(16th August, 2018)The weather wasn't in our favor during the first half of the day. I was starting to wonder if I would be able to complete the course today. I have to be honest, I was a little relieved thinking that the jumps might not happen today. I needed a day to relax. But, the clouds cleared and the jumps were in place. My instructor told me to get ready for my final jump. He said, we'll do a normal jump with no stunts but I will try not to hold you along the way down. We shook on it and headed for the jump. This is how I finished my last and final jump, thereby completing the course. The landing was much better than the jump. I was able to land exactly at the center of the circle marked in the field.

(15th August, 2018)We had already settled in the new base. It was bigger but less scenic than the base in Arcachon. This was the place where I would be finishing the rest of the dives. The feeling in all of the dives was pretty much similar apart from the few surprises which my instructor would throw in like, on the third jump he said, I will have to do a front flip and jump out of the plane, in the fourth he said, I will have to do a back flip and jump out of the plane. Since there was the issue of balance in my case, we decided to do normal jumps in the next two. Here are the videos of my 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th dive, which I completed to gain an amateur solo skydiver license.Here is how my 3rd dive went:
