World First - Skydiver Luke Aikins Jumps 25000 Feet Into Net With No Parachute

On July 30 2016, Skydiver Luke Aikins, made history, when he jumped from 25,000 feet out of an airplane without a parachute, landing safely in a net set up in the desert of Simi Valley, California, setting a world record.
Luke, who was 42 at the time of the jump, is a third generation skydiver, who has been skydiving since the age of 16 and has deployed a parachute more 18,000 times over the course of his skydiving and BASE jumping career.
Luke is also is a safety and training adviser for the United States Parachute Association, where he provides advanced skydiving training, to elite military special forces.
After jumping out of the Cessna airplane at 25,000 feet, Luke quickly reached a terminal velocity of 120 miles per hour.
Using his GPS, and only the air currents around him, he lined up his fall to the center of a specialized 100-by-100-foot net, which was designed to stop Luke's fall, as softly as if you were to stand on a trampoline, and merely drop onto your back.
The total time from jumping from the plane to hitting the net, took about 2 minutes. But when you are falling from 25,000 feet into a small net you can’t even see from 25,000 feet, I bet it felt like a life time.
Thanks for watching.

    ★★★ *FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VIDEO / FACT UPDATES* ★★★ *1) Is he wearing a parachute under his jacket?* - No he is not, Just before climbing into the plane to make the jump, Aikins said "he had been *ordered* to wear a parachute by the event organisers, but indicated he wouldn't open it. As the plane was climbing to 25,000 feet above the drop zone, he said the requirement had been lifted and he took the parachute off for the jump" *2) Just before he jumps at **0:19** is he throwing a Nazi Salute?* - He is instructing his camera man that "it's time to jump" *"Comment by Harry Hog "* - it's actually a military free fall hand and arm signal for the execution command of *“GO”* it’s standardized so it can seen in the day or night ★ Here is a diagram from a Military hand signals PDF - ★ Here is the PDF Link - *3) A man jumped out of a plane with no parachute, through a hole in a roof, onto a trampoline first* - That was a fake jump (CGI / Clever Editing) and a publicity stunt for a trampoline park - Here is an article link *4) He was not the first, in 2012 a man jumped out of a plane with no parachute, and landed on boxes* - I have had a few people mention this stunt, and I cannot believe it needs to be pointed out to these people, he wore a WINGSUIT! and glided onto boxes. TOTALLY DIFFERENT STUNT! *5) What is the point of the jump* - Now these are my own opinions on this question, but what is the point of climbing Mt Everest, or any mountain for that matter, and people will tell you "because it's there", now Luke achieved a few things doing this jump, that 99.9% of people do not achieve climbing Mt Everest. - He was the first to do it, and being first always makes anything worth it. - He was already highly experienced and skilled in skydiving, this is just another feather in his cap, showcasing his skill. - To do something in his field of expertise that has never been done before and to show it can be done, like the first back flip on a Motorcross bike or Monstertruck. - This was televised live on TV, making it even more impressive, can you recall the last televised climb of Mt Everest? no me either. - He is now listed in the Guinness Book of Records for this jump. - All these things combined, now make him a much more sought after skydiver trainer or consultant. Now all of the above points may be valid, but it could also be as simple as, he just wanted to do it *6) What is the point of wearing a Helmet?* - Helmets are for when exiting the plane (jumping out) encase they hit their head on the plane they will not be knocked out when falling. Also you can actually survive a fall to the ground at terminal speed, but would still take severe injury including head injury. But I think you will find the TV show, Insurance company and officials required he wore it. It's also a precaution encase you hit one of the other jumpers in mid air and knock each other unconscious. *7) How did he adjust his trajectory to hit the net?* - During free-fall a skydiver can perform a variety of maneuvers such as spinning, moving forward, moving backward, just by changing the shape of his body to "catch" the wind a certain way. In other words subtle changes with his arms and legs. *8) How high is 25,000 feet in metric?* - it's 7,620 mtrs, although why anyone really needs to know that is beyond me, you can clearly see it's HIGH UP!, also planes fly at 30,000-35,000 feet, so clearly it's high. Mount Everst is 29,030 feet or 8,848 mtrs. *9) Why jump from only 25,000 feet, why not higher?* - Ann Kathrin said in the comments "it was an unpressurized Cessna 208 Caravan with a service ceiling of exactly 25,000 ft." *10) How did the cameraman land, what happen to him?* - You will notice in the video at 2:58 that the 3 extra parachuters next to Luke (all in black) opened their parachutes, the footage at 3:11 is from a GoPro on Lukes chest, which you will see at 1:07 *11) He almost missed the net, he was very close to the edge* - Yes he was, he stated in an after jump interview, once he knew he was over the net, he just focused on rolling over and not worrying about being perfectly in the center. Here is the link to the after interview, the responce is at the 1min mark - *12) People keep jokingly commenting "How did that net support the weight of his massive balls"* - Well it almost didn't, here is a video Luke uploaded 4 months ago, AFTER I made my video of the jump, so I was not aware of it. It was a drop test of a weight bag to test the net system, and on the first test, the weight went right through the net. This is why I believe there were 2 nets, encase he fell through the first one. *LINK* - *13) why are there over 10k dislikes on this video* - I can't truely answer that, but I have read a lot of comments and I think because people feel it was such a reckless stunt, such a near waste of life and for what? (now I answered "for what?" on question 5, so go read that), but I can understand peoples opinions on this topic. it was a very reckless stunt, but performed by a highly skilled person with a lifetime of experience.

    Free patent idea. Terminal velocity in this video was 120mph. Survivors of vehicle accidents have reached these speeds with complete stops and not continuing through with inertia depletion over area. Jump suit with an emergency cylinder releases a (specific or multitude of gas types) once below an altitude that no parachute or reserve chute would be successfully deployed to surround all joints and head area in thin lining expandable cushions. If impact is detected another trigger will accurately release higher than normal oxygen to the mask area. EKG should be innovated into the suit, gps, and direct bypass of 911 (while allowing them to retain information) to the nearest helicopter hospital response team; linked to the highest care specialist on line to give an immediate go. Our technology is here people. Let's not get in the way of ourselves. I just threw this together on a whim. A specialized group of capitalists or people that care could bring this way ahead of my simple thoughts for money or to save lives. I don't care; I think they can do both and I want us to use that technology for new innovations.

    This post was not meant to take away from Luke's devotion, expertise, training, willpower, courageousness, and so many other characteristics I daily wish to live up to. I responded with the idea because I feel (and I may be wrong) that a better understanding could save lives or push that risk level to again have an opportunity to live. He risked/s it all for everyone's future.

It’s cool he jumped out of a plane without a parachute but was cooler is that he made himself do it. What did you do today what are you willing to do tomorrow can you make yourself do it?

    The only trouble is when a person engages in high risks stunts such as this, they usually aren't 6ft above ground much longer. One too many examples have been proven time after time.

    He's lucky that an unexpected gust of wind did not come along a blow him off course when he was only a few hundred feet off the ground! It's a dangerous stunt, but that made it "newsworthy". I'm wondering if anyone will try it the next time WITHOUT a net! I'm thinking of some sort of suit made up of inflatable balloons. About 1,000 feet off of the ground the daredevil would pull a rip cord and that would then cause four large balloons to inflate all around his body: one in front, one in back, and one on each side of him. He would be located in the center of the close cluster of four balloons. The increased surface area would slow him down and when he hit the ground, he would bounce a few times before coming to a stop. He would then use a knife to make cuts in the balloons to let them deflate until he could release his harness and crawl out from the four deflating balloons. I think they used something similar to this to land a rover on Mars. It was inside of a tetrahedral carrier that came down on a parachute. A few hundred feet off the surface, several balloons inflated on each of its floor sides and the cable to the parachute was cut. It then fell to the surface and bounced around until it came to a stop. The balloons all deflated and then one of the sides of the tetrahedral carrier flipped open and down and served as a ramp for the rover to drive out of the carrier and down to the surface. IIRC, they called it a "beach ball landing"! It worked perfectly, but I think they only used it once.
