Arrive before your appointment time but be prepared to wait for instructors to become available, the weather to break, etc. Even though you’ll only be free falling for a minute, plan on being there for the entire day just in case. Pay attention. Before your jump, you will get a briefing and meet your instructor; this will help you enjoy your skydive much more. They will fit you into a harness that will connect to the instructor and the parachute.
