Two DZs serve Vancouver: Pitt Meadows and Abbotsford.
You can take a city bus to within a mile of the Pitt Meadows Airport and Pacific Skydivers land on the municipal airport. The disadvantage of Pitt Meadows is that they only fly Cessnas.
Abbotsford may be farther out, but Horizon Aerosports operate off a private airstrip that is really closer to the Mission Bridge than it is to the city of Abbotsford. Abby' also has a collection of Cessnas, but they fly a Pilatus Porter on busy days.
Rob.. is the DZ over in Victoria even jumping. I had not heard anything from anyone over there in quite a while. I was thinking about heading over for a visit... but I have not been on the island for a while.
Oh.. and when I stopped in over on your side of the LINE last time.. US Customs at Sumas felt the need to do a wonderful full on inspection.. MAN do I hate bored people
vic has off-site landing... and pitt meadows has killer fun staff is transit accsesable and has a big plane (a king air but not sure if they're still running it) I say if you can stand the city hit pitt
