The FAI has ratified our European record!

logo_fai_2016We are proud to announce that the FAI has ratified our European record!
The compilation of the formation was determined by many aspects. Other jumpers could have flown on this jump, but the interchangeability of the wingloads and different sized parachutes forced us to a compromise.
Unfortunately, for reasons of weather, it was no longer possible to have all members of the project fly in a large formation. Either in the same size or even bigger than 25. We will continue to work to ensure that further participants can be represented in a European record.

    Thanks to Mary and to our US brothers. Especially Dave for his fancy acronym for us. We will suggest “crEUw dogs” in any case for one of our next shirts.

    Congratulations to the European CRW fliers on this new record. I’m sure many drinks have already been poured, but now we can toast the FAI recognition.
