Grand Theft Auto Flight School: Chase Parachute Lesson
Welcome back to Grand Theft Auto flight school, where we’re tackling the infamous chase parachute lesson in GTA 5. If you’re new to the game or struggling with this particular lesson, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. Let’s dive right in.
The chase parachute lesson involves jumping out of a cargo plane without a parachute, and picking one up on the way down. After that, you must maneuver yourself through the air to land safely in a small target area, all while avoiding obstacles like school buses and Barbie trucks.
The game does give you a chute, but for the purposes of this lesson, we won’t be using it. Instead, we’ll rely on our skills and some controller focus to guide us to the target.
We start inside the cargo plane, and it’s go time. Use the focus ability if you have an Xbox controller on PC, to keep an eye on where the shoot is. Take a dive to level yourself out, and gently maneuver towards the chute. It’s okay if you miss it a bit and have to circle back. Once you do grab it, ride a bit further down before pulling the chute.
Try to scrub some height off without slowing down too much. You’ll want that extra speed to help you maneuver through the air. As you approach the target area, adjust your angle to approach from the right-hand side. This will help you avoid the school buses and Barbie trucks that might get in your way. It’s a tight spot, but with practice, you’ll get it!
As you come down, dip a bit towards the residential area to scrub some height and slow down. Pull your legs up using the left and right triggers simultaneously to slow yourself down even more. The trick to landing is to aim for the outside circle rather than the middle. This will give you a bit of leeway before you stop running entirely. If you hit the outside circle, you’ll earn a gold medal and bragging rights among your GTA crew.
