"Thanks again for all the great experiences and can't wait to get back there next season!"
To all the staff at Jumptown,
Carl Christy and Alex Friello here just wanted to send an email saying thanks for a great start to our skydiving careers! We did the AFF camp in August and came back a handful more times to continue our progress with our AFF classes and overall skydive licenses. Alex is currently at the D1 level and I'm currently at the C2 level, and unfortunately it looks like the season is coming to a close soon due to the weather but we plan to be back plenty of times next year as soon as the season starts up again!
We can't wait to get back to our classes as well as spending more time with the great staff up at Jumptown and plan to camp out there for many weekends in the 2013 season. We will be in contact sometime in March to find out when you guys open again and when we can continue our AFF courses and eventually earn our A licenses.
Thanks again for all the great experiences and can't wait to get back there next season!
Carl and Alex
"I just wanted to be sure I expressed my sincere thanks for a wonderful experience!"
I did my first skydive last Saturday, 9/15 and it was awesome! By the time I landed, however, I was a bit motion sick, so I don't honestly remember if I gave a final "thank you" to my Tandem Master, Joe Goodbrake and my Videographer, Matt. So if I didn't, I want to say THANK YOU! You both were so reassuring and made me feel very comfortable, setting my nerves at ease and making my experience fun! Despite my motion sickness upon landing and being a bit out of it, I thoroughly enjoyed the skydive. I may even want to do one more jump at a later time, this one being at sunset! I've heard it's very beautiful to witness from the air.
Anyway, I just wanted to be sure I expressed my sincere thanks for a wonderful experience!
A Satisfied Customer,
"Thank you for a life changing experience today! Highly highly recommend to everyone interested in jumping!"

"If you think you want to try skydiving, there is no better place to do it."
Before the facility at Orange Municipal Airport was acquired, the group of jumpers who began it had a clubhouse and planes at Turners Falls Airport, Massachusetts. The years I spent there were some of the best years of my life; and the staff at Jumptown are their descendants. They carried over the same spirit that made Turners Falls and jumping a cherished lifetime memory. If you think you want to try skydiving, there is no better place to do it. Leon Malinofsky, D-10630.
"Truly excellent... The actual dive was amazing - my only complaint was that it went so fast!"
Truly excellent. I was given this jump as a surprise bday present, but on my actual birthday the wind was too extreme. They gave us a rain check - we just called and the friendly staff made space for us the next day! I did not feel afraid at all - Joe, the instructor I jumped tandem with, was so nice and competent. All the instructors I met had been diving for a decade or more with 2,000+ jumps under their belts. After meeting them and having everything explained in the class I felt really ready and comfortable. The actual dive was amazing - my only complaint was that it went so fast! Will definitely be back, hopefully to learn to dive solo!!
"The Staff at JumpTown is as proffesional as it gets....Thank you so much jumptown and especially thank you to Bry for helping make my dream become a reality."
The Staff at JumpTown is as proffesional as it gets. I was soo soo scared to jump but have always wanted to i would not classify myself as an extreme sports enthusiast even. The day we jumped i was with a group of 11 others some first jump virgins others seasoned jumpers we had a beautiful day and an experience of a lifetime. Every member of staff at Jumptown was extreamly courtious and thorough. I was matched up with Bry as my Tandem jump buddy. He sensed how nervous I was and went above and beyond to ensure i had the experience of a lifetime. I cannot wait to jump again and rest assured it will absolutly be here. I wouldnt recommended anyone but these guys for your first jump. Thank you so much jumptown and especially thank you to Bry for helping make my dream become a reality.
"Best skydiving in the area!"
If you want a skydiving adventure of a lifetime, you MUST put Jumptown on your bucket list! With the experienced instructors and staff, you are in safe hands. Go to Jumptown .....you will be in for the tandem ride of your life!
"I was understandably nervous prior to arriving and left wanting to turn this one time bucket list experience into a hobby!"
My boyfriend and I went skydiving for the first time Friday, it was an unforgettable experience. I was understandably nervous prior to arriving and left wanting to turn this one time bucket list experience into a hobby! The whole entire staff is so friendly and welcoming, which makes it near impossible to be nervous in such a positive environment. Big thanks to everyone involved, I sincerely think Jumptown is the ideal place to go skydiving,
"I was psyched to have Zack again!"
We scheduled a long weekend getaway so we could skydive, white water raft, and zip line. Found a great house to stay in, and we were in! Arrive July 28th with myself, daughter Rachel and her two friends Sam and Carol. Girls couldn't wait to turn 18 to jump out of an airplane. We got to Jumptown and were welcomed by all, including their dogs. Went into a class with Fred to listen to the Bearded Wonder about how we were signing our lives away and we can't hold them responsible for anything! Oh Boy! After class, we are introduced to four gentlemen, Zack, Joe, Dan and Fred (our teacher). They came with their side kick photographers. (I have to apologize, I only remember my photographers name, Collin.) These guys were amazing. Kept us laughing, entertained...all the way up to 13,500 ft (2 1/2 miles), so that we could fall out of a perfect airplane. It all happened so fast leaving that plane, that if I wanted to change my mind........too late.
Came back on August 18 with two friends, Reese and Alex, that couldn't join us the first time. I was phsyched to have Zack again! Rachel had Mark, Reese had Fred and Alex was paired with Eric. Oh my....Alex knew that Eric was messing with him, but I think deep down, he was questioning things. Again, another truly successful trip. My favorite part of this one was Reese who bragged all day long that she was perfect calm. That scream certainly didn't sound so calm to me, but the photo of her is worth a million!
Thank you to all you folks at Jumptown!
We had an incredible time x two.
"All the staff were professional and reassuring and they made us feel very comfortable!"
We want to say thank you to Cameron and Cam for a great 1st time experience! You both were awesome! Tim the photographer did a great job as well! All the staff were professional and reassuring and yet made us feel very comfortable! It was so much fun! I'm glad Cameron didn't tell me I was his first tandem. Well done!!!
