Don't know about anyone else, but my number of landings exceeds the number of take offs.

Is hitting the ground with a parachute considered a landing?

Instructors demonstrate takeoff/landings all the time without one or the other to even it up. Captains take over takeoff/landings from FOs when the conditions are not suitable.

Yes youíre still present for the takeoff and landing - but your take off and landing tally may be not even.

......not thinking much of the rationale.....
every time I bounced it in, in a T-6 or a spring-gear taildragger, I still only logged it as one....

Surely more take offs than landings suggests either ditching on CFIT?

Why would you want to hit the ground with a parachute? Youíll end up ruining the pack itís in and besides what has the ground done to deserve being hit?
