Heaven: Todd Bell, former owner of Skydive Houston, is opening a new DZ called Skydive San Antonio. So he may have openings. Everyone praises his management skills!

Correct answer. Elsinore is how DZs should be run.

All of the posts are positive. I suspect that is because they were added by the kind of person who would be welcome at any DZ. When I hear someone maligning his/her current or former DZ/DZO, I'm usually not surprised considering the source. I know instructors who have been fired and/or incarcerated at every DZ at which they've ever worked. It seems that they have always been "surrounded by assholes." What a surprise!

Does that translate to a two year contract?

Correct answer. Elsinore is how DZs should be run.

Does Elsinore still have the rule for following the first man down?

If so, some would argue that this might not be the way all DZs should be run.

Funny thing is that some people do like working with Dause. I always say if you can work with Bill for over a year or two you can work with anyone.

It is almost a character building experience.Wink

I've seen the owner of Skydive Hawaii call the cops on his own instructors just because they wanted a past due pay check.
