Why should I fly in the tunnel / get tunnel coaching?

Indoor skydiving is a sport all onto itself. However, its influence on skydiving has made a tremendous impact.

In our opinion it is no longer possible to be competitive in the free fall disciplines without tunnel training. This valuable tool helps isolate and concentrate your free fall time without any interruptions such as riding to altitude, checking your altitude, packing, etc. All you have to do is focus on flying your body.

Not only are you able to receive a concentrated dose of free fall in a much shorter time frame than it would take you to jump it, the quality is much greater because of all the reference points you are surrounded by.

In addition, your coach is never more than 14 feet away. The wind tunnel is a controlled learning environment that accelerates the learning curve for any level of flyer.

FAQ Overview

Body Flight Theory—Part 1:
A Skydiving Coordinate System

By Niklas Daniel. Photos and illustrations by Niklas Daniel.

In order to fully exploit our body’s maneuvering potential in the air, we have to understand what is aerodynamically and physically possible and which underlying principles apply. This paper will eventually cover theory and application for all human flight disciplines, whether for training purposes or general inquiries.

The goal of part 1 of this paper is to establish a more elegant and convenient way to visualize body-flight movement with the purpose of creating order by introducing AXIS systems. You will be introduced to aerodynamic fundamentals and principles of a person in freefall – be it skydiving, base jumping, or flying in a vertical wind tunnel.
