    That is some cool shit
    I am not too fond of heights so my hands were starting to sweat just watching ...
    Is the parachute deployed as soon as they exit the plane?

    Yeah it's a static line parachute so the parachute is deployed about 4 seconds after exiting the aircraft. It is always low level for tactical reasons so it has to be opened immediately. This particular jump is from 1250 ft. When I was back on the line we did jumps from 800 ft.
