Thanks for the advice guys but at the last minute I pulled off guess I was not ready and I suppose It didn't help my children's worried look saying "don't jump" !!! Still, even without jumping it was a great experience, I have learnt a lot -for next time- and the children had a good time playing hide and seek with all the other's parachuter's children.
I promised to go back, and try again maybe after doing the "Cognac route" not too far from there
I hope you go back, as it is truly an exhilarating experience.
If you have done all the pre jump training, everything should happen pretty well automatically.
I still remember my first jump. It was from a 5 seater Cessna.
When the time came, I got out of the door of the plane, onto the step. The instructor tapped me on the shoulder, which was the signal for me to let go, and throw my arms and legs back into a sort of star jump pattern.
The static line opened the chute, and it was a fantastic experience of enjoying the view and floating down to the ground. Landing came automatically, as we had been practicing the landing and body roll for quite a while.
I'd really encourage you to go back and try again.
