EADS Formation Skydiving Team
Through its commitment to formation skydiving, EADS is promoting a sport which is ideally suited to conveying such values as precision, trust, teamwork, continuity and reliability. Mankind's eternal dream of flying, which drove on the founding fathers of EADS, is fulfilled and portrayed impressively by formation skydiving: precise flying using only one's own body. In formation skydiving, the jumpers must show various formations quickly and precisely whilst in free fall. A competition jump consists of a sequence of five to six formations which are arbitrarily chosen from a predefined pool in a random order. The aim is to repeat this sequence as frequently as possible within the allowed working time.
