    Did you do a buddy jump first?

     

    :shocked: Did you have an intelligence test first:biglaugh:

     

    You have a perfectly good servicable aircraft and when its high off of the ground, you want to jump out of it!!!! :goofy::biglaugh:

    I've always wanted to do this but know I could never do it, if that makes any sense.

     

    I just wish I didn't have a fear of heights, it would be so brill.

     

    Well done for trying something new and loving it too.

    you can also get the experience by doing cable skydiving and cable hang gliding. I'm eventually going to give the cable hang gliding a go, there's a place just by the Victor turn off on South Rd. You get 2 goes and I don't think it costs much.

    I think this has closed down now:sad:

    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 :biglaugh:

    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!13_4_9.gif

    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.

    If i can get a well paid job when i get there, then i will be doing my private pilots licence too. :)

    Always been a dream of mine to learn to fly. I know it makes your arms ache a bit all that flapping.:biglaugh:

    What sort of costs are involved?

    Hi "TC for short",

     

    I would be interested in flying an aircraft again. I used to have a PPL. It would be nice to catch up when we are in Adelaide.
