North Carolina Takes Up Host’s Mantle for October Events Israel has announced that they won’t be able to hold the 2024 Féderátion Aéronautique Internationale World Championships of Artistic Events, Formation Skydiving, Wingsuiting and Speed Skydiving as planned, reopening the bid to interested host nations. The situation there makes the Israelis understandably put upon to host a large international event, but surprisingly the world had few takers on their slot as host. The US Parachuting Association said that surprisingly, only a single host bid was placed. The winner was announced on the 1st of December, with North Carolina’s Crystal Coast Skydiving hosting the Championships out of their home port of Michael J. Smith Field. The public airport will play host to the world from October 4th through the 12th, 2024. Events will include local skydive operators Skydive Chicago and Skydive Paraclete XP, in addition to Crystal Coast Skydiving.
