Falcons Parachute Team

RAF Falcons Parachute Team

Display parachuting is one of the most difficult types of parachuting and requires hard work, a high level of skill and most importantly, trust in other Team Members and their equipment. This is why the RAF Falcons are Britain's premier Parachute Display Team.

The team will exit the aircraft individually between 5,000 - 9,000 ft. Once in free fall, the team will create an echelon formation, falling at speeds of up to 120 mph before deploying their parachutes on a signal from the team coach.

Once the canopies have opened safely, each team member will position himself above the person below to form the famous Falcons canopy stack.
