Did you know that the Czech Republic has a strong delegation at the World Challenge 2015?
posted: Mar 13th, 2015 The field of 4-way teams for the World Challenge 2015 keeps growing. A total of 69 teams were registered last week, and the list does not include several teams who will attend the event and have not gone through the registration process yet.
The Qatar Tigers were one of the new teams on the AAA Class list. Qatar's national 4-way team missed the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014 after a 7th place with a 23.0 average at the World Challenge 2014.
The Tigers would most likely have made both cuts in Prostejov and are now back in 4-way business with a new team member. It's the... (more)
Did you know that the Indoor Cloud League generated another new NWSL team?
posted: Mar 12th, 2015 It is time for the BEST OF FEBRUARY videos of the Indoor Cloud League, as the first scores and videos for March will be posted very soon.
The six participating tunnel groups in February generated a total of eight highscores for the six categories. The highscore for the A Class sequence (G,J,7) was most fought for, and three teams ended up tied with 23 points each.

Did you know that the tables have turned in 8-way competition?
posted: Mar 11th, 2015 The Sun Path Products NSL News covered the 8-way competition at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2015 yesterday with an introduction of the international visitors in Veloce QRF's 8-way lineup. The same article mentioned that the Golden Knights did not try to defend last year's 8-way title.
This does not mean that the Golden Knights did not compete in Raeford this year. In fact, all current 8-way members attended the competition, except for Andrew Starr, who had a back surgery last week and needs time to recover.
The names of two AAA/Open Class 8-way teams (Raeford Knights, Husky Knights)... (more)
Did you know that Veloce QRF had a colorful lineup at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship?
posted: Mar 10th, 2015 The Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2015 included once again the only 8-way indoor competition in the world. 19 teams participated for a new record attendance, nine in the Open Class and ten in the Intermediate Class.
The Golden Knights, winner of last year's 8-way competition with the gold medal lineup of Prostejov, were split up in several other lineups. The US Army's 8-way team has trouble to put their current lineup together, and the Sun Path Products NSL News will follow up with a report of the Golden Knights 8-way situation.
Paraclete's 8-way lineup was only shortly behind the Golden... (more)
Did you know that Airspeed's 27.8 average is the second highest result in 4-way outdoor history?
posted: Mar 9th, 2015 The week of the Paraclete XP Indoor and Outdoor Championships 2015 is over after a total of 16 rounds in Raeford and DeLand, and Arizona Airspeed will win the USPA Nationals 2015 - if the history of the relationship between the outdoor competition in DeLand and the national championships does not change.
The winner of the Shamrock Showdown/Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship has always won the gold medals at the USPA Nationals since the event was launched in 2002. Arizona Airspeed had a slow start at the indoor competition, which might have been caused by the team's travel adventure from the west... (more)
Did you know that former Airspeed member Neal Houston visited the place of the original event?
posted: Mar 8th, 2015 The Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2015 came to a great end after a false start.
Two days of bad weather had kept the teams on the ground on Friday and Saturday. Sunday was a completely different story when clear skies and perfect conditions welcomed the teams, who were boarding the Twin Otter at 7:30 AM.
Six rounds were completed at 1 PM, and there would have been enough time to add the four missing rounds. However, the travel schedule of the visiting teams was based on the posted event schedule, which included the award ceremony before 3 PM. It was still a happy ending for all teams,... (more)
