Deal direct with the company you fly with:
Our guide is unique since it lists the actual ride companies in a particular area. This offers many advantages over the 'Prepaid' ride companies.
First, you can visit with the company and find out all you need to know, including their specific terms and practices. Secondly, when you book directly with the flight company, you know exactly where you'll fly, how long the flight will last, and what is included. Our directory also allows you to comparison shop when there are multiple operators in an area.
The companies that advertise 'hundreds of locations nationwide' usually contract with a single operator in an area and pay them only a fraction of what you paid for your flight. Passengers that come from these 'aggregators' are used to fill vacant spots on existing flights, and it may be more difficult to actually schedule your flight if all seats are full during the most desirable times of year. As with most things, you get what you pay for!

Rip-stop nylon is the most common material. Polyester and other fabrics are sometimes used. The lower portions around the opening are usually made from a fire resistant material like Nomex, similar to what race car drivers and firemen wear to protect themselves.
