Imagine a wind tunnel that could be used for testing the aerodynamics of an F1 racing car, turn it upright, jump onto the airflow and you are skydiving. It's a proven concept operating in several countries to the benefit of the skydiving community and anyone else who wishes to taste the thrill of freefall in a completely safe environment.
After check-in there’s a short class with a video brief and instruction, then it’s off to collect your flight gear. You and your group will enter the tunnel and take it in turns to fly. You will enjoy two flights lasting one minute each; that's about the same as three tandem skydives. In your first flight you will learn the basic freefall position to then practise in your second session. You will receive a DVD to remember your experience on the day.
