Airfource will compete for Germany at the upcoming FAI Indoor World Meet, even though the new team did not compete at last year's national indoor championships, which was the official qualification event.
The 2018 indoor winner, Airbus FSZ Saar, is not interested much in indoor training and competition and was even training in DeLand, while this year's national indoor championships took place at the Jochen Schweizer Arena in Munich.
AtomiX would have been next in the qualification order after finishing in 2nd place last year. However, AtomiX have the same preferences as Airbus and focus the team priorities exclusively on outdoor competition. Winter training takes place at Oceanside in California, summer training at the new home DZ in Hildesheim. AtomiX still competed at the national indoor championships, even though they have also forwarded the slot as the national indoor team in 4-way Open to Airfource.

In fact, the 24.3 AtomiX average in Munich is the highest German indoor result behind Airfource and improved last year's Airbus winning total of 240 by three points. AtomiX had a 22.9 in the records before this weekend's 24.3 in Munich. The Airfource 27.2 average is still significantly better and confirms the qualification status that the German federation granted after the team's impressive performance at the Belgian Indoor Nationals last December.
The most recent Airfource scores indicate that the German national indoor team in 4-way Open could be in contention for the positions not far behind the medal rankings, even though there will be very strong teams like Qatar Tigers, Echochamber, IFS-Moscow trying to get close to the Top 3 (NMP PCH HayaBusa, Weembi High Rollers, Arizona Airspeed).
AtomiX and Airbus will continue to focus on outdoor training and competition where AtomiX is the German top contender this year. Airfource has not decided yet if they will try to become the German 4-way champions in both events.Skynamite FSZ Daar and Piteraq at the German Indoor Nationals 2019
Skynamite has a new lineup with new member Sylvia Schlaphof. Yasmin Schütte, Sandra Dederichs and Janine Tillenburg are back from the 2018 lineup.
It was not easy for Skynamite to defend the 4-way Women indoor title successfully as the first step. In fact, the competition for the 3rd place was a dramatic 4-point battle, as the newly formed Piteraq lineup was seriously threatening the defending champions.
Two Chicas members (Susa Serra, Sylvia Maier) teamed up with Linda Koelb of the German national 8-way team Airbus and former military competitor Evangelina Warich.
Skynamite will be back for outdoor competition after the indoor world meet and try to defend the German 4-way Women title, as well. The German Outdoor Nationals 2019 are the qualification event for the next FAI world meet in Tanay 2020.
