What is Fantasy Swoop?

The fantasy swoop event has to be the most dynamic event here at Skyquest. Skydivers will jump from an altitude of less than one mile (which is easily visible to the public), open their parachutes pretty quickly and then set up for a 40 -60 MPH swoop landing, right in front of the crowd. The event requires competitors to actually make contact with the water on their swoop landing before they then control their high performance wings to a precision landing.

The Pond Swooping event promises to be one of the most attractive and exciting events of SkyQuest 2001. Two perfectly located and shaped ponds allow approaches according to the current wind direction at any time. The individual-player competition will be held from a jump altitude of 5,000 feet over a total of four competition and four practice rounds.
