Only 1.5 days to go before the 1st World Cup in Wingsuit Performance Flying starts

Steve Bramfitt
Only 1.5 days before one of the most exciting new FAI/IPC competition disciplines takes to the skies above Netheravon.

Saturday 23rd May 2015

This weekend is available for training jumps for those competitors who arrive early - and that opportunity is being taken advantage of alongside the normal weekend operation at this Drop Zone.

Blue skies, warm sunshine and low winds - just perfect conditions.  The organisation is geared up for the competition -  the Opening Ceremony will take place on Monday, 25th May at 17.00 hrs. waiting to emplane

 

60 competitors from 20 countries representing 5 Continental regions will take part:  58 male and 2 female (at the last count).

But the maths get even more interesting when you look at the new records that will be set.  Starting with a totally clean sheet the competitors  have the ability to establish:

6 Competition World Records and 4 Performance World Records

21 Continental Competition Records and 16 Performance Records

On top of those each top individual competitor per Nation, male and female, will be able to set National Records for both Competition (3) and Performance (2)

Giving a total of 145 (at the moment) possible records - would that be a record in itself?

The Chief Judge, Randy Connell, is already preparing for the paperwork involved from the Judges point of view, and plans, if there is a weather hold, to brief competitors on what they need to do file a record and as always we urge NACs to deal with any record claim they receive promptly in their interaction with the FAI.

The Army Parachute Association at Netheravon, England, is well prepared for the competition.  On top of this web site, the organisation's web site www.netheravon.com/wswc2015 will carry news and information throughout the competition we also believe that SKYDIVE TV may be there to bring us on-line images, interviews - check them out on www.skydive-tv.com.

What a way to start the summer of World Cups and European Championships!
