Extreme Canopy Flight (XCF) is Skydive Dubais vision of making skydiving history by setting new limits for human flight. On April 5th, 2014, professional skydiver and test pilot Ernesto Gainza set a new Guinness World Record by landing the world’s smallest parachute — a JVX 35 square foot canopy with a 4.3 wingload! The previous unofficial record for the smallest parachute landed was held by Luigi Cani who jumped a 37 square foot canopy on January 1, 2008. Luigi was the inspiration for this XCF project.
