its not as bad as it seems i did my first solo jump last week from 10000ft, those who live down south there is a jump site in goolwa (at airport) thats where i did a 14000ft jump...but to be honest the most scarest part is sitting on the side of a plane looking down to earth from 3miles up and then getting pushed out of plane and screaming like a girl all the way down lol... but now ive got the joy of steping out on to the wing and jumping off i cant wait for this weekend doing more jumps in lowerlight (off port wakefield road just past two wells) for all you those who have said "ive wanted to do a jump" well get off your sorry arses and book the jump
It's a fantastic feeling. I did two jumps when I was in my late teens and really enjoyed it. Like you said, its leaving the plane that worries you and of course hitting the ground. The bit in the middle is great fun, screaming your head off.
Being a little older and wiser now I prefer to just sit and look out of the window with a beer in my hand!
I prefer to fly aircraft rather than jump out! Once I've got my Australian licences sorted out & found suitable mounts I'll be happy to cost-share with anyone who's interested; right-way-up and/or aerobatics. Won't be for at least a couple of months though.
