Sky Diving – The Jumps

All excited – I got on the flight from Mumbai to Ahmedabad on Friday.
Was met by Sourin, Narottam and Harnish at the airport and we were
off to Deesa.
Met up with a few more trainees in Deesa – mostly from the army.

happened as it was all wiped out by the experiences next day.

Sky-Diving

After a lot of effort in getting more people to participate – I finally went alone for the sky-diving training this weekend. Though initially I was struck by the unprofessional approach to the arrangements made – I later realised this was due to the fact that this was a small outfit and the participants expected were only 6-10. However the initial disappointment converted to amazement and excitement – our instructor were amazing – they knew their jobs as well as made us totally confident about actually jumping from the plane.

They taught us the basics of the parachute – explained each and every thing patiently – and more importantly gave us the confidence in our equipment required to jump. They explained the safety features, the controls, everything we needed for the first jump. Now I’m really excited about the jump and waiting eagerly for the weekend to come.
