They pick you up at Mandalay Bay and on the 30 minute drive to the airport you'll fill out paperwork and watch the short "how-to" videos. Once there you choose your package and then they run you through your two primary positions. Then it's out and up into this tiny flying sardine can. The instructor/guide/photographers exude confidence and they quickly have you convinced that you CAN fly. Once you tumble out of the plane it's 45 seconds of terror as you plummet to the earth (15000 feet below you) followed by absolute serenity as the canopy opens up and you float to the ground like a feather over the next 4 or 5 minutes. I would absolutely do it again...it was the most fantastic fabulous thing I've ever done. Of course you're going to have them film it for you and the guides do a wonderful job of it, skillfully interspersing interviews with you with shots of the backgrounds with great facial expressions. Be warned ladies, they seem to love to load the planes in such a way that a girl always jumps first (as my unfortunate date found out the hard way)...I suspect they do this to ensure that none of the guys back out. An absolute MUST DO!!!!
