The Donaupark in the centre of Vienna is to be transformed into an extreme sports venue from 25-27 Aug for the world parachuting championship canopy piloting 2006. Canopy piloting is known as the Formula One of skydiving, involving high speeds and accuracy over distance. Canopy pilots from all over the world will be swooping over the specially made artificial lake near the Danube Tower in the Papstwiese at the centre of the park, while championship fringe events include helicopter airs shows and stunt flying. This is the first time an air-show of this size has taken place in Vienna.
