Silver Wings Parachute Demonstration Team

Formed in 1965 by the director of the Airborne Department, the team can trace its origins back to 1958 from members of the Airborne-Air Mobility Command. The mission of the Silver Wings is to represent the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE), 1/507 PIR Airborne School, the US Army, while demonstrating the freefall capabilities of today's airborne forces.

Stationed at Ft. Benning, Georgia, each member of the Silver Wings is a qualified parachutist. Members of the team are from a variety of units on Ft. Benning with both military and civilian parachuting/freefall experience.

Since their first jump in August 1965, the Silver Wings have inspired countless airborne students, supported demonstrations around the United States and have been ambassadors of the Airborne School, the MCoE, Ft. Benning and the United States Army.
