I am so excited for you! My first jump was out of a little cessna which I had to hang onto the strut then let go! I couldn't believe I was hanging out of the plane while I was flying more than 10,000 feet in the air! I was on cloud 9 for a couple weeks after that jump and it hooked me. I have more than 300 jumps now.

I took video of his jump, you actually hold onto the plane wing support then let go when they give you the signal. Scary stuff!

Ha yes I have done that from my first jump. I've also never done a tandem jump. I went straight into the course so I could fly my own canopy on the first jump I did and I was not attached to another person. I have never done static line either so I've always done freefall and deployed my own parachute.

You have big cojones to do that

The thought of plunging to my death at terminal velocity sort of makes me uneasy.
