Katie Thurston details her experience in getting a skydiving license

Katie Thurston shared a photo of herself as she geared up to go skydiving. 

Katie captioned the post, “I’m gonna be honest, jumping out of a plane as someone pursuing their license vs jumping out for fun, feels completely different. ? #skydive #sandiego #skydiving”

Katie was asked to elaborate on what she meant about the difference in her comment section.

Explaining what she’s found to be different about jumping for her license, Katie wrote, “there are so many things you have to pay attention to as a student and it feels scarier because you know it’s only you that gets you down safely.”

John Hersey also added that when you skydive with a license, “it’s 500x as radical.”

Another commenter congratulated Katie on getting her license, writing, “Let’s go Katie!!!! Getting my license was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself!” 

Katie sought out advice from the commenter and offered up more insight into how she personally feels while in the sky. Katie asked, “any tips for breathing during the free fall? Sometimes it feels like I’m drowning lol.” 

Katie also clarified to another commenter that she’s only focused on skydiving for now rather than taking on the training for tandem as well.
