Jumping out of ur own aircraft Can't Post

Anyone know the rules as far as jumping out of ur own aircraft? Like say I want to jump out of my own plane and land on a public beach or in an empty soccer field... what are the laws/restrictions involved?

Cheers

The FAA guidelines in section 9 of the SIM go over a lot of it.

Exhibition jump guidelines would probably also be worth looking at:

Also, where does the plane land if you're jumping out of it?

Search the term "Bandit Jump"

Proper notification of ATC, permission of the landowner. Usually public land isn't ok becuase it is owned by the city, not the public. And getting permission from the city is nearly impossible.
There's a few other issues, but it's not that hard to do.

The plane lands back at the airport with one of my trusty pilot friends at the yoke... then if I survive I buy him a beer later that evening ;-)

Thanks for the info!

If you buy him a beer, or recompense him in any way for the "transport" - be sure he is a commercially rated, license holding pilot - or you may violate him/her & put his (her) ticket in jeopardy by doing so.

I take it you are a licensed pilot? If so I would suggest you do your own research of the FAA rules on the subject. A good place to start might be FAR Part 105, AC No: 105-2D, and SIM Sec 7.
Also contact the FSDO office in the area you propose to in.

I have spent the last several months jumping into a local park out of my friends balloon. The balloonists here got permission from the city to use an old park as a launch and landing area, and I managed to add landing canopies into their balloon waiver without the city attorney noticing, or caring if he did notice. I call 877-487-6867 to issue a PJE NOTAM with Lockheed Martin prior to jumping and provide them with a radial and distance from the nearest VOR station, altitudes MSL, and ZULU times of the jump and provide them with my cell number as a contact. If we get blown out of the area too quickly to jump the trip becomes a balloon ride instead of a jump.
