The #Windtunnel Handifly Solo Speed Race will be included as a demo event in the 9th Open Championshipsh of the Czech Republic in indoor skydiving, shortly Czech Open. This event is planned for 13 & 14 January 2023 in Prague.

If you are interested in the event, please see:


In case you would like to register for the competition, please do so here:
https://hurricanefactory.com/prague/en/czech-open-2023/.

Afterwards, please download the Declaration and consent form. Fill it in, sign it and send it to sportflight.praha@hurricanefactory.com before 5th December.

Also, in case you have not participated in #handiflyRACE 2022 in France, or if your physical condition has changed or you use new specific equipment to facilitate flight (prosthetics, orthotics, others) since that competition, you need to send us to sportflight.praha@hurricanefactory.com video images illustrating your deficiencies on the ground and showing them in a flight situation on a race simulation (with their specific equipment) at the same time in order to allow the board to decide on your coefficient.

An early procedure for classification will be carried out by the same classification board as the one used during the #handiflyRACE 2022. This board will deliberate on all applications received in order to assign the coefficients of compensation that will be applied during the #handiflyRACE 2023.

The coefficients previously assigned could be modified by the board if, after a new medical analysis and observation of the judged flights of the #handiflyRACE 2022, the board considers that adjustments are necessary. The work carried out during the WH seminar of 27 & 28 September, 2022, about the use of the indicative table (Annex 2) may in particular lead to a re-examination of certain specific situations.

Assigned coefficients will be communicated by December 19, 2022.
There will be no review procedure about the compensation coefficient assigned as candidates will retain the freedom to withdraw their registration until the December 31, 2022.
