Skydiving Group In Their 41st Season
The Canadian SkyHawks parachute team, the official skydiving team of the Canadian Forces, will make its first appearance at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in 2012 with performances during the daily afternoon air show. The 60th annual edition of EAA AirVenture is July 23-29 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
The SkyHawks will be performing Friday-Sunday, July 27-29 at Oshkosh, showcasing their skills through a variety of unique aerial maneuvers, formations, and other feats beneath their unique Canadian flag parachute canopies.
“The SkyHawks are among the world’s best parachute teams and we’re sure AirVenture attendees will see a dazzling show from them,” said Jim DiMatteo, EAA’s vice president of AirVenture features and attractions. “Their performances will make the Oshkosh air show, already regarded as the all-star week for air show performers, even better in 2012.”
Now in their 41st season, the SkyHawks will perform before millions of people at shows in North America, Brazil and Belgium. The unit has evolved from the initial unofficial team of sport parachute members of the Canadian Airborne Regiment in 1969 to today’s highly trained unit that is part of the Canadian Forces’ Centre of Excellence for Land Advanced Warfare.
