In skydiving or parachuting, freedom of choice exists only until you get to the door. Once you're in that doorway...:wink:...you're goin' out, either under your own power or somebody else's.

More effective if you use your heel, rather than the toe of your boot. Just saying.

BTW, the chutes they use now are more more effective and steerable.

George Bush Sr jumped well into his 80's.
Lots of seniors jump. It's expensive to gear-up and requires a lot of time maintain qualifications so the retired and financially secure are in a better position to take it up than most young people. Most of the young don't tend to stick with it, either and especially once they discover it's not at all an extreme sport. Shortly after I got certified, I met a woman who came in to do a tandem. She'd made her first jump on her 70th birthday and had done it every year since, this was her 81st birthday. I managed to be there for a few more of her birthdays, our last jump together was on her 88th. :smile:...she was so cool.
