Skydiving- Connecticut


I thought I would pass this on. It is from the website of one of the local skydive companies.

“In the recent years many different websites have popped up offering skydiving gift certificates and attempting to book reservations for skydiving in your area. In fact they are the same 1800Skyride company based in Atlanta, Georgia attempting to represent a nationwide skydiving corporation with many locations, including one near to you. They make claims to have the highest skydiving safety record, use the best equipment, have been serving the local area for a long time, offer the least expensive skydive, and have the closest jumping location to metropolitan areas. However, these websites are actually nothing more than the same middle man or skydiving reservation agency which costs you money. Be leery of their many misrepresentations!

To help you determine if a website represents an actual skydiving center:
Does the website provide a business address for the drop zone?
Does the website provide any evidence of first time jumpers as their clients? such as videos, testimonials with date and names.
Does the website include specific information about their facilities such as which airport, lounges or type of runways?
Does the website claim to be a National Skydiving Association (NSA) participating skydiving center? The NSA is fictional.”

As far as I know, I have not included any listings from this company but be aware. -Steve
