A skydiving team based at Triangle Skydiving Center in Louisburg are the new National Champions of Intermediate 4-way Formation Skydiving! TSC Cadence took gold Tuesday at the 2018 U.S. Parachute Association National Skydiving Championships at Chicagoland Skydiving Center in Rochelle, Illinois.
In formation skydiving, 4-person teams exit the airplane more than two miles above the ground and race against the clock to form prescribed geometric formations in freefall before opening their parachutes. A videographer jumps with the team to capture the maneuvers for the judges on the ground.
Cadence members are Brandon Kashani, 21, of Raleigh; Joshua Lukes, 41, of Wake Forest; Joss Martin, 36, of Pikeville; ShawnaRae Miliano, 37, of Clayton; and Jeff Turton, 36, of Durham.
