Skydive New England Rated 5 by: MEMary on 2015-08-07

Pros: Location, friendly and professional staff, and amenities
Cons: NE weather changes in a heartbeat

Second tandem in August '15, now planning to begin AFF in the late spring/early summer '16. Arrived for this jump at 7:30, jumped at 10 (fine since so many people were there for earlier jumps). TM was kind, professional, and made the jump fun. I chose no video for second jump as I wanted to enjoy the view. TM made this happen by gently gliding through the sky and pointing out the scenery.

Hoping to jump in Tampa in spring and complete AFF to return to Skydive NE as a solo.

Had an awesome time!

Skydive New England Rated 4 by: jumpher10 on 2011-10-13

Pros: Beautiful area, Private airport. Facilities
Cons: cliquey, some staff need to relax and smile more

I went to SNE for the first time ever, it was during the Tiki Bar boogie. First off I was impressed with the facilities when I first arrived. It seemed like a really fun place. My first of 2 complaints, is that upon registration for the boogie, t-shirts werent a part of the package. I'm just wondering what I paid for? Yea yea, the booze, but other than that? The partying at night had lived up to the hype that I had been hearing for the past couple years. It was pretty awesome. But be careful, I've heard of girls choosing not to attend this boogie anymore b/c they feared for there safety. I'm not surprised, I witnessed some drunks have no boundaries. So if you want the chicks to keep coming, settle down a little people(not sure how much of this is really the DZs fault). My other complaint is that it felt very cliquey there. Some people didn't seem to inviting of others in there group of jumpers or just in general conversation. I watched this happen a few times, even to me. High five to manifest! Nice job! Don't let my feedback fool you, I did have a great time! I'll deff be back. Best wishes to Carp!

I'm one of the DZO's

Pros: The Place is like heaven
Cons: They dont have 12 months of summer

Mr. Deathwish with 42 jumps probably will not be a skydiver very long if He has any complaints about our kick*** DZ. And "leashed" dogs are always we welcome (so you dont have to land in landmines). We let the women run free.
Toughen up Phenelope.

Pros: awsome view, easy to locate your landing, even if U R far away ! Nice nite life !
Cons: NOT A DOG FRIENDLY ANYMORE, short season and a weather is changing so quick...

My AFF was a little sloppy, cause every jump I made was with a different instructor, and the landing area is full of surprizes, which gives you another reason to work on your accuracy!!! The rigging service is a little slow, and you have to go there and get on their asses about it, and it looks like they dont care, and you always have to wait: for food, bathroom, showers, loads...
So if you coming here, leave your dogs at home, bring your own gear and be patient, very patient...May have some ups and downs but its my home DZ and I like jumping here, when my dog is not around...

My First Skydive

Skydive New England Rated 5 by: deathmoon on 2009-10-28

Pros: Excellent staff, great training
Cons: n/a

I took Level 1 AFF at SNE and the entire staff was excellent! The jump was great, the time that was spent as part of the debrief was phenomenal. Great place, close to home, great people.
