Indoor Wind Tunnel Safety

Wednesday May 07

Indoor Wind Tunnel Safety is so good that you don't need to worry about a fear of heights, jumping, or falling. You'll start flying only feet above the ground, within arm's reach of a highly-trained instructor. As your comfort level increases, you can go to higher altitudes and attempt more complex maneuvers while still maintaining a high level of safety.

Indoor Skydiving is perfect for the large number of people that are afraid of heights since, in a vertical wind tunnel, the 'skydiver' only floats a few feet above trampoline-type netting. For those who are uncertain about taking the plunge of an actual skydive from 10,000 feet or higher,iIndoor skydiving allows you to experience the feel of wind rushing past at terminal velocity while you float on a cushion of air at a safe altitude and within reach of a trained flight instructor.

Obviously, one of the most basic ways to be safe in an indoor wind tunnel is to wear a helmet. This protects your best feature upon landing and is a safety precaution that should always be observed. That’s about all you, as a participant, need to worry about. The rest of the safety concerns are taken care of by the company providing the service. All of the companies we support have the best maintained equipment, certified instructors, and clean jumpsuits and helmets. All you need to do is work up the courage to try some indoor skydiving.

Wind speed can be adjusted in vertical wind tunnels to accommodate the abilities and aerodynamics of an individual. Wind tunnel flying is a low impact activity, though warm-up exercises are frequently recommended prior to flying in one. As a result of the controlled safety of a vertical wind tunnel, indoor skydiving is generally suitable for participants of all ages - even children can enjoy the sensation of skydiving! Who knows you may even find yourself becoming a “tunnel rat.” Frequent visitors to a vertical wind tunnel are often called 'tunnel rats', much like frequent visitors to ski slopes are called 'ski bums'.

Bodyflight, or 'body flight', is the art of 'flying your body' in a controlled manner. This include turns, rolls, lateral movement, fall rate control, and other acrobatics in the air. The skill of bodyflight makes it possible for skydivers to fly closer to each other while they are falling, to allow them to link together in formation skydiving, then fly apart to a safe distance before opening parachutes. Many skills of bodyflight can be learned in a vertical wind tunnel, to enable skydivers to become better at controlling their bodies in the sky. Why not let your own body take flight?
