About Us

Who We Are

A word from our owner – Fred Cotreau

“I started jumping after being invited to ‘jump out of a perfectly good airplane’ with a college buddy at the end of the 1980’s. It would be hard to list my favorite things about the sport of skydiving and it’s community that I have experienced since then but I think Skydive New England is one of the few American drop zones that is the true essence of what it means to be called ‘A Skydiver.’

I was a long time customer of this special place long before I ever considered being an owner. I hope you enjoy yourself as much as I do and stick around for a while. It’s our job to show you a great time, and we take our jobs very seriously whether  it’s your first jump or your 1000th.”

What a rush! This was the highlight of my time in New England.
The team at  SkyDive New England were amazing at making me feel relaxed (or as relaxed as you can be before you jump out of plane).
Nestled in the heart of the NE region, the views are amazingly breath taking, and the service exceptional and efficient.
From a $$$ perspective SkyDive New England represents probably the best value for money of any skydiving company in the US. I felt that it was cheap for what i was getting and even had my jump filmed and edited.

Thank you for the most amazing experience.
