The MIT Skydiving Club provides opportunities for members of the MIT community to get involved with skydiving and promotes the sport on campus. The MIT Skydiving Club was founded in 1957 and is actually one of the oldest university skydiving clubs in the United States.

The purpose of the club is three-fold:

  • Provide a network for experience skydivers to meet each other, jump with each other, and compete for MIT
  • Mentor beginner skydivers through completing their license requirements and encourage their further participation in the sport
  • Facilitate members of the MIT community in making their first tandem skydive.

Club membership is open to all MIT students, staff, faculty, and affiliates, as well as to members of the Cambridge and Boston community.

The MIT Skydiving Club jumps at Skydive Pepperell located in Pepperell, MA and Jumptown in Orange, MA.
