Competition Team arrives in Germany

The Golden Knights 8-way and Women’s 4-way Team are currently in Germany preparing for the World Cup in Formation Skydiving. Saarlouis, a city nestled amongst rolling hills in German farm country, is host to the 2011 World Cup and European Skydiving Championships. The Golden Knights are representing the USA at this International Competition, which is attended by over 20 different countries.

The Team has completed 5 training jumps on site in order to learn the landscape and the aircraft. The Super Caravan used for the Competition has a slightly smaller exit door than the Twin-Otters used by the Golden Knights for training. The training jumps went very well, and the Team is very excited to start the Competition and represent the USA!
