any you old timers remember tri state skydivers near fleminton nj? i believe they were operating out of adams airpark (where north American aerodynamics



I have no knowledge of the operation other than having heard about it MANY years ago. Maybe 40.

Interestingly, I Googled the airport and the only hit was this DZ.com post of yours. I think that's sort of odd. I know the the operation existed and the airport existed.

A mystery.

I also get this reference from "The Parachute Manual", page 208, in Google books:

It's pretty neat that this "riggers bible" is now available online.

I did a search for Albatross Skydive Club and much like JohnRich, the only hit I got was yours, Nitrochute.  My 83 year old father was a skydiver in the 1960's (until 1970) with the Albatross Skydive Club out of Adams Air Park facilities, and I asked him about Tri-State Skydivers. He said that George Gividen was the president of the Tri-State Skydivers Inc., who had leased the Adams Air Park facilities during that era. My father is full of skydiving stories, lol. Hope this helps.
