Yours truly pictured below, anyone else?







USPA# 106617, D#24868, 600+ jumps in 42/50 states, 36 fixed & 6 rotary winged aircraft, Highest 28,000'-Lowest 1,500', Reserve Rides-5, Injuries-1
If riding in a airplane is flying,
then riding in a boat is swimming,
experience the element, get out of the vehicle... SKYDIVE!

i wouldnt be affraid to jump out of an airplane, its the sudden stop when i hit the ground because my chute failed to open that does.
if i knew with 100% certainty that the chute would work every time i would love to do that.

HIJACKERS! Take your Weight Watchers discussion elsewhere Smile

Two static lines count, bungee doesn't...  But bungee is a great rush too.

I went through a static line progression course, 6 static then on to freefall, 15 jumps later I was a 'A' licensed skydiver. (A= Basic, B=Intermediate, C=Advanced, D=Master)

275lbs isn't too heavy depending on how your carrying it.
If your a fat slob, it is, if your a big dude with alot of muscle and a lil flab, it isn't.
Just have to modify some tandem gear and find the right instructors, who're willing and have the experience to train you.
I'm 245 lbs and can easily find suitable gear.
