1st World Wingsuit Performance Flying Championships - Registration and Countdown

Jackie Scorpion-articleAs Wingsuit performance flyers start to arrive at Zephyrhills all is ready for the 1st FAI World Wingsuit Performance Flying Championships to start.  This link will take you to the latest Registration picture, although this is subject to change up until the competition is declared open at the opening ceremony to take place on 3rd November 2016.

Currently there are 23 Nations registered for the Wingsuit Flying FCE's - 1 solely for the World Cup in Wingsuit Acrobatic Flying due to start on the 7th November + 5 other nations entering both events - in short 22 entries for the 1st World WPF Champiionships and 6 for the World Cup in WAF - 7 teams in all (but this may change).

That gives us a total of 63 competitors in Wingsuit Performance Flying from all 5 Continents and we welcome both Moldovia and Iran who are represented for the first time at a 21st Century FCE.  Also it is great to see competiors from both Singapore and India for the second FCE this year.  I will try and establish who has travelled the furtherest to attend this historic event in IPC's callender of amazing events this year.

Espen Fadnes from Norway is registered, hoping to repeat his Gold Medal performance of last year and become the first World Champion in Wingsuit Performance Flying, but as both silver and bronze medalists from 2015 are also here we are set for a great competition.

You can follow the results as they happen - keep up with the news with Skydive-tv - I will be reporting on this web-page and also posting regularly on the IPC Facebook page - and the organiser's web site is also available.wingsuit FCE
