Need your opinion!
Guys/Gals I need your opinion. I've been doing tunnel time to hold back the itch to do AFF because its cold and snowy where I live. Well this weeks weather has been so nice in the state that I'm working (Delaware) that myself and a guy that works with me decided to do a Tandem jump today. Bad Idea!! You know when your hungry and you only eat like 3 potato chips, and all that does is make you more hungry and wanting more? Yeah thats what it feels like know. Long story short my question is so you think it better I wait and do AFF at the DZ which I will probably be jumping the most at or would it be alright to do it at Skydive Orange in Orange VA when Im in Richmond for work starting this january? I'll be there for the better part of 2 to 3 months which should be plenty of time to get an A license weather permitting. Just wondering what some of your opinions on this are and what kind of advice you might have. Thanks
I'd say go for it! What you want to avoid is starting your training and then waiting for a month and a half to do another training jump. If you can get good conditions every weekend and can do multiple jumps in a weekend, just go for it!
If your schedule allows regular allotments of free time for you to train when the dropzone is open and active (it's winter, remember), do it now! You may be able to get farther than you originally intended!
