Hah! They did 2 tandems with video out of that thing a couple weeks ago! The first time I went in it with 6 people, the guy in front of me sat on my leg for the first 3000 feet. Good thing he left at that point, because it was going to be him or me!
I actually find it to be somewhat more comfortable than being stuck in the middle of the King Air, but I get concerned with the number of body parts that fall asleep on the way to altitude. With neoprene socks on it was pretty comfortable, but my ass was cold half-way into the flight (We have a high-tech cloth and velcro door.)
It was actually a pretty comfortable jump too, for all that I couldn't feel my fingers by the time I hit the ground. I got a nice slide on the snow when I landed, before walking it out.
The majority of my jumps are out of a narrow body 182, over 1,000 of those were tandems.
Suck it up cupcake and jump out of a real plane (a 182).
its crazy how many peeps will turn down a day of jumping from a 182... spoiled is right
I love 182's and 206's, the sound of the engine overworking scrabbling for altitude *(getting excited when we hit a thermal and get 900' per minute), bouncing round in those thermals and the time to chat with the other jumpers in my opinion forms a tighter bond than that of the turbine crowd
I have done a ton of tandem video's and students out of 182-206's and love the small planes.
