amazing for freeflyers

Parachute Montréal Skydiving Rated 5 by: Joviea on 2013-06-20

Pros: The Twin, The Staff, The jumpers
Cons: it's close in winter... but that s ok

Did my Aff and 45 first jumps over there, Didnt't know how much I was spoiled until I travelled around!!!

You got amazing owners, staff and jumper ready to help you and jump with you for fun. The Twin Otter bring 25 jumpers, 18 run in a day if it's nice! There is most often then anything someone organizing a 10-way of something.

Most of all, the jumpers love to plan a jump and include flyers! If you talk to people, they will include you in their jump, or direct you to people of your level!

Nouvel air parachute may have more belly flyers, but Parachute Montréal got it for the freefly, and without a doubt for the parties!! Big fire, Camp for free, 24/7 showers, Amazing food for a DZ!

Enjoy it for me!

I had an amazing time!

Parachute Montréal Skydiving Rated 5 by: ss23 on 2013-05-22

Pros: The facilities, the staff, the atmosphere... etc!
Cons: None

Wow! I had a great experience at Parachute Montreal. The staff is very experienced and friendly, the landing area is large, the have a lot of facilities (rooms to rent, showers open 24/7, a snack bar, a bbq, twin otter aircraft, etc). Everything is clean and new. They have gear equipment that you can buy. They have a lots of events throughout the season for experienced and less-experienced skydivers.
It is my favorite dropzone so far!
