After a very successful 2014 season which saw the victory of British pilot Nigel Lamb, the Red Bull Air Race Championship is coming back in 2015 for eight races.
The FAI is excited with the news, all the more so since the Federation is very much involved in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Indeed, the FAI signed an agreement with Red Bull Air Race World Championship last year including the provision of FAI medals especially designed for the Red Bull Air Race, the inclusion of all races in the FAI Events Calendar, and the official approval by the FAI of the race Rules & Regulations. Furthermore, the FAI provides a delegate who attends all events to supervise safety aspects.

Final Day of the World Cup of Indoor Skydiving
Today was the third and final day of the 1st World Cup of Indoor Skydiving. The final results, together with a judged video for each flight, are available at the relevant link above. The final rounds were conducted with a huge number of spectators in attendance and the atmosphere was electric, although there was not much risk of a change in the final ranking in FS. Flying kicked off with FS Open followed by FS Female. The two rounds were rapidly completed and the judges kept up pretty well with the scoring. FS Open was won by the Bad Boys from the Czech Republic and Female FS was won by Aerokart Deep Blue from France. After a break when the FAI Officials were given another opportunity to fly, the Artistic Events took off. Judging AE is slower than FS so while waiting for the scores to come out, the iFly staff gave a brilliant demonstration of what can be done in a tunnel. The final round brought some change to the Freestyle scores with Olga Bakulina from Russia slipping from second place to third, replaced by Collective Freestyle (Michael Sylva Jr).
