  Hi, it's me, Patty. I've done a couple of times, both tandems.  Didn't really
enjoy them all that much but I think it was worthwhile...i feel like i could
bail out a lot easier now that I know it's not all that big a deal.  Plus, I
have watched two of my friends bail out (successfully) of airplanes, and had
another friend bail out...which could have been successful, but the leg
straps weren't done up.  oh well.  

Anyway, the reason I'm writing is that I think every aerobatic pilot who
wears a chute should jump at least once (preferably a tandem) to give them
the confidence to know that they could jump in an emergency.  Patty
