Mission:
Our goal is to select 50 participants for the Vertical World Record taking place at Skydive Chicago on July 30 – August 3, 2018. During this Jan 2018 tryout around 25 participants will be selected. There will be a second tryout at Skydive Arizona March 31 – April 1, 2018 where the additional participants will be selected.

If you receive a slot you will be part of the initial record attempts, but there is no guarantee that you will not be rotated on and off the bench based on your performance on the attempts.

This camp is also a training opportunity to continue to hone your skills. You may not receive a slot at this tryout, but the training you do will help you prepare for future big ways. There will be thorough debriefs and pre-briefs of the jumps.


Who Can Participate:
You must be able to safely fly on level and in your slot in a larger head down formation.
You must be able to safely approach and breakoff from a larger head down formation.


Safety Requirements:
If you are flying in an unsafe manner in any way you can be cut from the event and will not receive a refund. This includes on approach, in vertical freefall, on breakoff, or under canopy.  


Event Details:
We will do about 5 jumps per day, 10 jumps total over the event.
Saturday: single plane shot to 13,000 feet AGL
Sunday: formation loads to 16,000 feet AGL
The exact details of this schedule and event are subject to change based on logistics and/or weather.
