About The Challenge

The best indoor tunnel flyers take part in the planet’s richest indoor tunnel flying event, with global teams battling for a share of $200,000. The festival sees competitors fight it out across disciplines and categories, from four- and eight-way Formation Skydiving to Dynamic Skydiving (two- and four-way) and Best Trick. The contest also welcomes younger (under-18) flyers.
