Introduction to Indoor Skydiving in Manchester
Wind tunnels have been used for years to test the aerodynamics of cars. Comfortably able to support body weight, with speeds of up to 120 mph, the wind tunnel creates the experience of freefall without the need to plummet from a plane. Begin with a safety briefing from an instructor, before being issued with a specialist flight suit. Then brace the wind tunnel with the instructor, ascending into the air for two incredible 60 second sessions of body flying. Some lucky participants will even get to witness their instructor demonstrate some freefall acrobatics.
