Demonstration Jumps and Air Shows

Looking for a group of Experienced Paratroopers to perform a Professional WWII Airborne Demonstration at your event or Airshow?  RCPT-USA is your jump team!

 The Round Canopy Parachuting Team - USA has a proven track record of conducting successful airshows from coast to coast. We use state of the art communications and drop zone planning to perform safe and professional airborne operations. We set up informative displays, interactive presentations, and jump preparation and command demonstrations on the aircraft staging line. RCPT-USA assisted in the planning and operations of Daks over Normandy in 2014 for the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy, and routinely participates in commemorations of Normandy and Market Garden parachute operations.

We can coordinate with other teams and reenactment groups to add realism to airshows and military events. We work with several WW2 veteran aircraft including the C-47's Tico Belle, Placid Lassie, Southern Cross, the C-53 D-Day Doll, the C-46 Tinker Belle, and other WW2 transport aircraft around the country.

RCPT-USA has a letter of authorization (LOA) from the Federal Aviation Administration, and obtains all required FAA documentation in our detailed planning process. RCPT-USA is a member of the International Council of Air Shows, and attends the ICAS convention annually.
