Did You Know...

... that Airbus and Remscheid had to accept a slow start into the 2015 competition season?

Airbus and Remscheid last weekend in DeLand
posted Apr 14th, 2015 - Two tired German teams were confronted with a challenging competition draw last weekend at the April meet of the Florida Skydiving League in DeLand.

The two lineups of Airbus and Remscheid consist of some of the most experienced 4-way and 8-way competitors in Germany. Airbus is the reigning German 4-way champion who won last year's national championships with the same lineup and a 19.2 average.

Three of Remscheid's current members (Uli Sehrbrock, Steffen Schiedeck, Kai Wolf) competed with Mike Vetter at last year's national championships, where they were tied in 2nd place behind Airbus before they missed the last round and ended up in 6th place with a zero for Round 5.

Airbus made a new 2-year plan with the same lineup, while Remscheid had a personnel change after the 5th Dubai International Parachuting Championship. Thomas "Spieli" Spielvogel, Germany's longest standing 4-way and 8-way competitor, was in Remscheid's lineup in Dubai, where only current member Kai Wolf was missing.

Airbus and Remscheid both completed their first outdoor training camps of the year with the FSL competition last Saturday. It was an intense training camp with coach Solly "Schleifer" Williams and a competition on a hot spring day, with additional training jumps added to the meet agenda on the last day in Florida.

However, both teams have a starting point for the competition season in Germany, which includes the national championships as the qualification event for the World Meet 2016 in the USA.

Airbus and Remscheid have scheduled their 4-way training camps together for a good reason. They are also joining efforts in 8-way, as the Sun Path NSL News reported on 26 December 2014 and on 11 February 2015.

The main focus of both teams was on 4-way this time, and Airbus will keep it that way, at least for the 2015 season. The new Airbus München 8-way lineup completed only four 8-way jumps at the end of their training days.

The block-heavy 6-round competition draw last weekend did not allow Airbus to get back to the 20-average level of last year's meets, and Remscheid suffered the same slow start into the 2015 season. However, both teams will be aiming at the two top spots on the German leaderboard at the beginning of September, and the Airbus 8-way team plans to win, as well.
