Craig O'Brien | Aerial Cinematographer
Craig O'Brien has accomplished so much that often his title as a 5-time US National Champion and 3-time World Champion is overlooked! This oversight only happens because of the glowing items on his resumé which includes filming the epic skydiving scenes in Iron Man, Iron Man 3, Kingsman, Godzilla, Point Break, the Hangover III, The Bucket List, Charlie’s Angels,  and perhaps the most iconic skydiving scene ever filmed - the famous HALO jump out of a C-17 military aircraft from 25,000’ with Tom Cruise in frame for the movie Mission Impossible Fallout.

Marc Tripari - DZO, Skydive Newport
In the community of skydiving, Marc Tripari emerges as a luminary. Childhood escapades, like makeshift Superman jumps, paved the way for a 38-year passion, recording over 10,000 jumps. An audacious jump in his mid-20s was more than just youthful bravado; it set his life's trajectory. His unforgettable leap in 1997? A tandem jump diverting to the Kennedy Space Center, a legal whirlwind, and a story now woven into his storied career. Marc is a skydiver's, skydiver and a DZO who takes his responsibility very seriously.
