Arizona Arsenal began as a competitive skydiving team in 2006 with members Steve Curtis, Amy Chmelecki, Jason Peters, Ty Losey, and Sara Curtis. The team pioneered a new competitive discipline known as Vertical Formation Skydiving (VFS). Competitive VFS is true test of skill, speed, and precision flying on every axis, and the team showcased their skills by winning the first ever VFS competition in 2006. 


The lineup rotated over the years with several other high-level skydivers such as Dusty Smith, Travis Mills, Brandon Atwood, Niklas Daniels, Kim Winslow, and Michael Friedman. The team continued to rack up an impressive resume having gone on for many years to win local, national, and world level competitions.  They also organized state, national, and world records, and became involved with stunt work for movies, tv, and special projects. 


The team’s high-level skill, professionalism, and drive made them some of the most highly sought-after coaches in the sport of skydiving. The natural evolution after making a powerful impact on body flight in the civilian world was expanding efforts into U.S. Military parachute training and bringing this knowledge to elite U.S. military skydivers to help them advance the scope of their special skills and training. 


Arsenal set the bar for the VFS discipline and has since remained a dominant influence in the progression of body flight.
