    Nashville TV News story on Skyride

    I have yet to go to a dz in nearly 5 years that gives a refund to anyone for weather conditions. -Brett Skydive Arizona does, i took a bunch of friends out there, unfortunately the weather was kind of poor that day with multiple holds. when they finally stop for the day because of it, they were given a choice comeback another day or get money back, some couldn't come back so they took the refund, the rest went back the next day. no hassles or arguments were needed for my friends to get their money back. that's the way it should be, if you have to go to the news channels to help then its a shitty biss. and they shouldn't be allowed to operate. light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak

    was pretty sure the actual sound on movie wasnt real, thats why i was asking, so they did have some sort of loud openings, thanks light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak
  4. thanks that actually helps a lot as i was thinking the dz was actually on the other side looked kind of like a pea pit across the street there and couldn't help but wonder why people would be landing around runway, that was of course before you posted your first set of pics. after that was just confused light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak
  5. yea. there is no way i'll have it before aff, which is only a few days away. i'm just doing some future planning right now, and thinking ahead. i do think a helmet will be the first piece of gear that i buy, and since the ones i'm considering aren't cheap, it will be a while. besides, i need to make a good number of jumps beforehand to get a better feel for what i think will be best. there is a much more important piece of gear that should be first in my opinion an altimeter!!!! different dz in your area might have rentals for helmets that would allow you to try many different ones. Sq 1 should have rentals as Sq 2 in eloy does. my prefrence was a mamba easiest to open in my opinion but still very secure in free fall. light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak

    seen the movie several times, got one ? did the opening make a noise anywhere close to those on movie. never even been anywhere close to a round in actual use so. i know the sound when a modern canopy is opening up, when its not mine of course. do they sound the same or did they actually have a pop to them? i know probably stupid ? but still instrested light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak
  7. well either way sounds like the guy is going use the rope he was trying to use to hang the dz with to hang himself light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak
  8. what buildings are associated with the dz, manifest ect.could u highlight those for us that have never been there, how big is the field acre wise at the north end of runway, looks pretty big, and is field on other side of road landable area or are there obst, haz, not see able by Google earth, animals and such or barbwire fences light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak
  9. does that mean he couldnt take off in his plane from that airport? light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak

    Density Altitude

    well today if you are jumping at eloy it would be like landing at 5930 ft msl, no wonder why my canopy never flared for shit in the summer. i knew that temp had an effect on flying performance but didnt realize it was that much considering eloys at 1500 msl. thanks for info for the calcs. light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak

    Skydiving tattoo ideas?

    thats almost like the one i want to get, but as i cant draw very good, and havent been able to get someone to draw one that looks the way i want it to, so far, I'm still waiting to get mine. nice one though looks good light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak
  12. as would be deserving, or the owner could always sell the airport to them at an ungodly high price, law says a person cant sell to someone specifically land at lower than market price if he wouldn't sell to someone else at that price to, but as far as i know law doesn't say u cant sell above market value by say 20 fold the price to someone u don't like. light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak

    Graduated!

    im the same way! i just want to run around screaming! i just want to get out of work and go right now! im going to jump 4 or 5 times next weekend! i have dreams about skydiving :) Congrats man! u could always do what i did, were a shirt telling the boss that his work sucks and u would rather be skydiving, that is if your boss has a sense of humor, i found out mine didn't, when he told me good go skydiving instead of working for him,and congrats your lives will never be the same. light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak
  14. it was said earlier that the HOA had to pay money for use of facility, if they are not paying the money, and the land is privately owned, they should not be allowed to use the airport. some sort of contract should be in place right? stating what each has obligations for. who was the first to break the conditions? owner or HOA? if HOA was first to break it then they should not be allowed to use the airport until new contract is place, and that should be only if land owner wants to. at last resort owner could always sell land to someone else besides the HOA, say a homebuilder for example, that would build houses on the land instead of keeping it an airport. if that happened the dz could use the money move a little bit down the road, or as it looks like on google earth, buy the land a little to the north of the dz and out in another privatly owned strip with no concesions to the HOA for use (correct me if im wrong but privatly owned land is just that private they couldn't force the owner to do anything that the owner doesn't want to do) and not have to deal with the HOA anymore, if the developer was big enough they would have pockets far deeper than the HOA could ever get for fighting legal battles. leaving them without a airport. light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak
