SaarlouisThe 21st FAI World Cup & European Championships were held in Saarlouis, Germany. Skydive Arizona‘s 4-way VFS team Arizona X-Force attended to compete against some of the best teams in the world. The competition aircraft was the Cessna Grand Caravan. Unfortunately we were only able to complete four out of the 10 rounds due to weather. X-Force finished the meet in 4th place with a 13.5 average. SDC Core averaged 19 for the gold, with GK VFS pushing them hard and averaging 18.25 for silver. Congratulations to all competitors for their performances.
