Did you know that the Golden Knights finished the 2014 season on the world's top level in 4-way Women?
posted: Nov 11th, 2014 The duel between France and the USA for gold medals in 4-way Women has been covered by the Sun Path Products NSL News ever since the current Golden Knights lineup came together for the 2011 season.
There has been a lot of drama in those battles for the top spot, and the most famous one was probably at the World Cup 2013 when the Deep Blue Defenders and the Golden Knights were still tied after a jump-off round and had to go through the rules book to break the tie.
The latest battle took place at the FAI... (more)
Did you know that Formation Skydiving competition has a new world order?
posted: Nov 10th, 2014 The Formation Skydiving competition world has a new order. That's how the previous Turning Points column began. However, the main topic was not the athletic part of this year's World Championships. That's coming now, and then I will shut up with the world meet thoughts fora little while.
The preview of the world meet in Prostejov in the August edition of Blue Skies Mag was headlined "4-Way History in Jeopardy." Well, that's actually an oxymoron. History can never be in jeopardy, as it already happened and has become a fact. However, fact is now the historic world order in 4-way competition has... (more)

posted: Nov 8th, 2014 The Florida Skydiving League teams and competitors came together at iFLY Orlando the same day when the teams in the Czech Republic launched their indoor winter season.
It was a much larger group at the Hurricane Factory last Thursday with 14 teams, while the Florida group generated five lineups at iFLY Orlando. However, the tasks were different ones, as the Czech teams completed a whole 10-round draw when the Florida lineups worked on the November sequences of the Indoor Cloud League.

Did you know that Jan Klapka is under a lot of special pressure?
posted: Nov 7th, 2014 It's time again to wrap up the Indoor Cloud League October competition with the highscores of the month.
The leaderboard is not completely filled with scoring numbers, which happened only once so far in August this year. The four missing scores are the only reason why October was not a record month. The 42 lineups in August had combined for a total of 718 points, and the 38 teams last month had 713 points on the leaderboard. It was close.
The Hurricane Factory in Prague generated four of the highscores (AAA - AA - A - Rookie A) in the... (more)
Did you know that Lithuanian teams will have a strong presence on Polish indoor home air at Flyspot?

There is also no lack of indoor competition these days, and the teams have the opportunity to test at least their mental strength and collect additional competition experiences during the winter break.
The monthly Indoor Cloud League events offer competition on a small but regular basis for any indoor flyers... (more)
