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.”
