Info on Manufacturers Can't Post

Is there a web site or other directory which gives comparative info on manufacturers of parachuting equipment? i.e. in terms of annual sales, or number of canopies/containers sold, and maybe how long they've been trading. I thought the PIA web site might help, but it didn't seem to.

People are sometimes reluctant to trust smaller manufacturers such as Mirage or Atair. But how much smaller are they than Sunpath and PD?

Is there any way to find out, except by contacting each company individually?

Could this info be added to the gear pages of dropzone.com ?

thanks

Geoff

Hi Geoff,

WE do have gear reviews on Dropzone.com, but they're dependent on folk posting the reviews in the first place, so they're kind of patchy Frown.

Geoff, it was either "Skydiving Magazine" or the USPA Magazine that ran comparative data for market share..... ie canopies/rigs. It showed sales trends over the last few years. I remember seeing it printed sometime in the past year. Hope that helps....

I can't find anything that detailed on pia.com - could you maybe give me a complete url if you're sure it's there?

thanks

Do you (or anyone else) remember which issue? I get both Skydiving and Parachutist, but I don't remember seeing such a table.

Thanks

Geoff, naw, can't say I do..... but I did read it. It showed Vector losing market share. Send e-mails to both of them, they will know what you're looking for
