Would you or have you ever parachuted? I went to try it once a long time ago. Took the course and everything, but just couldn't get myself to jump out. Could you?

No I didn't, and I never could...I would be so scared. I don't even like to fly.

I have never jumped out of a perfect good plane. But given the chance, I would love to! I am not an adrenaline junkie. But I do like to try things at least once.

i don't think it is such a big thing to jump if you have a diving suite with you.

Never thought I could but I did it in 2002. A friend of mine owns the EP Skydiving Club here in Grahamstown, South Africa. I did the course just like you. The course duration is but a few hours. What really encouraged me was the four 19 year olds that were in line before me. Some of them were never in a plane before. So how could I not jump??? Eventually it turned out to be an awesome experience with a mamoth sence of victory over my fear of hights. I might do it again soon. So you can do it. If I could, you CAN!!!

Some people say that jumping out of a plane will help if you are scared of heights. I dunno?!? Thanks for responding

I've always wanted to try that and handgliding. I dream a lot about flying. Would I choke at the last minute? I really don't know.

I have never parachuted and don't think I would have the courage to do so. I don't even like flying much
