Did you know that two Vibe team mates had a great battle at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2013?
posted: Feb 13th, 2013 The 4way competition at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2013 was not only interesting because Arizona Airspeed would post the first scores with the new lineup. It was also the opportunity to see SDC Rhythm XP's new Tail Mikhail Markine in action.
It became even more interesting when a pick up team registered at the last minute. Just In Time's lineup included Mikhail Markine's team mate of 2012, Don Burnette.
Both teams and the two former Vibe members then launched a most exciting battle for the 2nd place and... (more)
Did you know that teams from 20 countries are currently registered for the World Challenge 2013?
posted: Feb 12th, 2013 The list of teams for the World Challenge 2013 keeps growing consistently and is now at the point where it was at the end of February last year. The World Challenge 2012 had a record participation of 77 teams, and this number will probably be history again in April 2013. A total of 66 teams is currently registered in the traditional 4way categories.
Bodyflight Bedford's owner Paul Mayer has limited the number of teams to 100, which seems to be very far away. However, who would have thought that over 70 teams would come... (more)

Did you know that the three new French national 4way members competed in Paraclete's 8way event?
posted: Feb 9th, 2013 The large French delegation at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2013, guided by the two 8way world champions of 2010, Martial Ferre and Damien Sorlin, did not have any 4way teams on the leaderboard. All French competitors and their guests competed only in 8way.
There were actually not too many participants who competed in both events. It was a very fast pace, and it was challenging for the few flyers with double duties to be well prepared for both events. Steve Lefkowitz (SDC Rhythm XP - Paraclete XP8), Josh Hall... (more)
Did you know that 13 teams competed at Sportflight's Skydive Arena in Prague this week?
posted: Feb 8th, 2013 The same 13 teams who competed at the January indoor competition of the Czech Republic Skydiving League came back to the Sportflight Arena in Prague this week on Thursday. It was the fourth of the six indoor meets that organizer Jan Klapka scheduled to keep his 4way teams and competitors in shape throughout the winter.
The three AAA Class teams in this event series have settled in their positions and not changed the rankings since the first meet in November 2012. Hvezdy is the only team in the AA Class and matched the 12.1 average of January exactly this week.
The situation in the A Class... (more)
Did you know that Arizona Airspeed of 2013 competed with Airspeed 2011 last weekend?
posted: Feb 7th, 2013 It is about time for the first judging videos of Arizona Airspeed's performance with the new lineup at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2013.
The videos are showing the Airspeed engine running very smoothly after very little training with the new lineup before the competition. Chris Farina looks as if he has been flying the Point slot forever, and the distance to the other US teams is the same as it has been in the past years.
It is obvious that the three reigning 4way world champions with the new Point have no... (more)
