Did you know that Sven Ibens has plenty of time for more 4-way and 8-way fun? posted: Apr 25th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News features a new NSL Profile, and it's not one of the several current or former 4-way and 8-way world champions who is being introduced to the SKYLEAGUE.COM audience "Up Close & Personal".
However, Sven Ibens would probably be a 4-way world champion by now had he continued with Roy Janssen, David and Andy Grauwels and the HayaBusa project. He decided in 2006 to give priority to his job and family and continued as a recreational 4-way competitor.
His career story includes the funniest moment, which happened for him at the World Cup 2012. The same event was also... (more)
Did you know that the Mondial 2016 will be the first world meet for one Hayabusa and one Airspeed member? posted: Apr 24th, 2016 It was not only the 32.0 average at the World Challenge 2016 that moved NMP PCH Hayabusa farther away from the rest of the teams in the 4-way world, even though the 32.0 average in Bedford was the highest indoor average ever in a 16-foot flying chamber for a 10-round meet, as the Sun Path Products NSL News mentioned on April 4th.
It is also a fact that this year's 34-point distance to the team in 2nd place was the biggest victory in the history of the event. No other team has ever been that far ahead of the rest of the field. Hayabusa started far behind (27) Arizona Airspeed in 2006, and the... (more)
Did you know that Aerokart Ak'demie has once again extended the successful junior team project? posted: Apr 23rd, 2016 The leaderboards of the World Challenge 2016 were not only a colorful combination of different gender lineups, as it was the case earlier at the Clash of Champions 2015, which did not have a separate leaderboard in 4-way Women, as well.
Even the AAA Class leaderboard in Bedford included an all-female lineup with the French FLY-IN Girls, despite the additional leaderboard for only 4-way Women. There were no separate gender-limited leaderboards in the other three categories (AA - A - Rookie), where all flyers of all genders and ages also competed together.
The A Class winner, Pro Team Extended,... (more)
Did you know that iFLY Orlando added 52 points to the Indoor Cloud League April account? posted: Apr 22nd, 2016 Bad weather did not allow teams and skydivers in Florida to get in the air last weekend for the first FSL outdoor competition this year, however, the weather was not in the way of the next Indoor Cloud League event at iFLY Orlando last night.
Three lineups of Florida 4-way competitors joined again trying to add points to iFLY Orlando's account for April. The additional 52 points brought the April total to 102, which is still far behind the current leader, iFLY Houston.
Two lineups took on the AAA - AA - A Class sequences and had an internal competition for the spots on the ICL leaderboard.... (more)
Did you know that the Virginia Parachute Council launched its 2016 outdoor season last weekend? posted: Apr 21st, 2016 Scores from iFLY Virginia Beach have been on the Indoor Cloud League leaderboard since the beginning of the 2016 season.
It is one 4-way team that has been collecting ICL points each month this year, Suffolk Sabotage, and the 2016 total of 136 points for the first three months is enough to maintain the 8th place out of ten currently participating ICL teams.
Suffolk Sabotage is not mainly focused on indoor competition. In fact, the team members have been participating in events of the Virginia Parachute Council and attending USPA Nationals for many years before the iFLY Virginia Beach wind... (more)
Did you know that iFLY Houston had Indoor Cloud League support from iFLY Dallas? posted: Apr 19th, 2016 The Indoor Cloud League competition in April began with the first score for the AA Class sequence from Florida, performed by Z-Hills PreciZion. Two additional Rookie Class scores lifted the current iFLY Orlando total for the month of April to 50.
iFLY Houston now followed up with a total of 138 points, which is the highest result for the new Indoor Cloud League team since joining at the beginning of the year.
138 points is also on the high side in the history of the Indoor Cloud League, and the progression is not really such a great surprise. The iFLY Houston team is guided by Spaceland Lite... (more)
