The Falcons are the UK’s premier military parachute display team, based at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, they display at venues all over Britain and Europe throughout the year.. They have performed many times for the Royal Family and heads of state and set records and introduced many exciting innovations into formation skydiving.
The Royal Air Force is responsible for training and supporting all UK Airborne Forces. As well as providing a distinctive demonstration of freefall and canopy skills during the display season, each Falcons Team member undertakes continual advanced training as Parachute Jumping Instructors in preparation for future employment in support of the Parachute Regiment, the Royal Marines and other specialist units.
The RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team is the only centrally funded, professional, military parachute display team in the UK. Their exciting free fall display, which includes advanced manoeuvres, falling at speeds up to 120mph, and their famous unique non-contact canopy stack manages to captivate all spectators.
The newest aircraft in the RAF Falcons fleet and our primary jump platform is the Dornier 228. Provided by Summit Air, this dual engine aircraft with side door exits provides everything that the RAF Falcons need to produce the exciting show you will see today.
