My First Sky Dive From 15000 Feet

My very first (tandem) sky dive from 15000 feet. Free fall for the first 10000 feet and then parachute at 5000 feet. I did it with GoSkyDive in Salisbury, UK.

My instructor was Ryan Mancey. Ryan is the chief instructor at GoSkydive. Extremely friendly chap and made it so easy for me. I could not have done without him. Ryan has jumped about 8000 times in past 20 years of his experience in sky diving.

Geared up in the jump suit and tandem harness, walking towards the plane.

Shouting as loud as I can “15000 feet here I come”.

Finally the parachute was deployed at about 5000 feet.
