Have you ever wanted to fly as a child? Are you just tired of the same rollercoaster ride? Do you feel like you need something a bit more exciting so that you brag for the rest of your life? Well I have one remedy to all your problems: Skydiving. That’s right, we are going to jump off the plane at 13,500′ and freefall for 50 seconds.
We are doing a TANDEM skydive course. The ‘ground class’ should only be 45 minutes and the trip will take a total of 5-10 hours, but I would leave the sunday free.

Curious? Check out the actual video on the right (fast forward to 5 minutes)

Fear of height?
“If you have a fear of heights, it does not apply in the same way for skydiving. You are so high, it does not look high in the same perspective as looking down from a ladder or out a high window.”

While you are reading the rest of the trip description and logistics, you should aleady be reaching for your checkbook and a pen.

As I have said, I got us a special deal with them. I negotiated for an extra discount on top of the group discount to take $40 off of $255 to make it $215 ($225 Visa/Master/Amex). That’s still a quite bit of green, but if you are always going to remember jumping off the plane and this crazy guy named Nick who convinced you to do so, then isn’t it be worth the money? If you are like me and has to jump off the plane soon or later, it might as well be now when you have the deal! So are you finished with writing the check for $50 deposit yet?

-$50 non refundable deposit per person (can be rescheduled to another day)
-Each person must be at least 18 years old, able to read, write understand English, be in reasonably good physical and mental condition, and be under 220#.
-Bring a picture ID with DOB like a driver’s, and arrive on time.

If you have any question, please check out these website pages before asking me.
First Jump:

I will try to make this as easy as possible. You can choose any of the following methods to hand me the deposit, preferably in check written out to “Nick Um” but cash is fine:
1. Meet me right outside of O’Hill Dining Hall between 5:00-5:15 pm on FRIDAY ( 9/26 ). I will be wearing a green club t-shirt.
2. Meet me right outside of Runk Dining Hall between 5:30-5:45 pm on SUNDAY ( 9/28 ).
3. If you can’t make either, you can send your check to 494 Dillard, Charlottesville, VA 22904. But you should do this today.
4. If there are still space available, I will post more meeting times and make separate appointments.
You should call before coming to make sure I know that you are coming. 703-477-1416. I will be out of town this weekend and coming back on sunday afternoon.

You must understand that the deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE but I will try my best to replace you with someone in case you have to withdraw. If I can’t pull anyone off the waitlist, you must find a replacement yourself.
**You get off the waitlist when I receive your check/money**

In the event that it gets cancelled, it will be rescheduled but we don’t all have to go on a same day (but same discounted price) if the schedule doesn’t work out. More detail will follow if it does get cancelled, that’s all you need to know for now.

What to wear


You can purchase photo/video for extra money
