ALL the acrobatics and fun of indoor skydiving will be on show for a championship event.

The first WA Indoor Skydiving Championships will take place at iFLY Perth in Rivervale on November 25.

More than 20 competitors from WA, Australia and overseas will show of their skills in nine categories with the public able to watch for free.

Among the competitors are iFLY instructors Sam Millington and Dave Hyndman.

Rivervale resident Mr Millington said he had been skydiving for years and had completed about 1200 jumps.

“It started as a thrilling thing to do and it’s now a passion, I joined iFLY Perth when it opened in December last year,” he said.

“It’s a pretty fun job; we get to fly every day.”

Mt Lawley resident Mr Hyndman said there were a number of ways that competitors could score points.

“There is a formation category where you try to make as many formations as you can make,” he said.

“Freestyle is the crowd pleaser because you can have a lot more fun with it.

“We train about 20 hours per week and I compete at a few competitions each year.”
