First lesson learned its a hell of a lot easier to relax When you do not have to worry about passing a level to get your A license!

You were a skydiver long ago -- once you determine that you're going to master something in skydiving, and figure out how to do it -- you're a skydiver.

Congrats on your A license.

I would guess a small matter of meeting both A and B requirements at this time.

WELL i did not Apply for my B CAUSE I SUCKED BIG TIME> I just now got the Jumps passed off. IT actually took me all of those 68 jumps to be able to perform well enough to pass the levels. I was placed back on AFF 3 times so I I actually graduated twice from AFF in one weekend that has to be some kind of record. How many people graduate AFF 4 times!!!

BUT I did take a canopy class and I have the required jumps free fall time and accuracy jumps. SO i just need water training and I CAN SWIM LIKE A FISH!!!!!!!!! <<< finally something i can do hopefully the first time SO i think I can get my B.

I think my log book has something like 10 failed exits in a row. Says EXIT SUCKED LANDING SUCKED. Then i had a couple good ones and was placed back off student status and GUESS WHAT tumbled the exit twice and was a student again! For another 8 to 10 exits. STILL HATE POISED EXITS BUT I CAN DO THEM!

Thanks WENDY for posting your log book really helped me keep going.

Well, actually that was a different Wendy -- she's got way more jumps, and world records, than I'll ever have Laugh

So keep going

Thanks sure plan on jumping more got a real good lead on my own rig. I started in Oct and only had 13 jumps by Jan so i have done 55 jumps since Jan 1 my goal is to do 100 by my 1 year date of Oct 8. If i get my own rig i plan on doing more then 100. I also have to go see POPjumper in August at the farm because he sure was a lot of moral support as well.

I have figured out how you can flunk it. You hold your breath and swim free. They they tell you that that you must come up under the faberic and get a breath or you really didn't learn anything. That is your luck, right?

I have acutally been thinking about that.

Smile well done. Also good call on visiting popsjumper he's one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. You could ask him to arrange your water training, give him a few weeks notice.
