Parachute Team : 2013-WPPT Wind Tunnel Training

WPPT Wind Tunnel Training
From 16-18 February 2013, twenty-five cadets and an officer representative from the West Point Parachute Team conducted wind tunnel training in Nashua, NH. During the three day period, the Team utilized seven and a half hours of freefall time. While the upperclassmen focused on flying ability and coaching, the Plebe class prepared for their upcoming student course by gaining a basic understanding of body control and stability. There were no injuries or accidents during the training, and the Team maintained its excellent relationship with Tunnel staff and Armory representatives.
