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)
Did you know that the NSL Championship 2017 will generate the best all-round 4-way team?
posted: Oct 16th, 2017 Teams and competitors of the Florida Skydiving League and other Indoor Cloud League participants came together at iFLY Tampa last week to complete their fifth 10-round meet of the World Tunnel League this year. Differently compared to the 4-way teams in the Czech Republic, Florida and Northern California continue with the monthly indoor competition throughout the outdoor season, as well. Florida has been running the WTL meets every other month, while Northern California offers 6-round meets each month. The competition draw is synchronized between the participating teams, and the draw is... (more)
Did you know that each 4-way Junior team could be in medal contention in Montreal?
posted: Oct 15th, 2017 Two 4-way Junior teams from the Czech Republic participated in the first FAI indoor world meet at the Hurricane Factory in Prague two years ago, the HF Junior Cubs and the HF Junior Flies. They finished in the last two places on the AAA Class leaderboard. FAI/IPC then created the 4-way Junior category with its separate leaderboard for the FAI Indoor World Cup 2016 at the Flyspot in Poland. The AA Class dive pool and the respective sequences (4 or 5 points per page) were assigned to the new category, while the number of rounds was limited to eight. The FAI Indoor World Cup 2016 brought a total... (more)
Did you know that the defending champion in 4-way Women will not compete in Montreal?
posted: Oct 14th, 2017 The NSL News continues with previews of the FAI Indoor World Meet 2017. This time, the power rankings present the field of teams in 4-way Women. The number of participating teams is identical with the 2015 event at the Hurricane Factory in Prague, even though four countries (Belgium, Finland, Lithuania, Slovenia) are not back with teams in this category in Montreal. Teams from four other countries replace the four missing nations. Canada did not send the national team in 4-way Women, Parachute Montreal Fuzion, to Europe in 2015, and the home team at SkyVenture Montreal is now one of the top... (more)
Did you know that the FAI Indoor World Meet 2017 features a very strong field in 4-way Open?
posted: Oct 13th, 2017 The International Parachuting Commission (IPC) of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI - World Air Sports Federation) decided years ago to become involved with indoor competition and hosted the first world championship event in 2015 at the Hurricane Factory in Prague, Czech Republic. NMP PCH HayaBusa became the first 4-way Open Class indoor world champions and have maintained the top spot ever since, together with the top spot in outdoor competition that they took in Prostejov 2014. The 2-year cycle for FAI indoor events is identical with outdoor competition, while it is scheduled... (more)
