The first ever sitfly formation state record has officially been set at Skydive Spaceland in Texas, now recognized as official home of the best sitfliers in the state. Picture is attached below.
We launched a 4 way base and had three stingers to make a 7 way. Record was built after two official attempts. Joe Getty was the photographer and Henry Butler was the certifying judge.
There was absolutely NO head down flying on this jump.
So which state will be the second to set their first state record? I hear Ohio is planning something soon.
I'm stoked that we got this going as a starting point to what I predict will be a lot more head up bigways in the future. This is a first stepping stone for much much more to come. I'd love to see this formation size beaten, and soon, but who will do it? We're formulating plans to break our own record within the next month and set the bar even higher. Maybe Skydive Dallas can do it? I heard none of those flailing monkeys even know how to sitfly
Skydive Crosskeys is reserving two turbine planes for the first US National Sitfly Formation record in August. I hope everyone starts practicing your head up exits and head up level slot dockings now!
