Did You Know...... that the Danish 4-way project shows progress?
Project team Vitesse in front of the Pink Skyvan
The weather allowed only two rounds on the first day of meet in Denmark, which were completed within three hours before sunset. The remaining six rounds were done next day between sunrise and late morning and then again on the hours before sunset. These were busy hours for the Pink Skyvan, which was the jump plane for the competition.

The other two teams of the Danish 4-way project, Vitesse and Elements, showed respectable performances over the eight rounds and were able to discover some weak areas to work on before the national championships, as Mikael Toft evaluated the progression of the team project.
A Class team SkyXtreme
Three of the SkyXtreme members have been in the sport for only two years. Mikael Toft could already see the potential of the team to become part of the 4-way project one day. SkyXtreme won the A Class competition with a 9.0 average, which tied the highest recorded A Class meet average of all meets this year.
A Class team The Gokkers
"We have seen Formation Skydiving competition grow in Denmark in the past years. More people go to the wind tunnels since England has opened two new ones and is nearby, and it pays of when we look at the overall standard of personal skills for the single person."
Project team Elements
Mikael Toft said that the event was a great success with a lot of fun, and it will be repeated at the national championship of Denmark this year. The DaneZ will now move on with more wind tunnel training this week and a 7-day training camp in Germany before the World Meet 2006.
