Jump Tickets Prices Can't Post

I recently went to a new DZ and they were charging $27 (maybe $28) for 12000ft. I was wondering what is the most expensive jump ticket you've seen at at DZ in the USA?

Not US but here in Canada, it's been $35 ever since I started. It was $35 including tax, but as of 2 years ago, it is now $35+tax. Works out to a grand total of $39.

That same $39 will get you 9,500 ft at some DZ's, and 12,500 ft at others.

If fuel doesn't come down, then expect prices to rise to $26-$27 across the board for turbines to 13500. Most dropzone are at 24-25-26 already.

And given that things like insurance, aircraft parts and general operational costs have NEVER gone down in price, better get used to it.

Maybe we can outsource skydiving to China....

NEWS ALERT! Obama (nor Congress) controls gas prices. If you want to live in a country where the government actually controls gas prices, you might try China, or Venezuela or Cuba,

At my UK DZ it's effectively 18.20 to the top (US$28.50 by a straight conversion) and slightly cheaper for 10k or 5k. Kit hire is 10 on top of that, which is pretty standard.

Was only sarcasm.

...but! He could allow for drilling in certain places(those special places within the US) which would drop the cost of gas by 2/3rds! (Maybe could lower the fuel tax as well).


We just need to build a 13,000 foot tower that we can jump off of!
