Hi, I'm Ian.
So I have been lurking around the forums for some time now, and its about time to start getting involved!
I'm Ian and I'm from Ireland. I work as a filmmaker and got into skydiving by chance, when I was shooting a music video at the Irish Parachute Club, people were nice, looked like fun so 5 days later I was in ground school. Finished that, and got my first ever skydive. Which scarred the absolute shit out of me.
Moving forward I recently completed AFF, (only took me 6.5 months, gotta love Irish weather) Over that time I became a professional 'driving to the dropzone and not jumping and while looking at the weather type guy' :)
But AFF is done now, and im delighted, I fall like a brick, so yea, have to learn how to work on that.
Next jump is my first solo console, and i swear, i'm terrified, but its the fear that keeps me coming back!
Welcome to the forums! You should come to FL for a couple weeks and bang out some jumps. I've known a lot of Europeans who have done that over the years because the exchange rate is in your favor. Bunkhouses and tent camping are cheap too, you should consider it!
