Replies to a mail questionnaire by 825 sport parachutists affiliated with 103 parachute clubs are the data of this study. Questionnaires were administered by officials of the individual clubs and asked about the experience of fear and enthusiasm, personal and social characteristics of the parachutists, attitudes relevant to sport parachuting, and included the Ma and Hy scales from the MMP1, a Draw-A-Person Test, and four story stimulus pictures of parachuting situations. Only the jump experience, an analysis of the stories told about one picture, and a few social characteristics are reported in this paper.
