It was an early morning and we had a fourty minute drive to the airfield. I had an 9:00am appointment at Dive City..cool name!! I got there early and signed and initialed all the paperwork. Bill was my instructor and he gave me a fifteen minute talk about what to expect. I put on my jumpsuit and harness and we both headed out to the Twin Otter. We where to be the last to jump out so we got onto the plane first followed by ten others. We strapped in and off we went down the runway. We slowly climbed and circled the field to an alttitude of 10,000 feet. A few jumped here and we then continued of climb to 13,500 feet. Your first jump is tandum, Bill hooked me to his harness and we slid down the row towards the door. Bill told me to keep my head down until we got outside the door of the plane.
