I have done 3 tandem jumps. Be sure to have it video taped. It’s worth the $. First jump is a blur…sensory overload, crazy stress/fear. But, that’s why you do it. Once you complete it, your thinking process changes ( for the good.)
Second and third jump were better. I was able to focus on the free fall and my surroundings and what I was actually doing/experiencing.
The first jump, the main focus was survival and trying to breath.
I was good flying up to 13.5 thousand feet for the jump. The realization of what your about to do kicks in when the door opens. That when things got real for me.
Once out the door all the instruction given to me stayed on the plane. Arch, Arms out, head back, knees bent. He had to pull my legs and head into position and guide my arms to where they were supposed to be. TIP #1 Keep you mouth closed. Traveling at terminal velocity, 125mph with your mouth open makes it difficult to breath. It’s close to a minute of free fall. It’s loud because of the wind. Then the chute opens. TIP #2 Make sure your harness is not compromising anything in your groin region. The opening of the chute is pretty forceful on the body. Your going 125mph to 0 instantly. Then its absolutely quiet. Beautiful view. Landing in a piece of cake.
I excited to hear about your experience.

Be safe and have a blast..I knew we had to have someone here with as little sense as me. I can’t wait till Saturday!! Backdoc, I’ve watched a buttload of videos and I do believe when the door opens it will all get real. I’m not concerned in the least right now but we all know the door should always remain closed while in flight.
Maybe we could also talk about my herniated c6 and bone spur sometime, I’m hoping freefall will straighten things outMark I think the term is scared straight not “straighten things out” Hope you make a two point landing and land on both your feet.
Location: OhioI’ve done it once and it was a blast!
