Livestream 2nd FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championship –
SkyVenture Montreal (CAN) –
October 18th – 23rd
Over 300 participants from 23 countries will be participating at the 2nd World Indoor Skydiving Championship. The SkyVenture Montreal will host these spectacular championships.
This is no mistake, indoor skydiving, or bodyflight, as it is now called, was shortlisted to become an Olympic sport, which creates a lot of excitement around the discipline and its athletes.
The world of body flight is new, but some athletes have already excelled on the international scene. The 14-foot diameter SkyVenture LLC wind tunnel reaches a top speed of up to 300 km/hour. Indoor skydiving is the simulation of true freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. A vertical wind tunnel has fans at the top to draw air through the flight chamber and then push it back down the sides through Return Air Towers (RATs). This results in a smooth column of air that enables you to “fly”. This exciting sport sees teams of skydivers perform an exact routine in some categories inside the described wind tunnel – the World Championships will see “body flight” reach a new level.
What is indoor skydiving?
Bodyflight is a new and revolutionary sport allowing one to fly in a vertical recirculatory wind tunnel, a technology that replicates free falling. The sport of bodyflight is recognized by the FAI, an organization supporting several worldwide annual competitions.
