Did you know that former Airspeed member Neal Houston visited the place of the original event?
posted: Mar 8th, 2015 The Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2015 came to a great end after a false start.
Two days of bad weather had kept the teams on the ground on Friday and Saturday. Sunday was a completely different story when clear skies and perfect conditions welcomed the teams, who were boarding the Twin Otter at 7:30 AM.
Six rounds were completed at 1 PM, and there would have been enough time to add the four missing rounds. However, the travel schedule of the visiting teams was based on the posted event schedule, which included... (more)
Did you know that Evolution wins with new team record averages in Dubai?
posted: Dec 4th, 2014 The 5th Dubai International Parachuting Championship will be concluded on Thursday in all Formation Skydiving events. In fact, the eight rounds in 4-way VFS were completed on Wednesday, and Evolution won and takes home the first $15,000 of cash.
There was obviously not much competition in 4-way VFS, however, Evolution still did well without any performance pressure. The 19.1 average in Dubai is the new team record and more than a point higher compared to this year's world meet where the Evolution VFS lineup won the... (more)
Did you know that Fly Definition moved up a level in VFS 4-way?
posted: Nov 16th, 2014 The VFS 4-way part of the first FAI Indoor World Cup was almost as small as the competition in 4-way Women, where only Aerokart Deep Blue and HF Chicks had signed up for the competition. Three teams competed in the newest 4-way Formation Skydiving category at iFLY Austin, and the situation was very similar to 4-way Women.
Both events had one world class team that did not have any serious competition (Aerokart Deep Blue - SDC Standard XP), and the second team in the respective event was far behind. Fly Definition from Poland was the second team in VFS 4-way and was in a slightly better situation... (more)
Did you know that Julien Guiho is the best swooping Formation Skydiving competitor this year?
posted: Nov 13th, 2014 The 5th FAI World Canopy Piloting Championships 2014 were recently held at Skydive City in Zephyrhills, Florida. The Sun Path Products NSL News covers almost exclusively Formation Skydiving competition and events, and the swooping meet does not really fit into the SKYLEAGUE.COM territory.
However, it would not be the first time at all that Canopy Piloting and Formation Skydiving competition have something in common, and the connection comes with the athletes. Former 4-way world champions Shannon Pilcher, Ian Bobo and Jonathan Tagle (DeLand Fire - 2006) made the news here and there when they... (more)
Did you know that Lithuanian teams will have a strong presence on Polish indoor home air at Flyspot?
posted: Nov 6th, 2014 Winter time has become indoor time for many teams and competitors when more and more wind tunnels were built around the world. Winter training in Florida, Arizona or Dubai is still very popular, as well, and the combination is ideal.
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)
Did you know that Arizona Arsenal won world meet silver with a team record average?
posted: Sep 13th, 2014 The USPA Nationals 2014 also include VFS 4-way with two categories, Open and Advanced. The number of participating teams is identical with last year's attendance.
SDC Standard XP is back after sitting out last year on home turf at Skydive Chicago. Arizona Arsenal won the gold medals at the USPA Nationals 2013 and then represented the USA at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014 in Prostejov a few weeks ago.
Arsenal finished... (more)
