Arctic Pegasus


06/22/2014: One of the skill sets used with effect in Afghanistan has been precision air dropping.  This experience is being carried forward elsewhere.

In this video, footage is shown of a heavy cargo drop followed by Airborne Soldiers jumping at the Deadhorse drop zone for Arctic Pegasus 2014.

This mobility exercise enables the military to build proficiency in Arctic Airborne operations in extreme cold-weather conditions.

Arctic Pegasus 2014 is a Joint-Interagency Military training exercise held above the Arctic Circle, with a goal to enhance U.S. Army Alaska’s mobility and operability in arctic conditions.  

It is a collaborative effort between from the 6th Engineer Battalion, the Alaska Army National Guard, Air Mobility Command, and the Alyeska Pipeline Service.
