Annual Australian Indoor Skydiving Championships
The internationally recognised event is the largest indoor skydiving competition in the Southern Hemisphere, and the qualifier for Australians to participate in the World Cup happening later this year in Bahrain at Gravity Indoor Skydiving.
International competitors will find the Aussies hard to beat when flying superstars like 12-year-old Gold Medal Junior Freestyler Amy Watson, and the Asia Pacific vertical formation skydiving record holders, Team Focus are confirmed to compete.
The 2017 championships saw 172 competitors across 86 teams compete; with the youngest entrant just six years old.
It's such a unique sport and that's what captivates people. You can improve to the point where it feels like you literally defy gravity and the more people become engaged in it, the more addicted they get.
Enter into the iFly building at Panthers and up stairs past a banner which reads Indoor Skydiving championships and then to the tunnel where there are indoor skydivers doing tricks.
