The remaining jumper reported that when he began to exit the airplane, he noticed it was descending, but it was too late for him to stop. Shortly after departing the airplane he contacted the horizontal stabilizer and became destabilized. The pilot then experienced flight control issues with the airplane. The pilot regained control of the airplane and landed without further incident, and the skydiver regained control and also landed without further incident.
