Exhibition Jumps - The Aerial Express Parachute Team
The Aerial Express Parachute Team is a Saint Louis skydiving based professional group who has
been thrilling audiences with their exciting and colorful parachuting performances
for many years. Using state-of-the-art parachuting equipment, the programs they
produce dramatically enhance the numerous outdoor activities in which they
Sine the inception of the team in 1972, the group has grown from a fun-jump
pair to a contingent of some twelve professionally rated parachutists. Individual
members range in age from 25 to 45 years and the diversity of occupations they
represent encompass many walks of life. In addition to being licensed United
States Parachute Association Class D Expert Parachutists, the team members
are also Professional Exhibition Rated performers. These ratings as required and
approved by the Federal Aviation Administration are the standard by which
parachutists are evaluated and allowed to participate.
The impressive performance history of the team has included The V.P. Fair,
the Great Forest Park Balloon Race, the Annual Wehrenberg Balloon Race, the
Shriner's Air Show, Bevo Days, and numerous township celebrations in and
around the St. Louis area. The team has proudly performed for a number of
charitable organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the Variety Club,
and the Make a Wish Foundation.
The enjoyment of presenting their professional spectacle to both wide-eyed
children and delighted adults continues to be a satisfying response to the
skills the team has developed. After guiding their parachutes to a precision
landing in front of their audience, the team becomes a most attentive sounding
board for the many questions the audience always has. Fielding question while
re-packing their parachutes offers the general public an opportunity to
inquire more personally of the individual team members, and has become the
standard for a complete and professional program.

team just used to jump into the event.
