I'm about to query my MS that involves the main character going sky diving. It is not a major scene, but it is very significant.

If anyone's been skydiving and could read the scene for me to make sure it sounds realistic, I'd so be appreciative! Please PM me or rep me or post here!

Did it but not enough to get off the static line (10 jumps in my locale). I actually liked flying back to earth in the chute a whole lot, jumping out of the plane, not so much, although the fall on static is only 5-6 seconds.

I've done a tandem dive. 1 minute free fall, 5 minutes with the chute open. My instructor did most of the "driving", but I was along for the ride. LOL I'll be happy to read it.

Hi Echo,

I've been sky-diving a handful of times. Not an expert but happy to read a scene for you if it's any help.
