Yes, but only on high altitude, not very high altitude(up to 25k feet).
This picture is a HALO/HAHO on very high altitude training, this is their advanced insertion method.
This gives a good overview of air insertions.

**Basic Air insertion and extraction capabilities**
For all operators regardless of insertion specialty:

*Rotary wing (Helicopter): Fast-rope, spy-rig, rappel and touch and go are the most common means of insertion for Special Operation Forces. Helicopters offer many advantages. They can be used in many weather conditions, limited landing zones, CASEVAC (Casualty Evacuation), are highly maneuverable and can be used for extra firepower.

*Fixed wing, fast landing attack.

*Static line parachuting up to 1000ft

*Free-fall: (up to 15000ft), both HAHO (High Altitude – High Opening) and HALO (High Altitude – Low Opening). This insertion method offers tactical advantages because it provides a large action radius and flexibility.

**Advanced Air Insertion**
Only for members of an air team.
The members of an air team are rigorously trained in parachute navigation, precision landings and executing tactical jumps in addition to helicopter handling capacities.
– Very High Altitude free fall (VHA): approximately 25000 Ft. Requires an additional medical profile because the crew and the jumpers rely on special equipment to provide oxygen during the flight. This type of deployment, from thin air, has distinct tactical advantages.The high dropping altitude enables operators to infiltrate long distances very discretely.
