Jumping at 20,000 feet from a helicopter about the stadium, with perfect conditions, included the aerial team’s dynamic sky-diving expertise. Following the jump, the paratroopers talked to the cadets in the classroom for the rest of the day, telling their story on their journey to be a member of this unique team.
