AMPA - American Military Parachute Association. Does only military static line for former Airborne and civies who never got to go to Airborne school. They hold a full fledged military jump school twice a year. They're also the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team (does the WWII reinactments for movies and D-day stuff in Europe).
Nobody has time to listen; because they're desperately chasing the need of being heard.
