Leapfest is the largest, longest standing, international static line parachute training event and competition

Leapfest is the largest, longest standing, international static line parachute training event and competition.


The purpose of the competition is to promote the camaraderie and Esprit de Corps of the Airborne Soldier through international competition.  The competition is routinely attended by representatives from the Active Army, Army Reserve, Army National Guard, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and several international teams.

Each team consists of 5 participants: 4 jumpers and 1 alternate jumper. Jumpers exit from a CH-47 Chinook helicopter at an altitude of 1500 feet (457 meters) using an MC-6 static line, steerable, parabolic parachute.

Participants aim to land as close as possible to a marked, designated area within the landing zone. Upon landing and completing a PLF (parachute landing fall), participants are timed by qualified judges until they reach the designated area.

This is both an individual and team event. Each jumper must complete 2 jumps to be qualified for the individual award, and each team must complete 8 jumps in total to be qualified for the team award.In addition, we will be hosting a foreign jump exchange followed by a foreign jump wings pinning ceremony
