I do what I can. I read the "Skydivers Information Manuel." I spend time at the drop zone.
Then there's my solo jumps.
"No more solos!" people warned. "You'll learn more if you jump in groups." This made sense. I'd have to leave the plane with others if I was going to learn to control my fall rate.
But why would someone want to jump with me?
Not that people dislike me, but I bring very little to the jump. I ooze "Noob" like an aura..
In freefall I slide all over the place.
Everyone has been super nice to me, so I feel bad about being the troublemaker. Then again, if this is what it takes to get better, I'll be making more trouble.
*This is supposed to improve my body position in free fall.
*We have to wear seat belts for the first 1000 feet of the plane ride. Then they come off and people spread out. This means whomever is near the door is going to be getting closer to it. Yikes!
