  1. some of the dz's around montreal offer aff courses in feb or march in florida but i'd rather not wait that long. what if i did my aff in the us with american training will it then be recognized when i return to montreal??

  2. I would like to do my AFF in november, december or january now that I have some cash to spare. However as far as I know all the DZs around montreal are closed for the winter. I am prepared to take a few weeks off and travel to the states or possibly south america. Does anyone have information on how and where I can do this without spending a lot of money on hotels and what not. "Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives." A. Sachs
  3. By you guys do you mean the rest of the world? (bar Venezuela and Iran etc.) Look at the gas prices around the world and count yourself very lucky. gas prices per country; "Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives." A. Sachs
  4. can someone who operates or works at a dz please share some information. i know people have posted break downs of jump tickets before but i would like to have a break down of current prices as well as predictions as to what a jump would cost with rising gas prices. if gasoline in the us currently averages 3$/gal and your jump ticket costs x $, then how much would x$ be if the cost of gas went to; 5$/gal 7$/gal 10$/gal 15$/gal 20$/gal feel free to add thing like; at x price of gas it is no longer economical to take small loads and we would only be able to take large loads of x jumpers in plane A. at x price of gas we would no longer be able to operate a profitable or break even dz.

  5. I find this surprising. when i went bungee jumping i searched for fatality/injury statistics and could not find anything other than the location i had chosen, which claimed 150000+ jumps incident free. so if you have some statistics or references i would like to see them.

  7. i wasn't sure were to post this. i was just reading skydiving magazine and came accross this; "The new focus on student training reportedly is a consequence of five fatal accidents involving students that occurred at one Canadian drop zone over a six-year span in the 1990s." "A CSPA official said the accidents occurred at a non-CSPA facility run by a man "who thumbed his nose" at the organization and the government." being canadian i would like to know which dz/operator this was so i can avoid it and him.
