For a few years now, the French Parachute Federation has offered disabled people (helped by specifically qualified tandem instructors) the possibility to discover skydiving both freefall and flight under canopy. Special equipment and techniques have been successfully developed for this purpose. We have called this HandiFly.
In 2014, the FFP went a step further and held the first French HandiFly National Championships for disabled people that were held at the same time and place as the regular National Championships. This was repeated in 2015.
Ten disabled participants took part in this unique event based on Freefall Style: each competitor jumps with a valid tandem pilot and performs four alternate turns without any assistance from the pilot. The performance is filmed air to air by an accompanying videographer and is judged by Freefall Style judges.
So what is our next step? The time has come for the French Parachute Federation to share its heartfelt values and show Europe what we have developed.
The first HANDI FLY EURO CHALLENGE will be organised and will be open to the whole skydiving community in order to develop HandiFly all over Europe.
The event will essentially be a competition for disabled Europeans, but not only.
It will also be a large media event at which tandem masters will have the opportunity to learn the specific technique required to carry disabled passengers, where there will be various exhibitions and presentations and where the general public will have the possibility to discover skydiving through a “discovery” jump or a tandem jump.
To encourage participation in this special event, the French Parachute Federation is offering:
