Get in a heli or jet. Use a ladder to climb up a building/crane then jump off. Also, if someone in your squad puts down(outside) a squad beacon, you'll spawn in the air

Like Yem said, whenever someone who is a Recon class drops a Beacon on the ground somewhere, people in their squad can parachute down over it instead of using the random/squad spawns. People use it a lot to get on rooftops and the like to snipe or just to hide up high somewhere. If you use it indoors, then everyone will just spawn in that room, building, etc.

Word of caution, The chute works well jumping from aircraft. It does not work so well jumping from buildings.

Spawn Beacons 101 (if you feel the need to start playing with them now)

 

Spawning in on your own beacon will blow it up (you just throw down a new one).

 

Squadmates can spawn in on your beacon an unlimited number of times.

 

You can knife a beacon to destroy it. More stealthy than shooting it with your unsilenced weapon.

 

After the last patch, the direction you're facing when placing the beacon is how you (and squadmates) should be facing when spawning back in.

 

If you put down a spawn beacon, your squadmates will no longer be able to spawn off your person. Something to keep in mind if you place your spawn beacon down and then advance further up the map hoping somebody else spawns in on your new location.

 

Only maps with helicopters let you parachute from a spawn beacon placed outdoors. Maps without helicopters (like Seine Crossing, Grand Bazaar) will just have you spawn in on the beacon as if it were indoors.
