The event was organised in collaboration with FFP, the French Parachutist Federation. Organized by Carl Chevalerias and Max Diebold, the competition will stick for long in the minds of many!

Participation and results

With 44 participants, it is the biggest 2020 Wingsuit event!
With 13 teams in acrobatics, it is also the biggest WS acrobatics competition ever. The current World champions, Fly Like Brick, honored the French wingsuit scene by participating in the open category.

In National 2, competition was even closer with “les Papas” composed of Arnaud Longobardi, Stephane Zunino and Olivier Basset winning with a short lead in front of Smilers and Suit Up!

In performance, Josselin Danjoie (1st), Gael Leblanc (2nd) and Guillaume Hochard (3rd) finish within 20 points of each other!

We can hope to see some of the more accomplished athletes move to National 1 next year.

  . Speed: Max Diebold with 274.6km/h
  . Time: Flavien Mazzon with 95.7s

3 acrobatic records:
  . World and European record of most points: Fly like Bricks team with 32 points (video)

The event got blue skies all weekend and had no cutaways or other incidents to report :).

So what’s next? 

If the competition showed anything it’s that France has a lot of motivated, serious, safe and skilled wingsuit pilots willing to compete. Some discovered the competition formats and what it can bring to their sport, others would love the chance to represent France officially at the World Championship next year in Russia.

After all, it was in France that the first modern suits and pilots were born!
