My name is bryan B I moved to boston in oct 09 and shortly found my self at this dropzone, from the moment I walked up to manifest everyone is hey who are you... welcome to the dz...... come jump with us...... I never have been to a dropzone like that in my life just so truly friendly and helpful.. the packers all the way up to the owner are super smart and can answer almost any question about skydiving tandems, aff, or any thing you can think of....... now as far as safety goes, THEY ARE THE ALPHA DOG HERE their tandem and aff instructors are amazing and super safe, I've watched the packers inspect each tandem rig every time they pack it,

I would have no problem sending friends and family to this dropzone to do tandem skydives or aff or just to hang out .... if you have a car and a parachute get your butt on the higway to this DZ
if you want to learn to skydive get in the car and get to this dropzone

I can promise you a fun exciting time, its not like any other dropzone I have been to because everytime I jump here I feel like I'm with my family!!!!!


BEST DROPZONE EVER!!!!!

Flew up from Ga up for the CASA boogie, had a blast! Nice DZ, friendly people, good location and scenery, efficient manifest and fast packers even though they were swamped.

However, please PLEASE get more than 1 shower!!!! Especially for a boogie with loads of campers! We intended to camp at the DZ but ended up paying for a local hotel as there was only 1 shower on the DZ and you can only use it between 9pm and 6am so basically you couldn't :)

I was 40 min away on business and thought I would just drive down to check it out not intending on jumping. I was late in the day in the middle of the week at the very begining of the season. The drive out was awesome (From Texas). I rolled up saw the Otter and 206's and got excited. The people that were there were wonderful and after showing them my skydiving credentials, they they wanted to get a load up and they had good rental gear sooooo....how could I pass it up. It was awesome, They were hella friendly and let me borrow all the gear I needed. We rocketed up in the 206 (on steroids)and I go the tour all the way up. You could clearly see all of Boston MA, Manchester NH, Cap Cod...It was way cool. We had an awesome dive and a scenic Canopy ride. As I said before I'll be back!!!

I've just passed by Peperell, MA last thursday, we were on the road with a friend and decided to do some fun jumps : what a welcome. only 15 minutes after we get there we were on the otter load, climbing in the air.
the people there were really cool ones, helpful for 2 losts tourists and hell : if the weather's bad ... you're just 10 minutes from Skyventure NH .

the landing area is wide enough to allow a lot of jumpers finding their way safely to the ground. there are also quite numerous «plan B» landing zones ... just in case ;)

2 Thumbs up Peperell, you'll see me again for sure !

I have become a huge fan of this family friendly drop zone! I have made friends with most of the people that frequent Pepperell to toss themselves out of planes! I enjoyed my tandem with Alex (the Crazy Russian) so much that I made my friend Kail(e) come down and now he is 14 jumps into his AFF! Living only 10 minutes from Pepperell and 2 minutes from the new Sky Venture in Nashua makes my new favorite past time the greatest experience of my life. If it wasn't for the coaching I have received from Dave and Bill than I wouldn't still be skydiving today! Thank you Skydive Pepperell! Everyone should visit this DZ at least once to enjoy the huge landing area surrounded by trees and friendly people! Blue Skies!
