There's quite a few false yet popular ideas about skydiving out there. We gathered 5 important ones that we'd like to discuss and show you the true side of skydiving.
1. You can get good deals for skydiving on Groupon and such.
The components of a good and safe skydive are a good and well maintained airplane, modern and reliable gear and a professional instructor. All of those things aren’t cheap. Do you really want to put your life in the hands of a skydiving center that saves money on gear or airplane maintenance? We urge you to think again. Also, watch out for the fine print… The only way a skydiving center can make those crazy cheap deals work is if they charge you extra fees upon arrival. Hey, there’s also a gear rental fee.. (like it’s optional, right?). Or hey, for just $50 extra we will take you to higher altitude! (Wait, how will I know the difference?) It gets confusing. Choose a skydiving center with a proven safety record, high culture of safety and transparent pricing.
