It you are planning, thinking about, or hoping to compete at this year's Wingsuit Flying World Cup in Nevada, then now is the time to pre-register - IT DOES NOT COST ANYTHING AT THIS STAGE, but ensures the event and helps the organiser.

The following quote is from the Chair of the Wingsuit Flying Committee - John Smyth

" Please all pre register NOW on the IPC web site  AND confirm as you indicated to me in your E Mails re "intention to participate" under SC5.     No money is required now  BUT if we do not have confirmation of  pre registration this WC is in jeopardy."

The deadline is 31st July - but it does not have to go to the wire!
