It is just as sleazy some places on the other side.
One example, the southern NV soaring club uses the legal dba and trademark
of the local FBO to solicit for profit glider rides.
No accident the web link leads you to:www.lvvsa.organd their phone
According to the local flying attourneys, this club is listed with
the Internal Revenue Service and Clark County as a non-profit organization.
Also advertises in the local yellow business pages and not for FAST rides
although an SSA afiliated club.
Just how many millions of dollars did Skydive Arizona win from Skyride for
misrepresentation, fraud, defamation, trademark infringement and lost
So who pays the fines, legal fees and verifiable loss of income when the
glider club gets caught? Unaware club members with their dues and assets or
the bond and note holders.
Word of caution. Dangerous waters, glider clubs.

Some operators will not do business with Sky Rides by honoring the
certificates it sells. =A0Sky Rides has contacted the SSA to sell the
F.A.S.T. program to unknowing customers. =A0These customers call a
gliderport to redeem the F.A.S.T certificate and the operator has no
idea that it was not sold by the SSA but rather, by the Sky Rides
Can any of the operators confirm this?
I talked with Mr Barber today also and it seemed like a good idea at

I wonder how much more than the usual $99 they will charge in order to
make a profit?- Hide quoted text -

Excuse me?? I've been a member of the LVVSA for 10 years now. LVVSA
does not, never has, and never will give glider rides for profit. We
participate in the FAST program. When people call looking to 'take a
ride' in a glider, we refer them to the local commercial operator. I
personally give about a dozen rides a year - splitting the cost of the
tow and glider with the rider, or in many cases simply paying for the
entire ride myself.
