Liberty Parachute Team

With matching red, white and blue, high-performance parachutes, colorful smoke, patriotic banners and "Old Glory" proudly waving, the skies over Wittman Field serve as a canvas for these aerial artists to showcase the national pride, honor and tradition that is EAA AirVenture.

Considered the premiere civilian parachute demonstration team in North America, the Liberty Parachute Team has been performing at air shows and special events nationwide for more than 20 years.

Team owners Doug Gipe and Larry Bartlett have assembled the top parachute demonstration performers in the country, and aggressively incorporated state of the art equipment and innovative training methods, setting the stage for the thrilling acts that follow.

Each team member averages 25 years of skydiving experience and has over 2,000 parachute jumps to his credit. They have all earned an 'Expert Parachutist' license as well as the ' Professional ' rating from The United States Parachute Association, placing them among the most elite skydivers in the world. 


What sets the Liberty Parachute Team apart from the rest is their use of pyrotechnics. Their giant "Candy Canes" of smoke and fire have become a trademark of their shows, as has their use of the spectacular 34-by-59-foot U.S. flag Mega Glory.
