Congratulations to SeungGi! 😀
An army official disclosed that “Lee Seung Gi who’s currently receiving SWC’s basic airbrone training did a parachute jump from a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft this afternoon.”
It’s noted that Lee Seung Gi bravely jumped out of the transport aircraft with his comrades at an altitude of 730 meters and had landed safely.
Lee Seung Gi’s basic airborne training will be completed on April 29.
Lee Seung Gi already received parachute jump training using hot-air balloons on April 25 & 26.
This training was conducted with one instructor and 6 recruits riding the balloon to an altitude of 300 meters and then making parachute jumps by turns.
Because the hot-air balloons wobble in the air, the recruits have to conquer their fear of heights. It’s reported that Lee Seung Gi also passed the balloon jumps without a hitch.
On April 28, Lee Seung Gi will wrap up his parachute jump training by jumping out of a CH-47 helicopter at an altitude of 500~600 meters.
