    Best DZs to get A License

    I am faced with the same issue myself. I will get solo certified at my DZ, but I wont have enough time or money to finish the 15 more jumps I need for my A. Don't know how it works in the US, but in Canada, once you become solo certified, you pay your first dues and become a member of the CSPA (the Canuck version of the USPA), which grants you the ability to jump solo anywhere in Canada. Of course, there is also currency... most DZs will require you to have a certain level of currency or they may ask you to take a refresher course of some kind. And some DZ's require folks who are not their students to have an A.

    Best Way to Check Weather

    The Weather Network is my resource. Just check in with the station closest to each drop zone. Or give them a call.

    Hello there.

    Hello! Where are you doing your training, if I may ask? And how do you like it there? My cousin in Montreal is looking around for a good DZ to learn at...any insight would be valuable :)

    Skydive Burnaby

    First time jump. Did my tandem with Rick. He was very patient, experienced, and friendly. Definitely recommend it here for any first timers.
