Head and shoulders above the rest – Nicole Schmidt wins the overall world cup 2015

U-Turn acro team pilot Nicole Schmidt wins the world cup tour 2015. The U-Turn pilot is not only on top of the winner’s podium at the world cup event AcroAria in Omenga (Italy), but also convinces the jury equally at Acromax at Lago di Cavazzo (Italy) and comes out on top of the strong competition with the perfect score.

Schmidt shows constantly her best performance and absolutely deserves the title in the women’s competition. But there is no time to rest on her laurels, the acro professional is already training for the new season. “I gotta go now! There is always something new, that you cannot do yet.” so the commentary of Nicole. Nicole relies on the innovative wings by U-Turn and is competing with the legendary acro wing THRILLER this season. High dynamic and precise handling are what characterize this professional wing, but Nicole still appreciates the high level of passive safety of the wing. The innovative U-Turn Pressure Balance Valves (PBV) in the bottom sail make that possible, since these are providing additional aeration in extreme angles of attack. The valves supply air to the wing in case of unfavorable
aeration and therefore maintain the dynamic pressure longer.

We are happy to have an exceptional talent like Nicole in the U-Turn acro team, who pushes the level in the women’s acro scene higher. Just like U-Turn constantly optimizes its products and pushes innovation, Nicole provides important advice for the product development by U-Turn.

The U-Turn team congratulates the new number one to her outstanding performance and wishes her best of luck and success for her upcoming projects.
