STUNT DOUBLE

In the year 2017, the Aerodium team was tasked to accomplish a seemingly impossible mission. Build the world’s largest open-air wind tunnel in just under three months for Hollywood’s top blockbuster “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” with Tom Cruise.  Four independent fans provide a fast and smooth airflow, which can be powered via an electric grid or diesel generators. With a flight area of 23 square meters equivalent to 248 square feet, it is the largest open-flow vertical wind tunnel in the world. AERODIUM provided the technology, on set coordination, and stunt training to safely capture on film one of the most ambitious skydiving action scenes ever filmed.
