8th FAI European Canopy Formation Championships
10th FAI World Cup of Canopy Formation
Strejnic, Romania - 17-20 August, 2019
In the early 1980’s, some skydivers began flying their new generation airfoil designed parachutes in formation with each other, often with one skydiver sitting on top of another’s canopy, using the legs or hands to stay attached. This practice quickly became popular with a number of adventurous skydivers, who worked to develop these skills into a recognised competition discipline.
The term Canopy Relative Work was used to describe this activity in its beginning and this was shortened to CRW (often pronounced Crew) which is still used by many today, although Canopy Formation is the official term.
Please come back and read daily notes from the competition, when it has started.
