Only 16 days to go before the 1st World Cup in Wingsuit Performance Flying starts

Steve Bramfitt
Only 16 days before one of the most exciting new FAI/IPC competition disciplines takes to the skies above Netheravon.

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 Reocrds 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 NAC's 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 through 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.
