Small DZ, best vibe ever

Skydive Danielson Rated 5 by: magalysandovalp on 2018-01-17

Pros: Friendlist staff in the planet
Cons: wind holds everynow and then

Don't let the small fool you, Skydive Danielson now jumps a Caravan, good turn times, great prices. The best thing about Danielson is by far the vibe.You will not find a better dz to hang, have fun and be safe than this in the area!

Coolest DZ in the country

Skydive Danielson Rated 5 by: john_baxter on 2018-01-17

Pros: Relaxed atmosphere and attitude
Cons: Have to try hard to find one

Positive vibe. Something you may not always find at every DZ, but you will find in abundance at Skydive Danielson. For me, it's what has set SDD apart from any DZ I have visited. Its not a coincidence that SDD has been rated "Best Small DZ in the Country" by Blue Skies magazine for 3 straight years. Everyone who visits the DZ or calls it home believes that. The owners are amazing and the staff is beyond courteous and professional. I can say with a degree of certainty that I may have left the sport of skydiving years earlier had I not discovered Skydive Danielson. Whether student or fun jumper, it is a "must visit" DZ.

Best skydiving center in New England

Skydive Danielson Rated 5 by: markchd on 2018-01-16

Pros: Great people!
Cons: Small Landing Area

First, it's a small skydiving center. You will be treated as an individual.

I was a student here, and they tailored everything to my needs. The course of instruction, from FJC on, was at my pace with no pressure to go faster.

The vibe is great! I was accepted at Skydive Danielson immediately. I had only been there for a month before Laura was letting me camp on the DZ. The people there want to like everyone. They'll give you shit, but only in fun.

It is a small skydiving center, and the landing area is as small as you'd expect. Respect the advice of the locals when you decide whether to go up.

Professional, safety first, a lot of fun!!

Skydive Danielson Rated 5 by: phuber66 on 2018-01-16

Pros: Great vibe for all ages, staff and fun jumper are all very friendly and engaging, Special on Wednesday and a great place
Cons: None

Secured my A and B licenses with Danielson, they keep you focused with clear and concise instruction before, during and after every jump. The entire team is focused on your success and having a great experience. I would highly recommend their tandem program to anyone want to make their first or annual skydive. All of the tandem instructor make sure every jumper has a great experience.

Excellent DZ with amazing people

Skydive Danielson Rated 5 by: Amatsis on 2018-01-16

Pros: Atmosphere, community, and instructors
Cons: Are not open year round (i want more!)

I had the pleasure of doing my first 3 tandems at Danielson (1 for fun, 2 for training). The staff at Danielson talked me through the jumps step by step and help me get calm and comfortable before exiting the plane.

I also completed my AFF course / A license at this drop zone. Every instructor that i was able to jump with was great, gave detailed instructions before our jumps, and informative debriefs after. I can also thank them for protecting me from myself, and not putting me into any situations that i was not prepared for.

I have nothing but praise for this DZ, and if you ever find yourself in the area its a must visit!

Also, this is no longer a small plane only DZ, they fly a Caravan now.
