Did you know that Arizona Airspeed agrees with 61% of the audience?
posted: Oct 3rd, 2014 61% of the SKYLEAGUE.COM audience thought that Niklas Hemlin should be in Arizona Airspeed's point slot, while 39% voted for Chris Farina. The members of the current Airspeed lineup agree with the majority of the audience, and Niklas Hemlin will go back to the slot that he had years ago with Fastrax.
Niklas Hemlin was not in the same piece with Airspeed's center outside Thomas Hughes by then. Former DeLand Majik 4-way world champion Doug Park was his front piece partner, and Thomas Hughes was filling the center inside slot for Fastrax when Mark Kirkby left the team.

posted: Oct 1st, 2014 Dubai's team project in Formation Skydiving competition has now completed its 4th year after former Arizona Airspeed members Eliana Rodriguez and Craig Girard moved to the Arabian Emirates in 2011 to get the project on its way.
It was not an easy road for the coaches, even though the available resources allowed them to do many things that are out of reach for other teams. They have to recruit their competitors from a very small group of skydivers, and there are frequent changes in the lineups.
However, the project reached a peak point this year at the FAI... (more)

posted: Sep 29th, 2014 The 8-way competition of the UK Nationals was scheduled for the weekend after the 4-way championship and was concluded after eight rounds.
No surprises were expected, as the national team Microclim8 has dominated the event in the United Kingdom since 2010. However, there were still a few occasions that deserved special attention.
