Arizona Arsenal has been a competitive 4-way Verical Formation Skydiving Team since the first test USPA Nationals in 2006 when we won the gold medal by 1 point! At this time VFS was called VRW, Vertical Relative Work. Since then Arsenal has maintained its status as a top tier medalling competitor winning gold and silver medals each year at both the National and World levels.
The 5 original team members were Amy Chmelecki, Sara Curtis, Steve Curtis, Ty Losey and Jason Peters. In early 2011 Brandon Atwood replaced Jason Peters. We'd like to give a shoutout to Jason for being a key part of Arsenal for 5 years and we wish him luck on his new endeavers. We also welcome Brandon who is a badass addition to our team.
This year, 2013, Amy Chmelecki has decided to join the Red Bull Air Force and take a different role in Arsenal as the team alternate. Nik Daniel has moved up from the alternate slot to take her place on the inside.
Our team competes in one of the most challenging freefall disciplines out there and we also train individuals, military groups, and work on special tv and commerical stunt projects.
