Did you know that three Czech teams completed three 10-round meets in April?
posted: Apr 29th, 2016 The Czech 4-way teams have a busier meet schedule than teams in most other countries. However, April was an extremely busy month where most of the Czech teams attended two meets and participated in the Indoor Cloud League activities on top of that.
Three teams even competed at three 10-round events this month and added several scores to the ICL April account of the Hurricane Factory. Bad Boys, HF Junior Cubs and HF Junior Flies started the extraordinary meet month at the World Challenge 2016 in Bedford.
Then they attended the last indoor winter meet of Sportflight's European Tunnel League... (more)

Combined together by the event judges in order to represent a spread of ability, the girls adopted... (more)
Did you know that the AA Class battle for medals at the World Challenge was the tightest one?
posted: Apr 26th, 2016 The tightest battle for the medal positions at the World Challenge 2016 took place in the AA Class, and once again, lineups of all genders and ages were involved in it.
The four teams in serious contention for the three top spots were separated by 13 points, which was significantly closer compared to the other four categories (AAA Open - AAA Women - A - Rookie). The same four AA Class teams also represented four of the 13 different nations on the AA Class leaderboard.
The winner, Equinox from Lithuania, has a mixed-gender lineup and claimed or tied seven highscores in the 10-round meet. The... (more)
Did you know that Sven Ibens has plenty of time for more 4-way and 8-way fun?
posted: Apr 25th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News features a new NSL Profile, and it's not one of the several current or former 4-way and 8-way world champions who is being introduced to the SKYLEAGUE.COM audience "Up Close & Personal".
However, Sven Ibens would probably be a 4-way world champion by now had he continued with Roy Janssen, David and Andy Grauwels and the HayaBusa project. He decided in 2006 to give priority to his job and family and continued as a recreational 4-way competitor.
His career story includes the funniest moment, which happened for him at the World Cup 2012. The same event was also... (more)
Did you know that the Mondial 2016 will be the first world meet for one Hayabusa and one Airspeed member?
posted: Apr 24th, 2016 It was not only the 32.0 average at the World Challenge 2016 that moved NMP PCH Hayabusa farther away from the rest of the teams in the 4-way world, even though the 32.0 average in Bedford was the highest indoor average ever in a 16-foot flying chamber for a 10-round meet, as the Sun Path Products NSL News mentioned on April 4th.
It is also a fact that this year's 34-point distance to the team in 2nd place was the biggest victory in the history of the event. No other team has ever been that far ahead of the rest of the field. Hayabusa started far behind (27) Arizona Airspeed in 2006, and the... (more)
Did you know that Aerokart Ak'demie has once again extended the successful junior team project?
posted: Apr 23rd, 2016 The leaderboards of the World Challenge 2016 were not only a colorful combination of different gender lineups, as it was the case earlier at the Clash of Champions 2015, which did not have a separate leaderboard in 4-way Women, as well.
Even the AAA Class leaderboard in Bedford included an all-female lineup with the French FLY-IN Girls, despite the additional leaderboard for only 4-way Women. There were no separate gender-limited leaderboards in the other three categories (AA - A - Rookie), where all flyers of all genders and ages also competed together.
The A Class winner, Pro Team Extended,... (more)
