Did you know that Airspeed's lineup rotation has been increasing the pace in the past years?
posted: Jun 3rd, 2016 It has been quite a turbulent time period for Arizona Airspeed after the FAI World Meet in Prostejov 2014, and the Sun Path Products NSL News took once again a closer look at the changes of the lineups over the years. It was at the time of Airspeed's 20-year anniversary when the last lineup update was posted, and Airspeed was the reigning 4-way world champion by then. Thomas Hughes and Mark Kirkby had put together the next lineup after winning the gold medals at the FAI Mondial Dubai 2012, with Chris Farina and Thiago Gomes as their new team mates. The previous lineup (2011 - 2012) had spent... (more)

Did you know that the good M4trix news confirmed the bad M8trix news from the Netherlands?
posted: Jun 2nd, 2016 The recent update from the Netherlands on May 21st was good news, as it confirmed that the European country will have a well prepared 4-way Open Class national team at the Mondial 2016. However, bad news was confirmed at the same time. The Dutch national 8-way team M8trix has disbanded, at least temporarily, and the Netherlands will not be represented in this event at Skydive Chicago in September. M8trix was formed in 2011 and has a perfect progression record throughout the six 8-way competitions that the team attended. The 13.9 average at the FAI World Cup 2015 was the last and the highest...

Did you know that iFLY Houston is the first Indoor Cloud League team on both 12- and 14-foot leaderboards?
posted: Jun 1st, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News reported earlier this week that the recent extension of the Indoor Cloud League dive pool separated the 12- and 14-foot teams: "None of the three currently posted teams who are flying in 14-foot chambers has yet posted scores and videos for the 12-foot sequences, as well." It took only a few days until this situation changed. iFLY Houston became the first ICL team with complete sets of six scores and videos on both leaderboards. The iFLY Houston team used the second half of the month to take care of the three additional sequences (AAA - AA - A) for the 12-foot... (more)

Did you know that father Jan and son Jakub Klapka competed together for the first time last weekend?
posted: May 31st, 2016 Yesterday's update from the Hurricane Factory in Prague, Czech Republic, mentioned that the start of the outdoor season separates the 4-way juniors from the 4-way seniors, who have the additional privileges of exits, sub-terminal moves and parachute rides when they jump from planes in 4-way training and competition. However, it is a challenging transition, as an earlier TURNING POINTS column in the Blue Skies Mag explained. It was time for this transition for the Czech 4-way teams last weekend, as the first 4-way outdoor competition of the year took place in Most. The weather did not cooperate... (more)

Did you know that the start of the outdoor season separates 4-way juniors and seniors?
posted: May 30th, 2016 The 4-way teams and competitors in the Czech Republic posted the May set of six Indoor Cloud League sequences before getting ready for the first outdoor competition of the 2016 season. The Hurricane Factory in Prague has a 14-foot flying chamber, and ICL organizer Jan Klapka decided to join the other ICL teams on the 14-foot leaderboard for the AAA/AA/A Class sequences. The recent extension of the Indoor Cloud League dive pool has separated the 12- and 14-foot teams so far. None of the three currently posted teams who are flying in 14-foot chambers has yet posted scores and videos for the 12-foot... (more)

Did you know that Satori XL has a wealth of competition experience?
posted: May 30th, 2016 The poll results for the expected bronze medal battle in the 4-way Open Class Formation Skydiving competition at the Mondial 2016 have not changed much since the last update on May 25th, even though the Qatar Tigers have taken away a percentage point from the leader in the polls, the French national team in 4-way Open, FLY-IN France. It is an interesting aspect of this preview series that the poll results have reflected exactly the final standings at the World Challenge 2016. However, the distances between the five contenders in the poll are significantly wider than the results after the 10-round... (more)
