posted: May 21st, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News reported the results of Denmark's annual DFU Cup on May 10th. Valkyria had qualified as Denmark's national 4-way team in 4-way Women by beating the required 10.0 average. Pangaea won the AAA Class competition with a 13.7 average at the beginning of the team's own preparations for competing at the Mondial 2016. Denmark's national team in 4-way Open, VAF Warriors, had represented the country at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014 in Prostejov, where they finished 11th after battling with eX3mo 4 from Italy for the last slot in the semi-finals.FAI...

Did you know that The FAI/IPC tie-breaker rules have been simplified?
posted: May 19th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News has recently brought important rule changes to the attention of the SKYLEAGUE.COM audience. Part 1 reported that the cuts for semi-finals and finals at FAI/IPC events were removed. Part 2 explained that the special "side-body link-up" definition does not exist any longer. Part 3 was indoor specific and related to contact with wind tunnel walls and floors. The last important rule change in 4-way and 8-way Formation Skydiving competition concludes the story of the tie-breaking rule, which began with the battle for gold medal in 4-way Women between Golden Knights...

Did you know that Scott Latinis helped iFLY Houston to steal the Indoor Cloud League A Class highscore from iFLY Dallas?
posted: May 18th, 2016 The FAI/IPC competition rules for Formation Skydiving competition usually apply from the top level (World Cup - World Meet) down to the grass roots. However, the recent rule change for indoor competition does not have a serious impact on indoor events around the world, which have mostly been run without much concern about contact with walls and floors in the flying chambers. The Indoor Cloud League events will not be effected in any way, while the recent removal of the side-body link-up rule fully applies for all indoor and outdoor training and competition activities. The Indoor Cloud League... (more)

Did you know that indoor competitors may touch walls and floors in competition?
posted: May 17th, 2016 Another recent FAI/IPC rule change for the running competition season is related to indoor events. FAI/IPC became involved with wind tunnel competition almost a decade after the first indoor meets took place, with the World Challenge as the leader of the most popular events. The rules were developed step by step by the hosts, coaches and experienced competitors together, and they were based on the rules for outdoor competition. However, there are obviously major differences that had to be taken care of, and some of the hosts even communicated and coordinated their efforts to find the best... (more)

Did you know that Dallas 350 is waiting for Indoor Cloud League 14-foot challengers?
posted: May 16th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News reported on May 2nd that the recent extension of the Indoor Cloud League dive pool and sequences will allow teams and competitors to test more of their technical skills.

Did you know that there is no special side-body link-up definition any longer?
posted: May 15th, 2016 The recent rule change for the FAI/IPC events that removed the cuts after Round 8 and Round 9 from the format of world meets/world cups was covered by the Sun Path Products NSL News on May 13th. Most other events don't apply any cuts, and the rule change has little impact on the majority of 4-way and 8-way teams. However, the same IPC meeting in Germany generated and finalized other rule changes, and at least one of them has an effect on all teams. The "Definition of Symbols" in the FAI/IPC rule book has always given the side body position special attention in the past: “7.1.5 Any side-body... (more)
