When he flies on the plane, he realizes the reality of his decision and the weight of his decision is installed. The nerves are taking over one.

Once the door is opened, a gust of cold wind fills the plane and the heart accelerates. Seeing someone jump through the door right in front is amazing: they are there at the door for a second and then they are just gone. It happens so fast that you do not have time to process anything. Your instructor will tell you to move towards the door. Once you reach the door, you can see down and you will see the ground thousands of meters away.

This variant of traditional parachute has allowed practically any person to qualify to make the jump, of course accompanied by an instructor who is responsible for doing all the maneuvers.
