I did this once a couple years ago, a tandem sky-dive.  It's a blast and a unique experience - there's no way you can replicate the perspective of jumping out of a rickety old plane, ripping through the air, and the astonishing contrast when the chute deploys and everything becomes incredibly peaceful and serene.

My instructor/partner was a cute young Swedish-looking blonde lady {/me waves to Scooter!}.  Yeah, I thought I was lucky about that part.  Little did I know I lucky I was to get a healthy young tandem...

"A man who received a parachute jump as a Christmas gift from his girlfriend had to use his own skill to survive after the instructor he was tethered to suffered a fatal heart attack during the jump"
"Pharr said that he knew something was wrong when George Steele stopped answering his questions after their parachute deployed Saturday afternoon over Chester County.

Pharr said it was his first jump from a plane. He said he didn't panic because of his Army training. Pharr said he also knew from watching television to use the toggles on the parachute to steer.

He said he tried CPR on Steele as soon as they landed but was unable to save him."

I hope they give the client an automatic solo license!
