  1. Hah Martin! We've got jet A in Abilene, bring that thing to Skydive Kstate!
  2. Call Jack Harrison at Falcon insurance Agency: 800-370-0557. Premiums have come down this year due to new competition he told me when we renewed. If anyone knows who the new player is please post.
  3. That is how we operate, coaches supervise students beyond their first hop n pop. May be a little off topic but each month I notice what seems like hundreds of A licenses issued listed in Parachutist. It seems to me many of these people (especially from small iad /sl dropzones) don't make it to the 100 or 200 jump number in which they can earn a coach or instructor rating. USPA is always pushing for dzs to work on student retention but given the nearly 600 A licenses listed in this month's Parachutist, I think this past season student retention overall was a non issue. USPA needs to do research on why sub 200 jumpers quit the sport hence reducing the pool of people who can earn instructional ratings. Perhaps research is a waste of time, basically other aspects of life: work, family, lack of money, competing activities, fear of an accident drives the exodus from the sport.

  13. At $130 an hour plan on losing money unless you have cheap fuel or $30 jump tickets or are only doing tandems.
