RCPT-USA members incur significant expense in honoring the Airborne troopers that have preceded them. They purchase their own reenactment uniforms, parachutes, and pay their own travel to training and Airshow events. Parachutes cost $800 each, reserves must be repacked every 6 months at $70 each, distinctive historical uniforms - $200, WW2 helmets - $150, and brown Corcoran jump boots are $200. So, you average Paratrooper jumping at an airshow has invested $1500 in gear, and usually $500 in airfare to perform.
Any Donation to offset the price of gear, travel costs, team insurance, coordination costs, aviation radios, drop zone gear would enable RCPT-USA to reach more audiences to teach the hard won traditions of the Airborne!
