WPC 2014 - Official Invitation

Uptade 20.07.2014 - The 2014 World Parachuting Championships will be held from 25th August till 31st August 2014. The official competition jumps will begin on Tuesday 26th August, right after Monday's (25th August) team registration and solemn, publicly accessible opening ceremony.  The competition jumps will last till Saturday 30th August followed by awards ceremony and closing ceremony. All jumps will be performed from the three L-410 aircraft specially prepared just for the championships.

Skydivers will compete in the following categories and disciplines. The first category is FS (Formation Skydiving), which is divided into a 8-way formation and 4-way formation groups. Perhaps the most interesting competition of the discipline can be considered vertical FS, in which athletes show they caught up to 35 formations for 30 seconds and all the free fall upside down at speeds over 300 km per hour. The second category is so-called Artistic Disciplines, including Freeflying, where a trio of riders are trying to deny the laws of physics and showing acrobatic creations and Freestyle Skydiving, which can be described as an aerial ballet.

This year´s brand new discipline will be Speed Skydiving. In its WPC premiere, as the title suggests, that this is a very adrenaline discipline in which the winning contestant achieves the highest speed at a specified time of a free fall (speeds are around 400 km/h).
