Home of the first commercial skydiving center in the United States, Jumptown is New England's flagship dropzone with a rich history in the sport of skydiving. We are a full-service facility offering tandem skydiving for first-time jumpers, unique learn to skydive programs and special rates for experienced skydivers.
Jumptown is operated by the Massachusetts Sport Parachute Club, a not-for-profit organization that exists solely for the promotion and enjoyment of skydiving and sport parachuting. It doesn't mean that skydiving is a perfectly safe sport - It's not! It doesn't mean that skydiving is a sport for everyone - It isn't! What it means is that we are a group of jumpers who care about the sport and want to share the experience with others in a careful, controlled manner. Located in Orange, MA, Jumptown is an ideal destination for skydiving Boston, Amherst and New England.
At Jumptown, you are trained in the risks and rewards of becoming a skydiver, be it just for a once in a lifetime experience or a path to self-development. Regardless of what path you choose, you will be a well-informed student and will feel confident putting your trust in our experienced Instructors hands.
If you think you want to try skydiving, there is no better place to do it.

The thought of skydiving is a hundred times scarier than the process of actually doing it. That's no surprise--your imagination has a lot of fuel to cook up a crazy story about what a skydive is going to feel like; what might happen; how it's gonna go.
