  1. I went skydiving on Sept. 9th in Chester, South Carolina. It was so fun that I signed up for ground school at my local DZ. The ground school will consist of classes on the ground and 7-9 jumps which give you an A-license and the ability to jump alone anywhere in the world at a DZ (drop zone).

    So this Saturday, I will arrive at the local DZ at 8:15am and start a 5-6 hour class and then take my second jump, which will be coached by two instructors in the air.

    Awesome pictures!

    After going tandem skydiving twice, I am also thinking about taking the AFF class. :)

    Go for it, just be careful. Remember to NEVER do anything that your not comfortable with. Never jump out of the plane if you feel the weather or altitude is not safe and always double check your gear. I've also learned not to jump if you have a cold, it could damage your hearing during skydiving. These are some points I plan to live by myself. Other than that I say go for it and have fun. :-D Let us know about your first jump in AFF if you enroll.
