AERODIUM has started production of a vertical wind tunnel that will be installed in Finland near to Helsinki. It is planned that the installation works will start in autumn 2012 and the tunnel will be available for public in spring 2013. The diameter of tunnel flying chamber is 4.3 meters and the height is 12 meters. This tunnel will be available for beginners and for professionals.

Taking into account the weather conditions of the North Europe (short summers and long winters), tunnel will provide a great chance to train flying skills through out the year.

Jari Kuosma, the founder of Finnish company Birdman*, supports this: "I am so happy to welcome the first wind tunnel in Finland not only because it's a huge advantage too all skydivers within the country but also because it makes the level of skydiving increase dramatically and brings new talent to the sport."

This will be the first recirculation type vertical wind tunnel that AERODIUM is building in North Europe. "Our tunnel is unique because flying chamber will be completely transparent and in a round shape up to 9 meters. Thus the tunnel will ensure great visibility for flyers and for visitors. Even more it will improve the comfort and safety of flying," says Ivars Beitāns AERODIUM CEO.

In addition to the vertical wind tunnel this leisure center will also accommodate water ride, saunas and a restaurant. It will attract people who want to enjoy active and healthy lifestyle.
