The first skydiving event in Seychelles is set to take place in October, with skydivers from across the world invited to participate.
The Innhopp Experience, a two-week event, will be hosted by Fly Seychelles. About 76 participants from 28 countries, including Australia, Angola, Germany, France, South Africa, and Namibia, are expected to take part.
Initiator of the project, Francesco Drosi, said in an interview with Seychelles News Agency that the event would help boost the tourism industry, which was facing difficulties as a result of COVID-19.
"We have already booked 75 rooms in hotels around the country," said Drosi. "This is a very new type of event for Seychelles. The participants will land in some of the most beautiful parts of the country.”
Fifteen Seychellois, who have been invited by Fly Seychelles to jump free, will be trained prior to the event by three top instructors.
