Formation Skydiving (FS) is one of the classic discipline of Indoor Skydiving where flyers maintain a belly-down orientation and build formations with accompanying teammates.
Formation Skydiving is a common starting ground for new competitors because it does not require advanced freefall skill and provides measureable progress.
Competitive Formation Skydiving divides categories by number of team members – 2, 3, and 4 person teams – and subcategories are divided by skill level.
These subcategories range from Rookie to Open (the most experienced), and differ by the number and difficulty of formations a team must build in each round of competition.
The tougher the class, the more formations the team is required to perform in each round. All formations are part of a Dive Pool – the standard set of moves grouped into Blocks and Randoms.
1-3 Judges (depending on the scope of the meet) will score the competition live from the flight deck or from video playback of a top-down or bottom-up camera with full view of the flight chamber.
