Tandem skydiving.

I looked in the tags and saw nothing about sky diving sooo. I read about it on Wikipedia and I’ve been watching youtube videos on tandem skydiving. I was wondering if there’s anyone here who has done it. I’m writing a story about someone doing it for the first time and I’d really like to know how it felt for you from the moment you jumped out of the plane until your feet hit the ground. Does your mind just go blank? Do you feel like you’re falling or flying or floating? What are the physical sensations?

Any info you can give me about how it felt doing it, mentally, physically, emotionally, whatever, and what went through your head would give me some great insight into the experience. Also maybe why you even decided to do it and if you still felt the effects of it days later. Did it have any lasting impact on you? Thanks so much in advance!

My character lives in California and this story is set in the now, modern times, year 2011.
