PD Factory Team Goes Tuffet

Written by BSM Admin

Performance Designs has announced an expansion to the PD Factory Team – adding a branch of accuracy jumpers to a lineup that has previously included 4-way and 8-way FS (PD Blue and PD Gold), as well as quite a few Canopy Piloting competitors.

PD New Beginning


Performance Designs launched the ZERO (a classic accuracy canopy) nine years ago. Over the years PD has gained acceptance into this community and PD is incredibly proud that the ZERO is now the canopy of choice among the majority of accuracy jumpers. As Performance Designs looks to continue their involvement in this community, 2019 will be the first season that they establish a PD sponsored Accuracy Team.

The PD Factory Team originally began as a 4-way FS project made up of primarily PD employees. It later shifted to a high-performance canopy piloting team, whose members have long excelled in various other disciplines. For 2019 Performance Designs is excited to see the PDFT expanding into a new discipline. The PD Factory Team – Accuracy will compete at the 2019 World Cup Series events throughout Europe.

“The PD Factory Team has a long lineage of great skydivers and canopy pilots. We have no doubt that the new members of this Accuracy team will continue to raise the bar for the PDFT. We are as proud to have them wearing PD Blue as they are to be wearing it.” Albert Berchtold, PD Marketing Manager.

The competitors PD has chosen to participate in this project are all well known, and highly respectable members of the accuracy community. They will showcase Performance Designs, the ZERO, and continue to act as ambassadors to our sport while waving the PD flag. The new teammates are Vittorio Guarinelli, Cheryl Stearns, Ehab Mahmoud, Paolo Filippini, Daniele Viel and Stefano Corradini. This team has between them: over 74,000 jumps, 174 podium finishes and over 207 years of combined experience in the sport.
