posted: Feb 8th, 2015 NMP-PCH Hayabusa member Dennis Praet and three Gavroche members (Clement Martin Saint Leon, Emmanuel Sarrazin, Julien Olek) were back in a flying chamber just two weeks after the completion of the Wind Games 2015.
This time, it was Aerokart in Paris, France, who invited 4-way teams to their annual competition, the Aerokart Challenge, and a total of 16 teams attended the event.
Neither Hayabusa nor Gavroche competed with their complete lineup. In fact, Dennis Praet was the only Hayabusa member of the current lineup... (more)
Did you know that the ChatterChicks will have one more word in the AA Class at the World Challenge 2014?
posted: Feb 4th, 2015 One of the teams that signed up early for the World Challenge 2015 are the ChatterChicks from Great Britain. This year's 10-year anniversary event will be the 3rd time for the ChatterChicks to compete in Bedford, and the all-female team will keep the progression through the categories in perfect order.
Sarah Ashworth, Tanya Burton, Robynne Haynes and Vikki Poulton started with an 11.3 average in the Rookie Class at the World Challenge 2013. The same lineup then posted a 17.4 average in the A Class a year later. They... (more)

posted: Feb 2nd, 2015 The 5th Dubai International Parachuting Championship 2014 and the Wind Games 2015 did not really have that much in common. The event in Dubai is an outdoor competition for the teams who could still not get enough of 4-way and other events at the end of the season, while the Wind Games indoor meet follows soon and very early in the new year.
Both events are neither drawing the best teams in the world nor many national teams to the same location... (more)

Gary Smith, 4-way world champion of 2004 (DeLand Majik) and 2006 (DeLand Fire), was not only coaching Hayabusa in Empuriabrava. He also competed once again with Voodoo at the same time. He said that the coaching job was more important, as Voodoo will most likely have... (more)

posted: Jan 29th, 2015 The combined leaderboard of both AAA Class events (4-way Open, 4-way Women) at the Wind Games 2015 shows the three all-female teams close to each other right in the middle rankings of all 4-way teams.
The British team NFTO consisted of three Bodyflight Isis members of the 2014 season (Anna Hicks, Ane Brentford, Laura James), and 4-way Women world champion of 2003, 2006 and 2008, Claire Scott, completed the lineup. Bodyflight Isis is now probably making plans again for taking away the 4-way Women top position in the... (more)
