Hello there. Can't Post

Hey there people :)

Just joined these forums and also just started to skydive. Currently finishing my AFF course!

Can't wait to skydive more but heh... money doesn't grow on trees :s Especially since I don't have my "real" job yet, I can't jump as I would like to.

Oh well. 20 mins in the tunnel and 6 jumps so far, all went pretty well. (5 jumps with instructors and one completely alone)

I love this!

Jaimie

PS: Anyone who'd like to see my AFF jumps..

Hello! Where are you doing your training, if I may ask? And how do you like it there? My cousin in Montreal is looking around for a good DZ to learn at...any insight would be valuable :)

I'm in Trois-Rivières, which is like halfway between Montreal and Quebec (like 1h-1h15 from Montreal). It is called Parachutisme Adrénaline Trois-Rivières.

I like it a lot but it's a pretty small DZ... Like 2 AFF instructors and a couple of TIs (which are mostly AFFs aswell)...

They have a Cessna 206 which can board 6 jumpers. I like it but keep in mind I haven't experienced anything else. They're 2 DZ related though... One in St-Jérôme, one in Trois-Rivières. St-Jérôme's one seems bigger but I haven't gone yet.

All in all, I get along everybody and the instructors really answer all of my questions. Haven't heard of stories either about experienced jumpers making fun of beginners of any sort (I know some of them rode the plane down in certain circumstances) and they were very understanding.

Great...thanks! Nice to see you around here... I am starting my PFF here in a month. Perhaps we will run into each other (figuratively, I hope)!

Welcome to the forums! Smile I have a "real" job, but I can't jump as much as I want to either. I feel your pain! I hope you are able to get your A license soon!

I watched the videos. Good job! You looked apprehensive the first time, but the rest of the time you looked pretty confident. And nice rolls!

Yeah I was pretty stressed out on the first 2 jumps but when I realized I really had some control in freefall, everything settled alright!

I can't wait to jump again, I'm at 9 right now!
