As the Gold Demonstration Team works their way into the second month of the Golden Knights Annual Certification Cycle, the resolute focus on the team remains with safety, target accuracy, and perfecting the show to bring to the public. After a strenuous first few weeks of five to eight jumps a day, Gold Team has found its rhythm and is working together like a well oiled machine.
The team has been conducting one to two Canopy Relative Work (CRW) jumps every day. This is where one jumper will fly their canopy right into the hands of another jumper at altitudes between 2,500 to 6,000 feet and bring in the stacked parachutes to land in the target area. Gold team has conducted many two and three stacks, along with a few side by sides. It takes a great amount of confidence in your teammates in order to conduct these maneuvers with precision and safety.
Gold Team let the sparks fly over Homestead, Florida while performing four night jumps. After three jumps at lower altitudes, personnel from Gold Team, Black Team and Tandem Team came together to perform a joint mass from 12,500 feet.
