Use Extreme Caution When Buying Skydive Coupons!

One place you will likely see $120-$150 coupons for is "skydive jersey". Their plane registration is expired and NOT AIRWORTHY. http://registry.faa.gov/AircraftInquiry/NNum_results.aspx?NNumbertxt=9028X

From their facebook, tandems are not hooked up next to an open door: http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/306231_231555490224904_167713129942474_668382_3317121_n.jpg

And not a single jump goes above 8000 feet (they advertise 13,500), look closely at altimeters:

On top of that, licensed skydivers are not allowed, preventing any sort of pesky safety oversight that you might miss on their facebook page.

Oh Damn! I'm with this company and will have my skydiving experience this Tuesday.
