GTA 5 Hobby - Parachuting

Parachuting is a side activity available in Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online, and is split into two categories: Base Jumps and Helicopter Jumps.

Parachute Jumps become available after completing Dom Beasley's Strangers and Freaks mission Risk Assessment. Each jump requires the player to parachute and land on a specific target. Some jumps require the player to move through checkpoints, and some don't.

Cash rewards are awarded to the player based on various factors, such as how close the player landed to the center of the target, and the number of checkpoints hit. Rewards decrease significantly after the first successful attempt.

Completing all Parachute Jumps is required for 100% Completion of the game: completing all Base Jumps counts as one hobby, while completing all Helicopter Jumps counts as a separate hobby.

This side activity is also present in Grand Theft Auto IV.
