SA Nationals 2016 kicked off with the official training day today. This year's host, Pretoria Skydiving Club, was buzzing with activity as many of the 84 entered competitors loosened up for tomorrow's start.
The judges have been settled in for a few days already, attending a judging course in the latest FAI discipline, Wingsuit Flying. With 6 new Wingsuit trainee judges, 1 new FS trainee judge, PASA is excited to welcome this valuable injection of new enthusiasm and talent to the judging team. The judging team is reinforced this year with the very experienced, Kate and Bob Charters from the UK. Kate has also kindly been running the Wingsuit judging course. We owe a big thanks to the SSA Wingsuit and FS Committees for making it possible to bring Kate and Bob out.
The competition starts tomorrow with the FS 4-Way Open, Wingsuit Acrobatics, Canopy Piloting and Artistics.
