  I went up to be sure I knew what I was getting into if I ever did have
to bail out.

I have never been so terrified in all my life.

Glad I did it but never again.

Hello folks,

I've been lurking around the group for a while.  I am interested in
at least going up for a few test flights to see what acrobatics is
all about.

Anyway, too the point.  I am a skydiver and am interested, just out
of general curiosity, to know how many of you acro pilots have
actually made an intentional jump.  That is, you jumped from the
proverbial perfectly good airplane.  As all skydivers know, there is
no such thing as a
"perfectly" good airplane.

I guess it would also be interesting to know how many of you have
bailed out or considered bailing out.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled mailing list.
