The SkyHawks
Canadian Armed Forces Parachute Team


Canadian Armed Forces Parachute Team - The SkyHawksThe Canadian Armed Forces SkyHawks Parachute team have been a crowd favourite as they land on beautiful Victoria Beach. In 2017 the SkyHawks will be with us on Sunday, July 2nd. Stay tuned for the time.

 

With their signature Canadian flag parachutes, The Canadian Armed Forces Parachute Team, the SkyHawks, is Canada’s only military parachute demonstration team. Over the last 41 years they have represented Canada and the Canadian Armed Forces to over 75 million spectators worldwide.

 

The show will begin when the SkyHawks jump from their trademark yellow aircraft 12,500 feet above Victoria Park Beach.

 

A sub-unit of the Canadian Parachute Centre, the Trenton-based SkyHawks 17-member team is drawn from the regular and reserve forces. They help provide instructor training to Canadian Forces around the world at air shows, in schools and at events like the Cobourg Waterfront Festival.

 

After the team members pack up their vivid red and white canopies, children and adults alike will be invited to meet the team, have autographs signed and have the opportunity to take once in a lifetime photographs.

 

The Canadian Forces SkyHawks are presented by the Rotary Club of Cobourg as a thank you to our community for its ongoing support of Rotary projects.
