There are numerous signs indicating where it's safe to stand and where to go to get jumpsuits, which are optional, but everyone chose one to wear. The staff are very helpful and informative. You can pay extra to have a professional quality video taken of your jump as well.
I waited at the edge of the landing field, camera ready for him to jump.
The flight up in the tiny plane was okay. My heart hammered non-stop.
When the small door was opened, my heart hammered, and here's the difference between the solo jump and tandem? Lance had to get out of the plane and do all his moves he had learned that morning, on his own. I was nudged a little forward by Mick who I was attached to, and then I was sitting on the edge with my feet hanging over the edge.
The view was incredible, the wind amazing, and even though I was anxious, I was ready to go.
If skydiving is something you've wanted to do, contact Ripcord Skydivers. It is located within two hours of Brisbane. If you end up waiting for weather to clear as I did, there are plenty of places to eat, and you can bring a picnic and watch the solo jumpers. If you have questions the staff are patient and knowledgeable. It's a good time and a fun adventure.
