Phil Curtis co-ordinated and took part in the first ever live television advert featuring a live sky-dive, in May 2008. 16 parachutists plus two camera crew took part in the jump, spelling out HONDA. Though a back-up had been filmed in advance, the live jump was successfully broadcast, timed exactly to fit into a scheduled ad-break on Channel 4. This ground breaking event has led to much public interest in parachuting, as well as the car being advertised, and triggered the International Parachuting Commission to redouble its efforts to attract televising of parachute competitions.
