Headquarters Hit the Beach

The landing area at Jennette's Pier in Nags Head, NCThe Golden Knights perform at over 50 different locations throughout the United States and internationally every year. On most weekends both the Black and Gold Demonstration Teams are located in seperate locations. The Team receives many many requests to perform at many different events almost on a daily basis. But do to the fact that the Team schedule is created a year out, it is very hard to commit to many of these requests. But on occasion, the Headquarters section, mostly comprised of former Black and Gold demonstration team members, will jump into action. (more…)

Schedule Updates

Statue of Liberty JumpThe US Army Parachute Team performs more than 50 shows throughout the United States and around the world every year.  The scheduling process typically begins one year prior to an actual show. For prime consideration, event sponsors submit requests through the Department of the Army Office of the Chief of Public Affairs at the Pentagon not later than 1 September of the year prior to their event.  In November, the Army Parachute Team Operations office gets together with representatives from the US Army Accessions Command and US Army Recruiting Command to discuss which events would best support the US Army recruiting mission. The show schedule is released in December at the International Council of Airshows convention.  It is not too late however, to request a show after the official schedule is released.  Occasionally there are open dates in our schedule that can be filled throughout the year.  The Golden Knights will accept late requests for these dates. Sporting events such as NCAA, NFL, MLB events and NASCAR are prime examples of events that miss the official scheduling process (due to their own scheduling seasons) but can still be supported. Whether an event is requested during the scheduling season, or is a late request, the approval process takes some time and must go through the same procedures.
