but that won't help me with the landing.
|Quoting BCAInfoSys (Thread starter):|
I've only been once, jumping from a Cessna Turbo 207 at 15,000 feet, with a tandem instructor strapped to my back.
|Quoting BHMBAGLOCK (Reply 9):|
How long were you in the plane?
|Quoting BCAInfoSys (Reply 10):|
It was a good fifteen or twenty minutes. We had to circle a bit because ATC put us on hold for a little while. Even after the first guy jumped (I was # 2), they put us back on hold and I had to wait another 3-4 minutes.
|Quoting Fumanchewd (Reply 12):|
I have 4 jumps in Eloy, Arizona. They use twin otters

Where; Brisbane Australia, landed on Kings Beach
|Quoting Bravo45 (Reply 8):|
I may not be the expert but virtually ALL instructors I spoke with said that accidents don't occur because canopies don't open, they happen on landing.
|Quoting BMIFlyer (Reply 16):|
Damn steve, I kinda wish i'd joined you on that trip now Big grin
|Quoting BHMBAGLOCK (Reply 15):|
I personally favor more conservative larger canopies.
|Quoting TupolevTu154 (Reply 23):|
Don't know if that applies everywhere.
|Quoting Bravo45 (Reply 21):|
Is there a general rule of thumb as to how many jumps will I have to repeat when I go back to get my A licence?
|Quoting Boeingfanyyz (Reply 22):|
Just out of curiosity, how expensive is it?

So skydiving went the way of my dream of being in Howard Hughes' will or being asked to do a bicentennial minute. One by one the dreams get lived or they just drift away.
