Seeking Info on Incident Reporting
Hey guys! Maybe this is the wrong forum to post this, but it seemed to be the most fitting. I jump at a fairly large dropzone that has a lot of military training going on throughout the year. In the time I have been jumping there, I have heard of a few incidents and witnessed a few as well. My question is, why do I see and hear about these things, yet I never see them reported here or in Parachutist? Can anyone offer some insight on why this is so?

The military does their own very thorough accident investigations, and do not answser to dropzone.com or USPA. You can send the military branch a freedom of information act request to get a copy of their investigations.
I had no idea that there were these issues with the BOD. Does the military do reports on non-military incidents as a practice or just in certain circumstances like when they're involved in studies such as the Dual Square Report? Also, Pops, this wasn't meant to be a political discussion, just an inquiry into why there appears to be such a fair amount of reporting from some DZs and little, if any, from others.
P.S. When I said "regulates", I mean to the extent that the BSRs are regulation. Not necessarily in the FAR sense of the word.
