The complement to our project, in Russia
After the last two CF national records registered in Russia (a 26-way in 2015 and 18-way sequential in 2016), participants in the Big Canopy Formation project are now preparing to set a new record with a 30-way, or bigger. The record attempts are scheduled for 15-17 September 2017 at DZ Aerograd Kolomna, which is 80 km from Moscow. The record attempt will be a part of the Russian Parachuting Championships.
The project is being lead by Denis Dodonov a Senior Coach with the Russian CF Team, a tenfold world CF-champion and a participant in the World Record 100-way CF formation. The participants’ experience is very diverse, ranging from world champions and well-known Russian jumpers to ‘weekend’ parachutists with just a few hundred jumps in their log books.
Recently, a Big CF camp took place at Aerograd Kolomna (24-25 June). Following on from this, camps will take place every month until September when the record attempt will happen.
