  1. Hello everyone, I am very, very new to this sport, I've had 2 tandems and 2 solos in April and then, bam, tore my acl on a trampoline. Currently I am 3 months post with a cadaver graft and itching to get out there. I wanted to try a tandem but both the PT and doc say my plan is to wait the full 9 months and start over with ground school in March. So my question to you all is, with those of you with knee injury how do you deal with landings (I was terrified of the landing before my injury) And the bigger question will I every be able to jump again?
  2. Thank you all so much for your responses, it really does help. I will be starting the FJC on April 13th! I'm super nervous since I've built it up in my mind for the past year and kind of intimidated by the price tag but i think it will be an exhilarating time.
  3. Thanks for your feedback, this really helps! He is completely supportive, just wants me to be happy, but he won't be joining me on this journey...He's mostly concerned about the price of it all and not wanting me to get hurt etc. To me it's something I at least need to try, even if I don't do it for the rest of my life. I will have every other Friday off for me to go to the closest DZ (they are open only thurs-sun) just waiting on when they will schedule the next class!
  4. Hello everyone! I’m a total newbie here, I’ve been trying to decide if I should start the AFF for the past year. I’ll give y’all a little back story... My husband and I did our first tandem for my 30th bday in the spring. As I landed I literally said to myself, “the ground is stupid”. I fell in L.O.V.E. I could not get skydiving out of my mind, trying to learn everything I can online. We went a 2nd time in the fall. I knew I didn’t want to jump (no pun intended) into anything with haste... I got a new job, spent the next 8 months saving up, and told myself to wait 1 year to weigh the pros and cons but I’m still left with questions and doubt. So! Do you think about it all the time? Was it hard for you to make the decision to start? How do you pay/afford it? How do you juggle your life outside of this community, family, wanting to travel, fixing up the house, hanging with other friends? Lastly, and mostly importantly, if I decide to start I’m left not knowing if I’ll complete or continue on, which I’m ok with but Have y’all ever know someone to stop, and if they’ve regretted their decision or not? Thank you so much! Paula G.
