Re: [amihan07] What's the best skydiving school in the world? (if ever there is such a thing)
Where do you live?
You can go to the "best" school in the world (and that's going to be subjective at best, particularly considering that people will judge "best" on a wide variety of criteria).
But going through your initial skydive training is only a tiny fraction of what you need to grow to be a really good, safe skydiver. The overwhelming majority of what you'll learn to be that comes from 1) your own desire to learn and ask questions and seek knowledge (and willingness to absorb it) and 2) from the people that you'll be spending time with on the dropzone day in and day out and jumping with and learning from AFTER you get your license.
All that is a long-winded way to take you back to my first question. Where do you live? Find a quality dropzone within a reasonable drive from where you live. That place is most likely to become your home dropzone (or you may have multiple nearby options depending on where you live). Would you rather be the person they've seen from jump #1, getting to know everyone and making friends who are excited for you to get your license so they can jump with you? Or would you rather be the person no one on the dropzone knows who shows up with a brand-new A license from the "best" school in the world?
With few exceptions you should be able to find a good dropzone near you.
