Did you know that the new Paraclete XP 8-way team has started the 2018/2019 training?
posted: Nov 14th, 2018 SDC Rhythm XP's bad luck began before the best U.S. 4-way team behind Arizona Airspeed competed at the USPA Nationals 2018, while ISR FireFlash still had the complete lineup at the national championships before Glenn Straeluyc's work accident. Former Rhythm member Rob Radez came back and filled Doug Barron's tail slot at Chicagoland Skydiving, where he helped to defend the team's USPA silver medals successfully. However, Rhythm ended up far behind Airspeed, even though the 22.3 average was a new record number for Rob Radez. He had finished his time as Inside Center for Rhythm with a 21.5 average... (more)
Did you know that SDC Rhythm XP and ISR FireFlash have a lot in common?
posted: Nov 13th, 2018 Some of the best 4-way teams in the world cannot compete at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving when another team in the same country is better and won the qualification or selection. Only one team can represent each country at this specific event. These teams still have the opportunity to compete at a high-profile international event as the FAI World Cup, which takes place every other year in turns with the FAI World Meet. In fact, five of the Top 10 teams at the last FAI World Cup in Saarlouis 2017 would not be eligible for the next world meet in Australia. Both FAI events... (more)
Did you know that the Airheads have changed the 4-way standards for Switzerland?
posted: Nov 11th, 2018 The results in 4-way Open at the FAI World Meet 2018 matched the scoring history of the teams quite well, which is always the foundation for the NSL Power Rankings in the run-up to an event. The Top 5 rankings were completely identical before Amnesya placed better (6th) than predicted (7th). Amnesya left Satori XL behind and distanced themselves from the next teams. They finished in fact closer to the 5th place (Echochamber) than Satori XL could get to the Italian team. The rankings behind Amnesya were back in the expected Top 10 order - with one major exception. The NSL Power Rankings were... (more)
Did you know that the Falcons won Qatar's first FAI outdoor medals in Formation Skydiving?
posted: Nov 11th, 2018 The aftermath of the FAI World Meet 2018 in Australia has not included yet a closer look at the delegation of a quickly and well developing country in Formation Skydiving competition. In fact, the Qatar Falcons 8-way team won the first set of FAI medals ever for their country at an FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving with the 3rd place in 8-way Open. The NSL News has covered the road of the Qatar Falcons to the bronze medals in Australia with several updates, supported by coach Gary Smith who has been working with the team for a few years and guided the Falcons to their first international...

Did you know that Paraclete XP8 plan for a serious challenge of the U.S. top spot in 8-way?
posted: Nov 10th, 2018 The recent NSL News update on the current situation of the Golden Knights on 7 November mentioned that there will be serious competition for the U.S. Army team next year. An earlier update after the 8-way competition at the USPA Nationals 2018 had covered the success of the Paraclete XP 8-way team by winning their first USPA gold medals. Golden Knights and XP8 did not get the opportunity to compete directly with each other at Chicagoland Skydiving after the U.S. Army team was called back to North Carolina due to the threatening Hurricane Florence approaching their headquarters. Both 8-way... (more)
Did you know that Echochamber was again in the battle for bronze medals?
posted: Nov 8th, 2018 The competition for the 4-way Open Class bronze medals at the FAI Indoor World Cup 2018 was not only a 1-point duel between the Italian national team Amnesya and IFS-Moscow from Russia. Echochamber from Sweden has been climbing up the international rankings year by year and eventually won a set of bronze medals at the FAI European Indoor Championship 2018 in April. It was naturally a smaller field without any teams from other continents, and even NMP PCH HayaBusa did not attend the meet in Norway. Echochamber fended off the Swiss Airheads and Amnesya to win the bronze medals in April. Russia... (more)
