Florida Swoop League kicks off the season

Swoooop!

The first meet of the season for the Florida Canopy Piloting Association kicked off at Skydive DeLand this past weekend. This has traditionally been one of the busiest leagues in the country, drawing competitors from all over the world.

This weekend was no exception as 25 competitors registered to compete. It was a good mix of pro pilots and amateurs and in this traditionally dominated male event, three swoopettes showed up to compete. Greg Windmiller slipped on his speedy pants went on to set a new Florida distance state record by going 147.3 meters (or 483 ft). Nicely done.

Pablo Hernandez of PD Factory Team took 1st place, Brian McNenny of Slipstream Airsports 2nd and Greg Windmiller of the Army Golden Knights in 3rd – a truly star studded podium (please feel free to take the stud part however you’d like). Pablo pretty much owned this meet with 6 scoring rounds, leaving Brian and Greg to battle it out for 2nd place.

Check out this nifty 4 minute 16 second “teaser” video shot at the comp – thanks to meet director Albert Berchtold for sharing.
