DIPC 2021: December 7-18, 2021
This year’s USPA Nationals will also be used to select the delegation for the 6th Dubai International Parachuting Championships 2021 in these events:

  • Accuracy Landing (two male teams, one female team, two individual juniors)
  • Canopy Piloting, including Freestyle (four competitors)
  • Formation Skydiving – 4-way, 4-way Female, 8-way, VFS (one team per event)

The DIPC competition will combine the two canopy piloting competitions--canopy piloting (zone accuracy, distance and speed) and canopy piloting-freestyle--into a single, four-event competition. Consequently, the criteria used to select the four DIPC competitors will be as follows: USPA will combine the 2021 USPA Nationals Canopy Piloting and Canopy Piloting-Freestyle results to create a four-event (zone accuracy, distance, speed and freestyle) leaderboard, from which it will fill the slots based on overall placement. 

Due to the very short timetable, qualifying competitors will be asked to commit to attend the DIPC no later than October 30, as the event final registration deadline is November 1. 

Those interested in team manager or head of delegation roles for the DIPC should contact the USPA Competition Department.

All details of the DIPC 2021 can be found in Bulletin #1.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to the USPA Competition Department at (540) 604-9740 x332 or competition@uspa.org.
