New outdoor and indoor skydiving vertical wind tunnel models by Aerodium is targeted to innovate in the retail real estate sector

Model R2 History

They say trust takes years to build. We’ve built ours over the last 40 years. We go back to the year 1979, when Aerodium, world’s first public wind tunnel for customer entertainment, is born. The creation of the brilliant inventor Jean Saint-Germain allowed people to fulfill their dream of flying. A true masterpiece way ahead of its time.

We’ve taken on the challenge to continue the tradition of innovation, presenting new solutions year after year. The Recon exhibition in Las Vegas in May 2019 saw a completely new wind tunnel concept. It is called the SHOPPING MALL READY model R2. This is an important step forward in the retailtainment industry, addressing market trends and making implementation easier than ever.


The model R2 belongs to recirculation type of vertical wind tunnels (recognized by the abbreviation R). The tunnel has fans at the top to draw air through the flight chamber and to push it back down the sides, creating an air loop. Air returns back to the bottom before being blown up in the flight chamber through an inlet contractor. Such wind tunnels are weather independent and can be operated all year long.

There is a long-standing belief that indoor tunnels are much quieter than their outdoor rivals, having a significantly lower noise level. This was indeed the case until Aerodium introduced a new generation open-air tunnel lineup (abbreviation O) in 2017 with a significant drop of noise level. However, if you have the space and wish to build a tunnel at a permanent location the R2 is still the better choice.

EASY INTEGRATION in already existing buildings

The use of existing construction sites is a great advantage, as it makes it much easier to implement the project in both time and money. There is surely a need for basic works. All in all, it can be said that the construction of this type of wind tunnel roughly corresponds to the status of a building overhaul in a limited area of less than 100 sq.m.
