The SkyHawks

Canadian Armed Forces Parachute Team 


The Canadian Armed Forces Parachute Team, the SkyHawks, are Canada’s only military parachute demonstration team. The team comprises 13 demonstrators from the Canadian Army, the Royal Canadian Navy, and the Royal Canadian Air Force. This includes both Regular Force and Reserve members with diverse professional backgrounds.


Established in 1971, the SkyHawks have represented Canada and the Canadian Armed Forces with pride, performing in front of over 75 million spectators world-wide under their signature Canadian Flag parachutes. The team demonstrates the high standard of professionalism, dedication, and teamwork it takes to be part of Canada’s military.


The SkyHawks’ thrilling performance of daring manoeuvres brings their parachutes in close proximity to each other and requires a high level of skill, teamwork, and physical fitness. This discipline of proximity parachute flying is known as Canopy Relative Work within the skydiving community.


The SkyHawks are proud to join all Canadians in celebrating our national flag on their parachutes and reflect what it represents — a strong, proud and free country. Our national flag speaks to what we have accomplished together, to the historical moments that have served to define us, and to the promising future of this great country.
