A huge thank you must go to His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammef Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Sports Council for his continuing Patronage, sponsorship and support of the Dubai International Parachuting Competition without which none of this would have been possible.
Also a thank you to the Emirates Aerosport Federation (EAF) and Skydive Dubai and the various committees and people who worked so hard to make this a success.

Three years ago Gillian Rayner of the International Parachuting Commission (IPC) and Axel Zohmann of the International BodyFlight Association met to discuss the feasibility of hosting a World Cup for Indoor Skydiving. The IPC went on to modify the “outdoor” rules for skydiving for use indoors to include four disciplines: Formation Skydiving (FS), Vertical Formation Skydiving (VFS) as well as for the artistic events which include Freefly and Freestyle.
In January of 2014, iFLY Austin’s Operations Manager Erin Horton secured the bid to host the 1st FAI World Cup of Indoor Skydiving. On November 13th, months of hard work came together as the President of the International Parachute Council, Graeme Windsor, declared the meet officially open. An air of anticipation passed through the banquet room for no one quite knew what to expect, as the weekend was to be the first of its kind.
