The Misty Blues are the world’s first all woman skydiving team. They are setting records and empowering women all over the world. Their award winning performances have been seen from Indonesia to Canada to Mexico and even as far as Japan. We are very excited to be bringing this performance to the first air show in Paulding County. It will be a spectacular event that you won’t want to miss.
These remarkable woman have been performing for over 25 years. In total they have averaged over 40,000jumps in their career and hold 35 world records. The Misty Blue team consists of 8 women from all over the United States. Interesting fact, there are over 35,000 active skydivers in the world and only a mere 15% are women. This is ground setting for a team of all women to not only be skydiving performers, but also an award winning team.
Meet these amazing women:
One of the joys of performing all over the world for Cindy Irish is showing young children, especially girls, how much is within their reach. For all of the women, skydiving is a hobby. They have a variety of backgrounds and careers in which they have achieved equally successful status. Cindy says, I want young children and even women to know
“You can do anything that you want to do!”
Allison Harper, a professor at the University of Rhode Island and a team member of Misty Blue, says “It’s a very freeing feeling. It feels like floating.” She loves performing and the amazing feeling she gets when she sees the crowd’s reaction. One of her most memorable moments was when a little girl asked her “Can boys skydive too?”
