Chuck MacCrone – Inductee 2013 – Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame
Chuck MacCrone, D-526, made his first skydive in 1962 and had a long, stellar career as one of the sport’s steadiest guiding hands, beginning with regional accuracy and style circuits and culminating on the highest international stage, the FAI’s International Parachuting Commission (which sets world policy and rules for competitive skydiving events). He was president of the IPC for an unprecedented six terms, only retiring from that post because of a term-limit rule change. MacCrone was a nationally rated judge who developed the Equislope scoring system used worldwide in the heyday of style and accuracy competition. A former USPA Board member, he retired from skydiving with 849 jumps in 1974 and received the association’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 1984.
