The Formation Skydiving (FS) competition consists of 4 events: 4-way FS, 4-way FS Female, 8-way FS, and 4-way VFS. In all of these events, after exiting the aircraft, while in freefall, teams are required to perform a repeatable sequence of formations, which is randomly drawn from their respective event's dive pools.
