Fun, Fun, Fun...
(Hopefully this version will work...)
First we took a 5 hour
class, learning all about free-fall, and 'chute handling,, and
Then we jump out of an airplane from 14,000 feet. Two Instructors are holding on to make sure I don't tumble during the first free-fall. During the fall, I'm practicing grabbing the 'rip-cord' (actually, the pilot 'chute - the thing that opens the main canopy)
Once the 'chute opened, I was on my own for the landing.
