I thought cycles was the main metric?

Not sure but cycles do come into play for pressurized planes. Your smaller 737s etc rack them up much quicker due to their short hop flight nature.

Free falling is fscking awesome, done it a few times. You forget about any issues and just enjoy it, quite liberating.
A lady once offered to pay for my first tandem jump. I politely declined.

How is that bad weather? Ive seen aircraft fly in thunderstorms and snow blizzards.

A plane free falling is nothing like freef falling on your own.
Anyone know what terminal velocity of a 737 looks like?

Good point. If the fall isn't too violent, it will settle into a false-calm. Especially less detectable at night away from city lights.
