About the Sport
Freestyle Swooping is the newest, cutting-edge air sports discipline that involves competitors flying at high speeds across a body of water in order to score points based on style and execution. Each competition round, the athletes jump out of a helicopter at 1500m/5000 ft altitude, then release the canopy straight away, before navigating towards the water surface. At 600 m/2000 ft above the landing area, they start a series of turns up to 1080 degrees in order to generate great speeds of up to 150 km/90 miles per hour; they use the speeds to propel themselves into executing highly technical freestyle moves across the body of water, prior to landing on the floating platform.
