DISCOUNT Indoor Skydiving

Postby spork » Tue Mar 04, 2008 1:13 am

I've been hitting the indoor skydiving place in Union City for the past few weeks with my wife and friends. They've now offered me a deal to buy block time at a significant discount. If you're interested please contact me for details. I'm hoping to get enough interest to buy the block.

Thanks

We would buy 10 hours and use it in half hour or one hour chunks over the next two months. I typically use 10 minutes in a given session. The normal rotation is to have a small group of people that each do 2 minute flights several times over.

I've been loving it, and would love to get a group together so we can bring the price down.

Let me know how much time you might be in for so I can see if we're getting to that mark. Thanks.

That's sweet! I could be talked in to doing that. Keep me posted as to opportunities to give it a try. I'm a never-ever, but it might just be a one-shot deal. Union City is a bit of "haul" at $3.50/gal!
It ain't easy being greene.

Hey Rick, how's it going! Sounds interesting. We haven't tried it yet so I would imagine we would need to take the beginner course first? I'm assuming that would be about 1.5 hours? Let me know what kinda deal you can get.

Thanks,

May

May, they've already sent me a contract for the deal. To make a long story short, it's $11.00/minute. Without the bulk deal, it's $17 to $20 per minute (depending on how many minutes you buy). Monica and I typically each do 10 minutes every saturday. So we plan to buy 2 hours out of the block of 10 we need for the bulk deal. We would each continue to do 10 minutes once a week, for the next 6 weeks. If we got the interest, we'd buy another block when that ran out.

For complete beginners there's a one time $15 fee for the intro course. This is true with or without the bulk discount. There's no minimum or maximum amount you'd need to do as a beginner or an expert. However, I'm trying to sell blocks in increments no smaller than 10 minutes. In a perfect world I'd get 10 people to each buy one hour (to use over the next couple of months).

Please let me know if you would potentially be interested. If I get enough people for the block purchase I'll confirm with them and then buy it.

Hope to see you at 3rd REAL soon.

Rick C.
