The jumping was performed from an An-26 aircraft at 800 meters height with paratroopers in full gear and using D-6 parachutes. The exercise also involved gathering at the landing site, terrain orientation and disguised advancement to the facilities of a hypothetical enemy.
In the near future, the cadets are going to perform water landing from a Mi-8 helicopter and practice the evacuation of a group with the help of Adapter-M1 removable on-board equipment.
The cadet's curricular involves six to seven parachute jumps in one year and 40 jumps during the entire training period.
