When do you earn the right to call yourself a skydiver?

When you truly understand and make the conscious decision that the things you gain from jumping out of an airplane, outweigh the things you could possibly lose.



What,,,, what did he say. I am so confused. My head hurts, I am going to lie down. (Mumbles: deep so deep I might drown.) :S

My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals

What about after your first cutaway? I hold a skydiving license, but i've never had a major malfunction. I don't think i'll go from feeling like someone who skydives to a skydiver until I KNOW that i can remain calm and do everything humanly possible to save myself in an emergency. And i won't find that out until it happens.

when you can fart in freefall



If farting in freefall makes you a skydiver, does crapping all over yourself in freefall make you a skygod? B|



I am mightily curious about why you're asking.:)
"That formation-stuff in freefall is just fun and games but with an open parachute it's starting to sound like, you know, an extreme sport."

Consider this, Is a tennis player a tennis player if they haven't played tennis for many years?, How about a skier or a baseball player. Just because they were at one time doesn't continue to make them so.

I only consider a skydiver a skydiver if they are currently jumping. I had about an 8 year layoff where I would make an occasional jump, but didn't consider myself as a skydiver during that time, simply that I had been a skydiver. When I quit someday, I will consider myself to have been a skydiver.

A tandem jumper is just that, someone who made a jump. If they continue, they are a skydiver. When they stop, they are not.
You live more in the few minutes of skydiving than many people live in their lifetime
