Ranking Lists - 2013 Finalised

Final Ranking ListNiels-Christians for 2013

Following the end of the season for FCE's the ranking lists for 2013 have been finalised.

There are few surprises as those Nations that have dominated in different disciplines continue to do so, however in one or two cases the failure to enter every possible First Category Event has had an impact.

Freefall Style and Precision Accuracy:

In the Male event the first position is spread between countries, for Accuracy : Slovenia, Style : the Czech Republic and Overall : Russia.  Russia however wipes the board in the Female events taking first position in Accuracy, Style and Overall.

Formation Skydiving;

The dominance of Belgium (first place) continues in the 4-Way Open event;  however despite France’s dominance of the 4-way Female event, first position goes to USA because they competed in all 5 of the FCE’s in the 4 years that count.  France continued their dominance of the 8-way and VFS events, but UAE are now in second place in VFS which could make 2014  interesting.

Artistic Events,

Great Britain take first place in Freestyle despite France’s dominance, due to consistence of entry but France retains their first position in Freefly.

Canopy Piloting

Continues with the dominance of the USA taking first place in all 4 elements of this discipline.

The ranking lists are available under the following drop-down menu:

Canopy Piloting - The Events Illustrated

Turning in on the Speed carve

Our sport is dynamic and visually stunning , but sometimes difficult to explain  to non participants.  For the World Games 2013 the FAI PR team put together single page illustrations to show what it was all about in terms of the Parachuting element.

These are designed to be shown on a big screed during an event or used in press packs to simply show what is the objective of the competitors.  The photographs can be seen by folowing the link to Our Sport and Canopy Piloting.  .pdf versions are available also on the following links.

 Speed (1 & 2 ) were designed for the rules used specifically for the World Games, but Accuracy and Distance are currently accurate.


Another first for Dubai

IMG 0477 Jarrett Martin copyJarrett Martin, a Junior member of the USA Freefall Style & Accuracy Team qualified to compete at the 4th DIPC (Dubai International Parachuting Championships) – however Jarrett is different from other competitors in that he is paraplegic.  So USPA sought the agreement of the organisation in Dubai for Jarrett to enter.

The response was an emphatic yes “We should do everything in our power to support such a young man’s athletic desire and ideals”

This is Jarrett’s story – his refusal to allow the results of his accident to alter his drive and determination to follow his sport and achieve his goals is truly inspiring:
