Army Golden Knights are more than just a parachute team
While you see the parachute open, there are teams of Soldiers that work to make that happen. From the different parachute teams to the aircraft pilots and the behind the scenes people that handle the logistics of every jump, this unit is made up of all kinds of professionals.
The demonstration section consists of 26 members who travel around the United States, performing at various events in support of Army recruiting.
The tandem section provides Soldiers, heads of state, celebrities and other VIPs the opportunity experience the thrill of skydiving.
The competition section travels around the world to jump in various skydiving competitions.
The aviation team is comprised of the pilots, crew chiefs, and mechanics responsible for flying and fixing the team's two DeHavilland Canada C-147a and three DeHaviland Twin Otters.
The headquarters team organizes and provides logistical support for jumps and events. They are also responsible for getting the word out to the public whenever the Golden Knights are scheduled to perform.
