Did you know that four Polish teams battled first time on the same AA leaderboard?
posted: Aug 16th, 2019 It's been a few years since national teams from Poland competed at FAI outdoor world meets or world cups. No Mercy represented Poland in 4-way Women at the FAI World Meet 2016 at Skydive Chicago, and a year later at the FAI World Cup 2017 in Saarlouis, together with 4-way Open Class team Flyspot Sky4four in 4-way Open. However, Polish teams have been consistent visitors at the major indoor events since the Flyspot wind tunnels opened their doors in the European country east of Germany. Flyspot Sky4four competed in the 4-way Open Class at the FAI Indoor World Cup 2018 in Bahrain, and they... (more)
Did you know that the USPA 2004 leaderboards offer more 4-way history insights?
posted: Aug 15th, 2019 The NSL News update on July 1st covered the July meet of the Texas Skydiving League, the San Marcos Showdown. The story included an interesting look back in time, as former Elsinore GT members re-connected on the same meet weekend in a special way. EGT alumni Thomas Hughes and Scott Latinis were working together at Skydive Spaceland Sam Marcos on the TSL weekend, where Thomas Hughes has recently been managing the skydiving operation. The same story was showing a copy of an Omniskore leaderboard of the Advanced Class competition at the USPA Nationals 2004, where three Elsinore teams swept the... (more)
Did you know that NFTO had a new interesting travel story to tell?
posted: Aug 14th, 2019 It was a coincidence that a new NSL Live Talk with the British national team in 4-way Women, NFTO, followed immediately after yesterday's NSL News update, which covered the British 4-way delegation for the FAI Outdoor World Cup 2019. The NSL News reported earlier that Roy Janssen has begun coaching NFTO, after the team's previous work with Gary Smith. The new NSL Live Talk was scheduled for yesterday, which happened to be the same time when the NSL News introduced the British 4-way delegation. Angel Fernandez, Communications Manager for the British Parachute Association (BPA), had provided... (more)
Did you know that the British delegation has 4-way options for the FAI World Cup 2019?
posted: Aug 13th, 2019 The UK Nationals are around the corner at the end of the month. The major outdoor event for the British teams will then be followed by the FAI Outdoor World Cup in October, where the British Parachute Association (BPA) will be present with a large delegation. The British delegation for FAI world meets or world cups consists of the teams who qualified at the national championships of the previous year. The upcoming event includes the qualification for the FAI Outdoor World Meet in Tanay 2020, while the placements at the UK Nationals 2018 determined the teams in the British delegation for the...

Did you know that a few of Jan Klapka's dreams have come true?
posted: Aug 13th, 2019 "I have a dream," said Jan Klapka one day, and he began working on it. He was dreaming of world class 4-way competition in the Czech Republic, a country that was hardly recognized at all in Formation Skydiving competition. He started off in 2005 by joining the European counterpart of the National Skydiving League, the European Skydiving League, which followed the original NSL example. NSL and ESL events have been coordinated and synchronized ever since. There was no indoor competition at that time, and Jan Klapka was just as much a passionate outdoor competitor with his Bad Boys 4-way team.... (more)
Did you know that ISR FireFlash has extended the break from outdoor training and competition?
posted: Aug 11th, 2019 It has not happened very often in the history of the Tomscat Trophy that Sven Ibens and Wesley Claessens would not compete at the event. Their former team Thunder ISR, the Belgian/Dutch combination (Paul Hofstee/Jacco van Eerden), won the Tomscat Trophy consecutively between 2011 and 2015. The Tomscat Trophy 2015 was the last time at this event for one of the best amateur teams in the history of the sport. Thunder ISR trained and competed for one more year and concluded the team career at the ISR Grand Prix 2016 in November the same year before Sven Ibens and Wesley Claessens joined forces with...
