Hi everyone...Another newbie!
Firstly hello to all involved with Dropzone.com!
I did my first Tandem jump with Carolina Skysports just under a month ago - 14,000ft from a Twin Otter - Resulting in one SERIOUSLY hooked soon-to-be-skydiver!!
Based in England, I am booked on my Static-Line RAPS course on 31st March and can't wait! Depending on looming redunancies at my workplace, I may then progress to AFF or if the money isn't coming in as much as i'd like i'll progress with the Static.
I have to say that during the short time I've been looking at the posts re: Safety, Dropzones and Cutaways I feel that I could 'top-up' my knowledge of the sport while I'm not at the DZ.
Hopefully I'll have some cool progress reports soon!

Welcome to the sport and the skies. You're story sounds like mine...hooked right after touching down on the tandem...but jsut remember...DO NOT use the info here without consulting an instructor first. Some peope on here dont know what they are talking about sometimes. When in doubt...even the slightest....ask an instructor. Stay safe and blue skies!
