 Airborne Unity

Round Canopy Parachuting Team- USA (RCPT-USA) is proud to promote the Unity of Airborne Troopers worldwide.  Static line military style parachuting is a community and RCPT-USA is proud to be a part of that community. We believe strongly in honoring history while safely enjoying the sport of military style static line parachuting. RCPT-USA welcomes all qualified jumpers, with proper certification, to join us at any of our training and proficiency events irrespective of team affiliation. Furthermore, we respect and support the decision of RCPT-USA team members who desire to participate with other parachuting teams. We understand that your time and availability is precious and understand that when you get a chance to stand in the door, you stand in the door. RCPT-USA also welcomes members of other teams/groups who desire to participate in official RCPT-USA events such as air shows, to join our team and maintain dual membership with their current team/group. Membership to RCPT-USA is a requirement of our insurance carriers for participation in official events.
