posted: Feb 20th, 2015 It was simply brutal.
Florida's Indoor Cloud League group had scheduled the next training and competition event for Thursday, February 19th at iFLY Orlando.

iFLY Orlando is operating the first vertical skydiving wind tunnel and was built in 1998.
The tunnel air was not re-circulating in the early designs of wind tunnels, and the outside... (more)

Did you know that the Golden Knights scored high for iFLY Orlando's Indoor Cloud League group?
posted: Feb 6th, 2015 The mention of the French Girls in a Sun Path Products NSL News update usually triggers another team name, the Golden Knights, either in the same story or shortly afterwards, and vice versa. This time, the French update was first, and it took exactly one day until the Golden Knights story follows. In fact, the update from the US Army headquarters has been in the works while the French Girls are training in Dubai.
The Golden Knights are actually away from the headquarters, in a training camp in Florida, and the Sun Path Products NSL News was planning a field trip to the training site, the MacDill... (more)

Did you know that iFLY Seattle's recent Indoor Cloud League event produced a new NWSL team for the 2015 season?
posted: Jan 31st, 2015 It took only a day after Florida's Indoor Cloud League update until iFLY Seattle's answer came from the Northwest Skydiving League group.
Deb Correia reported that Team Seattle held a skills camp one week prior to the Indoor Cloud League event to work on individual skills and focus on some of the random formations and blocks that would be seen in the duel. Six participants signed up and learned a lot.
She said that many of the Indoor Cloud League competitors have only been flying at those events: "They don't get much time to work on their own skills in a lower-stress environment. This is... (more)
