LEAPFEST 2017 INTERNATIONAL AIRBORNE COMPETITION - 3119 Ministerial Road, West Kingston, RHODE ISLAND - UNITED STATE of AMERICA - August 5th 2017






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

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.
