Did you know that Aerokart Ak'demie 2 and Air Devils lifted AA Class competition to a new performance level?
posted: Oct 22nd, 2017 The AAA Class sequence for Round 10 (K,E,10,11) at the FAI Indoor World Meet 2017 did not allow any team to make a significant move on the 4-way Open Class leaderboard. Only the teams that were close enough to each other before Round 10 still had an opportunity to change things in the last round, and there were a few occasions. All four winners in the Formation Skydiving events (NMP PCH HayaBusa in 4-way Open, French Weembi Girls in 4-way Women, Aerokart Ak'demie in 4-way Junior, France in 4-way VFS) had secured their gold medal positions before the last round and just had to carry their leads...

Did you know that the French Weembi Girls are once again looking at the 4-way Open Class leaderboard in Montreal?
posted: Oct 21st, 2017 The second half of the FAI Indoor World Meet 2017 is in full swing on Saturday, and the 4-way Open Class battle between NMP PCH HayaBusa and the Weembi High Rollers is as exciting as it was promising after the first five rounds. Weembi was standing with the back to the wall this morning and had nothing else in mind than moving forward, which turned out to be very successful in Round 6. The stage was set for today's four rounds, and the pressure was on the Belgian indoor and outdoor world champions. However, they are on the top of the world for a reason and had the right answer after the 2-point... (more)
Did you know that Saturday will be an uphill battle for the Weembi High Rollers?
posted: Oct 20th, 2017 The FAI Indoor World Meet 2017 lived up to all expectations on the first meet day. Weembi High Rollers challenged NMP PCH HayaBusa to the limits, as it was meant to be. The meet story is similar compared to the World Challenge 2017 so far, where Weembi took the first lead over the Belgian indoor and outdoor world champions. HayaBusa then struck back by three points in Round 4 in Bedford. This time, it was Round 5 when the Belgians turned the 1-point deficit after Round 3 into a 5-point lead at the end of the day. Weembi had claimed or tied the highscores for all four rounds before and were... (more)
Did you know that the poll results for the FAI Indoor World Cup offer no surprises?
posted: Oct 19th, 2017 It's time for the indoor showdown in Montreal, where Round 1 is scheduled for Friday morning at 8:00 AM. The results of the polls don't offer any big surprises, even though NMP PCH HayaBusa is apparently expected to win more clearly than the previous duels with the Weembi High Rollers turned out. This will probably even surprise the Belgians who had to switch back and forth between indoor and outdoor training, while the High Rollers focused exclusively on this indoor showdown with HayaBusa. Arizona Airspeed is not expected to play any role in this duel, which is also not a big surprise. Both... (more)
Did you know that only two teams scored higher than 14.0 since 2002?
posted: Oct 18th, 2017 The value of the 14.0 winning average that Vega XP posted at the USPA Nationals 2017 becomes more obvious after taking a closer look at the results in this category since it was introduced at USPA Nationals. Only two Intermediate Class teams have ever posted higher 10-round averages, Formula 4 (14.1) in 2002 and the Impulse team of the Air Force Academy (14.6) in 2010. DeLand Tunnel Rage finished the 6-round competition with a 15.3 average in 2000. However, USPA applied a different dive pool at that time, which was identical with the current A Class of the National Skydiving League. The easier... (more)
Did you know that Vega XP won the USPA Intermediate Class gold medals with a consistent and clean performance?
posted: Oct 17th, 2017 The Intermediate Class competition at the USPA Nationals 2017 was dominated by the winner, Vega XP from North Carolina, with a 13-point distance to the team in 2nd place, the Cali4nia Raptors/Meta4 from Northern California. However, there surely was competition for all medal positions, as the highscores for each round are showing. Vega XP simply had the most consistent performance throughout all ten rounds, which eventually created the 14.0 average and secured the USPA gold medals. On top of the consistency, Vega XP was also the cleanest team in the Top 10, with only two point deductions. The... (more)
