Wind Tunnels

Skydiving wind tunnels have become a very popular training tool for skydivers; none skydivers can also enjoy the freedom of flight, without the risks associated with skydiving.

Wind tunnels generate a cussion of air at speeds in excess of 120 mph (the terminal velocity of a skydiver) to duplicate the sensation of freefall skydiving.

Flying in a wind tunnel is sometimes refered to as "indoor skydiving". Skydivers and none skydivers can compete in formation skydiving and freefly competitions.
