If you didn't flew the Beach18, you need to go more often! Google it if you don't know what it is :)

Amazing dropzone with load of belly flyers! Often organise big loads and home of Evolution Team! Camping site, shower, nice food, but mostly, A real nice and confy Twin Otter to bring you in the sky often in a day!

If you wanna jump near montreal, best place to be for Belly flyers. Freefly and drinking would be more Parachute Montreal, but you ll find some here too!

If you can ride the beach, go for it! Only dropzone I know still running one!

The management puts a lot of emphasis on training and certification. They are capable of handling large parachutist meets. Lots of expertise available.

It was the DZ for 2012 Misson 100. It been successful because of the implication of every body on the dropzone, from the manifest to the load organizers ! Specialy Martin Lemay, who was leading the event as a master. The facilities on the DZ, and the location, were perfect for it. The owners where friendly and very into it, being close to the participants.

The DZ has change from the past when the day was over after the last tandem... Last year, there was load organizing, with pros, even when it was not a preparation for Mission 100. I guess they will continue that way !

This year, I spent a few weekends at Nouvelair. That's where I did my first two jumps of the season, I didn't know the DZ, the staff there and they welcomed me as if I was part of regular :). The staff is friendly, accessible and generous with their knowledge. A nice place to pack INSIDE with air-conditioned! If you want to do quality jump with coaching it's the place to be.

The host dropzone of the successful 102-way Canada Record big way skydive!

They recently had an amazing Mission 100 big way event, the Canada Record big way Skydive event, (happened to be Friday 13th, July 13, 2012). I participated in the big way attempts, and the dropzone vibe has changed significantly. This 102-way successful record blew past the old 59-way record.

In the past, they seems to have had a somewhat high priority on tandems, but it seems to have changed, especially with the recent rise of Skyventure Montreal (first Skyventure in Canada, very closely affilated with the Lemays -- Canada's 4-way Team Evolution from Nouvel-Air) and the growing pool of experienced skydivers. I'd give them a try, it's a lot of fun during a good boogie event or big way camp that they do more often now. They have now become the big way central of Canada.
