Parachute Jumps are a series of challenges available to all three protagonists. They become available after the completion of the first Dom Beasley’s mission. It’s necessary to complete all 13 jumps to get 100% in the statistics. They can be found in Social Club under the section “Hobbies and Pastimes”.
Parachute jumps are divided into two categories: Base Jumps and Helicopter Jumps. In all jumps, you need to land at a marked point or on a moving vehicle. In some jumps you also need to fly through checkpoints. For each successful jump, you earn a cash reward based upon various factors, including how close to the target you landed, how many checkpoints you hit, and so on.
Jumps can be performed multiple times, but after the first successful attempt, the reward is significantly reduced.
