Once suited up, you and your group from Verona VA will be escorted into the vertical flight chamber where each participant will take turns flying one-on-one with help from your Indoor Skydiving Instructor. The flight chamber is a vertical wind tunnel that simulates the freefall of real skydiving as it produces airspeeds of up to 185 mph! During your session, participants will take turns leaning into the wind and flying indoors! Plus, you will enjoy the equivalent freefall of almost 6 skydives! Your friends and family will be part of the same group however you will fly one at a time in the flight chamber one-on-one with your instructor. Once you have gained more flight experience then you will be able to fly with others of the same skill level in the tunnel. If someone chooses just to watch, they are welcome to accompany you though your experience and can watch from the complimentary observation area.
You don’t need prior flying experience. Just suit up and let the instructors prepare you with the fundamentals of how to fly in the wind tunnel chamber in Verona VA 24482. The wind tunnel moves air up in a vertical column, carrying you in a controlled soar in the safety of a conical room. The room’s Plexiglas windows mean your family and friends can watch as you fly, and then you can watch them. Huge, 541 horsepower, fans at the bottom create wall-to-wall airflow in the climate-controlled tunnel with a 16.5-foot circular chamber to propel air upwards at about 120 mph (195 km/h) or more, stronger than a Category 5 hurricane. This force is enough to keep a full grown adult suspended in the air, above the fan blades, and can mimic the feeling of flying over Virginia, which is the sensation skydivers describe.
Discovering an indoor sky diving place can be much more challenging – With standard sky diving, you can normally discover a drop zone in every state in the nation and in most international nations. All they require is a little plane, the sky diving gear and a qualified instructor.

Some drop zones will have a vertical wind tunnel on-site to assist prepare you for your jump, but by and huge indoor sky diving facilities are not the standard.
