Curiosity is not enough, you have to really want to do it, or you will not
appreciate it, and to do it safely.

The Sky Ranch at Gardener, NY has an Accelerated Free Fall program. It's
near New Paltz, NY; Exit 17 on NYS Thruway.

When you are two miles up, The world looks very different that when you
are 50 or 100 feet up. If you don't have problems being in small
airplanes, you will probably not have any height problems. If you really
have a strong desire to skydive, and experience it, your fear of heights
will not matter.
BTW, I think everyone has some fear of heights. Most people are not
paralyzed by it though. If this is you, you are just like the rest of us.
