Skydiving in the St. Louis Area

Exhibition Jumps - The Aerial Express Parachute Team

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 participate.

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.

Children are particularly excited to meet the team, and members are more than willing to sign autographs, as well as T-shirts! Imagine the thrill that children receive when they get to try on the actual parachuting gear that the team just used to jump into the event.
