I would like to see about getting an amendment to the BSR’s allowing ”Military Re-Enactment Groups” to be considered to operate within the BSR’s the same way the ‘military orders’ jumps do.
My apologies. I should have taken the time earlier to look this up. See the section of the new Advisory Circular, then take the discussion from there. (The AC may not address these groups in an ideal way yet.)
(To make this work USPA might need to consider re-inactment parachute jumps to not be a "skydive", much like they consider military jumps to not be under USPA rules, so that re-inactment participants who are USPA members would not be violating a BSR.)
NOTE: In addition to landing area size requirements, the FAA also imposes qualification and currency requirements found in the Parachuting Special Provisions listed in FAA Order 8900.1, Flight Standards Information Management System (FSIMS), located at http://fsims.faa.gov. Parachuting demonstrations that seek relief from any requirement listed in these special provisions must have a letter of approval from the FAA General Aviation and Commercial Division (AFS-800), Federal Aviation Administration, Flight Standards Service, Room 821, 800 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20591 (e.g., airborne reenactment by civilians for reduced experience or lower opening altitudes).
