At the same time, it is also a perfect venue for beginners who are looking for a highlight. The spacious flight area combined with smooth and soft airflow will impress any adventure seeker.

competition standard

Indoor skydiving has been growing as a sport, and since 2015 regular World Championships are organised.

Through years of research and development, we have designed technology that has become the top pick among skydivers and can easily qualify for competitions.

AERODIUM Model R4 was the host of the 2018 FAI World Championship in Bahrain. It accommodated all main disciplines of indoor skydiving.

skydiving training

AERODIUM Pro line models have the power and quality of the airflow that is needed to unleash new levels of flying speed, precision, and creativity.

  • Skydivers. Recirculation tunnels are weather independent, therefore, skydivers can polish their flying skills at any time.
  • Paratroopers. The power of recirculation tunnels allows military skydivers to practice skydiving with full equipment and become better prepared for combat situations.
  • Bodyfliers. With development of wind tunnels bodyflight has become a new sport category in itself.

premium design

Pro series tunnel is the best fit for any high-end location, where design and WOW factors are crucial.

  • Conceptual idea. In the design of flight chamber we aimed to emphasize the extraordinary aspect of levitation.
  • Special effects. AERODIUM recirculation tunnels are equiped with various technologies to create a show effect.
  • Premium details. Flying is a premium activity, therefore, we use premium materials to enhance this experience.

SIGNATURE FEATURES

Pro series models have top safety and entertainment features.

  • B.A.S.E. chamber. An optional feature for experienced flyers simulating a B.A.S.E. jump exit in a controlled environment at the top of the flight chamber.
  • Impact Reduction System. Our latest invention turns the safety net at the bottom of the flight chamber into a trampoline as impact absorption surface in cases of high falls.
  • Fly Wheel Technology. A heavy steel hub for fan blades ensures higher air inertia in case of power outage and provides flyers with sufficient airflow for a safe landing.

FAQ

What is the capacity of Aerodium vertical wind tunnels?

Vertical wind tunnels have a maximum capacity of 25 flights per hour with a flight time of 2 minutes per person.

Passive Capacity: Spectators love watching people fly in wind tunnels, including acrobatic tricks by pro flyers. The entertainment value of this attraction makes it the perfect anchor for alternative revenue sources like food and beverage, retail products, sponsorship opportunities, and corporate and competitive events.

Why are permanent installations more expensive than open-air?

Classic permanent installations require large-scale building constructions, often involving excavations to accommodate return air chambers. Everything together makes a rather massive construction with high costs. In contrast, open-air wind tunnels do not need a foundation and can be placed on any even surface, such as a parking lot.

Franchise or outright ownership?

You have a choice between both – franchising and outright ownership. With outright ownership, you have more freedom to operate the business as you wish. The downside is that it will require a much deeper involvement and building your own brand. In the franchise option, you would get a full support package and the renowned Aerodium branding, which both will facilitate running the business.

How big is the flight zone?

The size of a tunnel is measured most commonly by the diameter of the flight chamber. The larger the diameter, the more people can fly simultaneously. The most common size is 14 ft (4.3 m), which is required by pro skydivers and for competitions. However, recently smaller sized tunnels are becoming increasingly popular, as they are more efficient for training beginners and more affordable for the general public. But generally, wind tunnels from 2m up to 9.8m in diameter can be found.
