It is my honor to welcome you to the home of the legendary Golden Knights! Since 1959, the U.S. Army Parachute Team has proudly represented the men and women of our nation’s Army through cutting-edge, aerial parachute demonstrations and competitions both nationally and internationally. The team consists of over 100 active-duty Soldiers, Officers, Warrant Officers and Department of the Army Civilians, each bringing a variety of talents and skills from their experiences across the Army. Together, we represent the more than 1 million active-duty, national guard, and reserve men and women who serve around the world.

Due to the nature of the Army’s mission abroad, many of our nation’s citizens have limited contact and exposure to Soldiers and their families. The Golden Knights serve to connect America’s people to their Army by showcasing modern sport parachute exhibitions that pay homage to the Army’s daring and historic airborne operations.

Our enhanced aerial demonstrations highlight the pinpoint precision of our ram air accuracy canopies, synchronized freefall and canopy formations, gravity-defying wing suiting and high-performance landings. Our modified DHC-8/C-147A and UV-18C Viking Twin Otters serve as the backbone of the team and provide perfect paradrop platforms to deliver our jumpers on target anywhere in the country in plus or minus 30 seconds.

As we enter our 65th year of aviation and parachuting excellence, I extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for the trust you’ve placed in us to fulfill our mission of representing the Army and our nation pride and distinction. The team has a long tradition of professionalism, teamwork, safety, and camaraderie that will pave the way for future generations. We’re excited and grateful to share that tradition of service with you at one of the over 100 events we perform each year.

On behalf of the entire US Army Parachute Team, we look forward to seeing you at one of our exciting shows this season. Please come talk with us after the performance about one of the many ways you can Be All You Can Be!
