I have a fair number of skydives under my belt, and know that in an emergency i wouldn't hesitate in the slightest in bailing out, seeing as I understand the equipment and have first hand experience of leaping into the 'unknown'.

I suppose the question should be not, 'would you jump' but 'would u jump in time'. I'd imagine the pressure of not wanting to leave the aircraftwould be fairly high, and I suspect has killed many a pilot because they either didn't jump, or left it too late.

I think it would be a good idea for all acro pilots to experience a controlled parachute jump such as a tandem jump, if only for exposure to this scenario.
