MI Summary

 Good bye 2015 ! Let's welcome 2016 with a review of the best achievements made with you all this last year

What are Mission Impossible events ?

Let's welcome 2016 with nice memories of 2015 ! ENJOY THE MOVIE !

They are invitational FS skydiving events in Europe. They are made for skydivers who like the challenges, intricated 12-18 ways sequential skydives. We look for the most impressive skydives. Our creed is: go for quality, conviviality and challenge yourself ... who dares wins!

MI events are invitational events. We have already almost 60 people who have already got enlisted to our events since 2012. If they have been enlisted, it's because they have the required skills to attend the event. To participate: Good knowlegde about Formations sequential skydiving techniques in 4, 8 and 16 way are required.


If you have never participated, you'll need to be invited. How can you get invited? You will need to be known by a coach who can recommand you for the next missions. Decision to participate will be taken by the main coaches of Mission Impossible events : Martial Ferré (FRA), Thomas Spielvogel (GER), Doug Forthor Dan BC (USA), Lesley Gale (GB), Tom Jenkins (USA), Pete Allum (GB/SP) and Marco Arrigo (ITA).

The origins of Mission impossible events

Everybody knows the famous TV program "Mission impossible". But this happens in the normal life ... In the skydiving world, Mission Impossible was the name of the invitational event that took place a long time ago in Arizona, organized by DanBC and Georges Jicha. Later, this event became the Arizona challenge events in Eloy organized by Skydive AZ with team Airspeed. In 2005, a Belgium skydiver, Johan Van Eeckhout, took the idea of bringing the Arizona challenge in Europe and it did happen in Lille, northern France. Even if the members of Airspeed were present at the event, the name of this european Arizona challenge had to be changed. And it changed back to Mission Impossible ... The Arizona challenge in Europe, alias Mission impossible, continued to be imported in northern France and Belgium until 2007. The Arizona challenge went back in Europe in 2006 in Empuria but that was the last time.

In the meantime, in Perris California, team P3 (World class big way events organizer) was starting to run its own invitational event like the AZ challenge. This event is called Powerplay. This event is organized by the famous world champion DanBC who was organizing the first MI events in the past in AZ in the 90's. The Powerplay has become one major invitational event in the world and the selection to attend it is drastic. Crazy formations are used to be organized by the P3 captains, all world class coaches.

In 2011, Dan BC, my former top contender from team Airspeed (i was in the french 4way team Maubeuge competing hard against him!) did invite me to participate at the Powerplay to see how it looks. And i just fell in love with this kind of event! This is just the perfect mix between challenge and fun, using the 4 way, 8 way and 16 way techniques. Making just 2 formations but looking really intricated, impressive and challenging is just awesome. When you see the pictures of the formations, you might think: "wow ! How did they manage to make it ?!". That's Powerplay ... When i returned in France, one of major goal in life now was to create the replica of the powerplay in Europe. Since i became a P3 captain in 2012, organizing such an invitational event in Europe became necessary to get connected with its US grand brother.

One major problem to start with such events in Europe was to create a team and have the right people to play with. I decided to create a team with international 4 way coaches, we invited 60 people and we started the first event in july 2012 in Saarlouis (FSZ Saar), Germany, one of the most efficient DZ i have ever seen. The event went well and we could make some interesting stuff in the air, really looking like at the Powerplay.

But before starting the event, we had to find a name for the event and Dan didn't allow us to name the event "European powerplay", which is normal, since Powerplay name is copyrighted. I was searching hardly for a name, having coffe with my fellow Johan Van Eeckhout, the former MI organizer in Lille in 2005-2007, when he proposed me to give the event the "Mission Impossible" that he did use in the past ... Ride on! Mission impossible was back !
