Bob after years of hiatus from jumping my wife did a tandem 13,500 for her 50th birthday with me in the right seat and for as many times as I've seen jumpers leave an airplane over the years there is absolutely no way in hell will I ever jump out of an airplane, period!
Rick: Remember, though. Most jumpers die in plane crashes, not from impact related injuries. Maybe you'd feel safer if you jumped out of your own plane?? Just an idea.
