The Army formed the Golden Knights parachute team in 1959 to demonstrate its airborne parachuting skills to both Army personnel and to the public. The team, formerly called the Strategic Army Corps Parachute Team, is based at the Army's airborne headquarters, Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
The men and women who make up the Golden Knights are divided into six groups: The Black and Gold Demonstration Teams, the Formation Skydiving Team, and the Style and Accuracy Team, and an aviation section and headquarters section.
The team's trademark is performing precision aerial maneuvers while falling to earth at up to 120 miles per hour and then landing dead center on target.
The Black and Gold Demonstration Teams spend more than 230 days a year demonstrating their maneuvers and entertaining more than 12 million people at air shows and special events around the world.
The Golden Knights have performed more than 8,500 live aerial demonstrations in all 50 states and 47 countries, earning them the title of the "Army's Goodwill Ambassadors to the World."
