Skydiving Innovations conducted the first-ever skydiving show at the Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach on August 5th. As part of a multi-faceted client Olympic Ceremony kick-off program, five Skydiving Innovations performers were tasked with jumping large Olympic flags, a large client-branded flag, and a giant American flag banner, landing them all on the golf course fairway below the event site.
Professional skydivers Larry Barbiero, Michael Ford, JC Ledbetter and Ron Lee jumped the flags, while professional aerial cameraman Brian Binder streamed the jump live in high definition to screens at the event site. Client spectators at the site were able to “be in the aircraft and on the jump” with the Skydiving Innovations team, providing a one-of-a-kind vicariously thrilling experience.
Once the jumpers landed, they mixed and mingled with guests, answering questions about the thrilling skydiving show.
