COME MAKE YOUR FIRST SKYDIVEConnecticut Parachutists, Inc. offers tandem skydiving to introduce students into the solo training programs. It is the most exciting and safest method for training someone to make their first jump. Training generally takes less than 30 minutes, and, depending on a number of variables, a student may spend only half a day for the training and the jump. Both the student and the instructor are attached to the same parachute system. They freefall together from up to 2 miles above the earth. After the parachute is open they descend together under a single large parachute with dual controls. Enjoy the fantastic view with your feet dangling over 4,000 ft. in the air! Connecticut Parachutists, Inc. uses the most advanced equipment for student jumping. Being a club allows us to invest large amounts of money into our equipment, leaving us with only the best and newest equipment available to students.

"April 20th, 2004…this date is printed in my mind for ever, a week ago I made my 1st tandem-jump! I can't stop thinking about it. A mix of wonder and fright, we can't find this feeling anywhere else. Millions thanks to Jim Hoke, he made me feel so comfortable and confident, love you Jim! Hope you'll be there for my next jump, you're the best! Florence Vailhen from St-Donat, QC, Canada "
