    I have been thinking about doing this in the near future. Was just wondering if anyone on here has done it? Do they still give you some kind of training when doing it tandem? Thanks

    I haven't done it, but the last I heard is that they do give you some training before you do it.

    Hi ya.

    The new rules and regs state that you have to jump tandem 2 to 4 times with a Jump instructor first.

    There is no other way to jump. You have to jump tandem first then you can jump alone without being hooked to an instructor.

    I don't like tandem jumps. The ladnings are harder to pull off and I can care less to be hooked to someone.

    But you have to learn somehow.

    Thanks for the information. I most definently don't mind doing it tandem the first few times. I would feel more comfortable all around.

    I look at it like this: If anything went wrong, I wouldn't have to die alone! Other than that, skydiving of any sort scares me to death.

    But then people say that about many of MY activities!

    I have never done this before. The idea of heights to that degree makes me nervous.
