Rustenburg Skydiving - For the thrill of it!
Rustenburg – The long awaited 2017 South African National Skydiving Championships was held at Skydive Rustenburg at the Rustenburg Municipal Airfield.
The competition ran from 27 April to 1 May 2017 and competitors from all nine provinces took to the playground in the sky and competed in 5 separate skydiving disciplines namely; formation skydiving, artistic events, canopy formation, classic accuracy and wingsuit skydiving – all for the title of National Champions in the various categories.
Skydiving is also one of the few sports where men and women compete in the same competition on an equal footing.
The event was open to the public during the competition hours – and left many in awe.
This was the second time that the National Skydiving Championships was held in the North West
Province and both Skydive Rustenburg and the Parachute Association of South Africa were honoured to bring this unique and spectacular sport to the people of Rustenburg. The event was hosted without a single incident.
