Golden Knights

One of our major attractions can be found thousands of feet overhead. A particular source of Scotland County pride is the Golden Knights U.S. Army Parachute Teams, who use Laurinburg-Maxton Airport as their main training facility. Practice is open to the public and is held most weekdays from 8:30 – 2:00.

The Golden Knights have two demo teams, the Black Team and the Gold Team, and two competition teams. Their latest innovation are Tandem Teams that reach out to bring citizens closer to the sport of skydiving.

While never failing to deliver oohs and aahs, the Golden Knights aren’t mere entertainers. They spend countless hours working with local recruiters and students, showing the kinds of futures the U.S. Army can help them realize.
