Sixteen wingsuit pilots from all over the world will descend on China’s Hunan province October 13-16 to compete on Tienman Mountain in Zhangjiajie prefecture. The competition will start Thursday the 13th on the first-ever two-turn slalom course that will test pilot flying proficiency and maneuverability.

The fastest eight pilots will then advance to Saturday’s speed round, conducted on last year’s head-to-head course.
