We are the British Female Formation Skydiving team, named NFTO – Not For The Ordinary.
Four ordinary women doing extraordinary things.
NFTO Skydiving team was formed in 2015, and after three years of dedicated training went on to have a successful 2018, achieving our aim of winning Silver at the 2018 Outdoor World Championships and Gold at the 2018 Wind Tunnel World Cup.
With a fresh lineup for 2019, the team has the potential to be very strong, building on 3 years of progression by the NFTO alumni – four highly talented and driven women, with potential to succeed.
The team members are working exceptionally hard to maximise their performance – sacrificing a huge amount of time and money (£8,000 each per annum, and countless days away from work, families, and loved ones).
After winning the medals in 2018 the team is now setting their goal higher.
“The team has talent, dedication and commitment and, if they can realise their full potential, they can achieve great things”
Gary Smith, NFTO coach and two-time skydiving World Champion
The intense training required to excel in skydiving is expensive. Unlike the UK’s traditional rivals of the French and Chinese who are fully funded we need support 0 for us to compete on a level playing field with our French, Chinese and Russian rivals, we certainly need further financial resources to be able to embark on that level of training. A total additional £150,000 would allow us to train full time to achieve our maximum potential.
We are continually pursuing corporate sponsorship, but any support will be hugely appreciated.
