Oceanside FLO Earns Slots on U.S. Parachute Team
Perris CA— Local skydiving team Oceanside FLO is once again the national champions of freefly skydiving. For the fourth year in a row, the team won gold at the U.S. Parachute Association National Skydiving Championships, taking place this week at Skydive Perris in California. Their win earns them slots on the prestigious U.S. Parachute Team that will compete at the 2018 World Championships in Australia.
In artistic freeflying, three-person teams, including two performers and a camera flyer, perform an aerial acrobatic routine, freefalling together in every imaginable orientation, carefully choreographed for speed and excitement.
FLO members are Mike Bohn, 36; Leland Procell, 27; and Chad Ross, 33. The team represented the United States at the World Cup last month at Skydive Chicago, where they won the silver medal.
The 2017 USPA National Skydiving Championships is drawing nearly 500 of the country’s top skydivers to Perris for the biggest and most thrilling skydiving competition in the country. The event continues through September 30 and is free and open to the public.
