Descending skills

Gina and I visited friends in Florida last week. It was a short stop-off before our trip to San Juan, PR. So what did we do? We jumped out of a fully functional plane.

What fun: a 15-minute flight up to 13,500; then jump out and freefall to 5,000ft; pull the chute and "glide" down the rest of the way. I say "glide" because my guide/instructor was pulling some aggressive moves and we came down quick!

  1. It may have been full functional, but there's no such thing as a perfectly good airplane.
