The 2014 USPA National Championships of Canopy Piloting begins May 20, 2014.
Last year a record 79 canopy pilots (including 22 guest competitors from seven countries) took part in the 2013 USPA National Championships of Canopy Piloting at Skydive City Zephyrhills in Florida. The competition was friendly and fierce and the performances spectacular, filled with high drama and a slew of new records, capped by a climactic finish in zone accuracy between reigning 2012 World Champion Curt Bartholomew and world distance record holder Nick Batsch, with Batsch edging out Bartholomew to take overall gold.
This year’s championships, returning to Zephyrhills, promises to be even more thrilling, with a turnout expected to exceed last year, in part because the meet is a dress-rehearsal for the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale World Championships November 1-8 at Skydive City, with eight coveted slots on the U.S. Team at stake. Competition runs May 21-23, preceded by a Florida Canopy Piloting Association meet the weekend before. If you plan on attending, be sure to visit USPA’s CP Nationals Facebook page.
