Nathan Goodman died during a military freefall training exercise near Eloy, Ariz. Goodman was a member of the 3rd Special Forces Group ( Airborne ). Earlier this summer, six soldiers were injured during jump training on Grafenwoehr Training Area in Germany after they landed in trees.
Airborne school is not hard , you just have to pay attention. Even then, it’s taught in such a way, almost silly, so it’s very memorable; but it needs to be memorable because it’s a controlled fall from over 1000ft above the ground.
It is standard procedure for the Army Safety Center to investigate any time there is a training related death, Manganaro said. While Airborne training at Fort Benning has a tremendous safety record, Manganaro said, it is inherently dangerous .
Use the Parachute Landing Fall (PLF) despite proper training. Landing is when most injuries happen. Paratroopers usually land at a speed around 13 mph, resulting in a landing force that is comparable to jumping off of a 9-12 foot wall.
