"To organize the world championship in Prague in indoor skydiving was from the beginning a huge challenge for us. The event has to be planned well in advance, so we originally asked FAI to host it up in 2016. But, as even-numbered years are usually dedicated to FAI outdoor championships, we decided to risk it and prepare the first world championship for flying in the tunnel this year . And according to preliminary reaction, it seems that around 300 participants are expected to show up in Prague, which would be great, "says Jiri Blaska, director of the organizing committee of the first World Championships in the indoor skydiving 2015.
