The U.S. Parachute Team has a long, proud tradition of representing the United States in international parachuting competitions dating back to the 1950s. This year is especially exciting, with Fédération Aéronautique Internationale first-category World Championships in all events, including the first time the Canopy Piloting World Championships comes to the United States!
The U.S. Team consists of our nation’s best aerial athletes in all disciplines. They are our representatives on the international skydiving stage, charged with showing the rest of the world the skill, precision and professionalism of skydiving in the United States.
While making the U.S. Team is a great honor, did you know that most of our competitors pay their own training expenses and travel costs for the World Championships? Often costing thousands of dollars per competitor, these meets are only partially subsidized by the U.S. Parachute Team Trust Fund.
We invite you to explore this site, get to know the athletes on your 2014 U.S. Team and lend them your support.
