HI DAWN -

I'm Bill - It's been nearly 11 months since my last visit

I have:
About half an hour at Flyaway in TN
12 hours at Skyventure, OR

most all of the Skyventure time is coached tunnel camps for 4-way skills. I'm type A about RW and type B about FF, so I won't spend the extra for FF stuff in the tunnel.
I'm organizing a big group for next week at Orlando where about 5 of us are becoming real addicts. My daughter (9) will be in there for their first ever tunnel visit.

Let's bump that total time to about 20 hours after the 2005 and 2006 camps. We're working to a perris camp in the spring. The daughter now has about an hour (and a tunnel PMS number)

Hello,
My name is Brad and I'm a wind tunnel junkie. I've been working for Flyaway Las Vegas for almost 4 years now. I'm addicted to flight, and flying different wind tunnels. The difference in tunnels is fun to learn to adjust to.
~60 hours Flyaway Las Vegas
10 minutes Perris
30 minutes Free Fall Xtreme New Zealand
45 minutes Eloy
15 minutes Flyaway Tn
~1 hour AAC
30 minutes Denver

It's been 5 days since my last flight and the withdrawl symptoms are nearly unbearable.

Anyone traveling to Vegas should contact me, I'd love to fly with you!

Hi....my name is Jenn and I am a tunnel junkie. I have actually quit skydiving in favor of just tunnel flying. Here are my stats:
TUNNELS FLOWN - 8 hours 05 minutes
SkyVenture Orlando - 3 hours 41 minutes
SkyVenture Perris - 25 minutes
AAC - 3 hour 55 minutes
FlyAway Pigeon Forge - 5 minutes
It's gonna be a stretch, but I am gonna try to get to 10 hours before the end of 2006! Wish me luck! Hello to all my other fellow tunnel junkies.

the BIGGER questions.. is WHY are you in such a hurry??? I mean, it's already short enough as it is! If I can make the freefall last longer, I'm THRILLED!! Perhaps you could learn to fall slower?


Best quote EVER Dawn, you are a smart one.

Brett Butler aka Gangle at Flyaway Vegas (6'7" + 175 lbs you get the picture) Flyaway Instructor for almost 2 years so tons of time there plus another hour or so at Venture Colorado.

P.S. This post is neat

Hi All,

My name is Stacey and I'm a tunnel addict! My home tunnel is SkyVenture NH; it's only 6 miles from my house so I'm either blessed or cursed depending on how you look at it! Smile My last "fix" was about 3 weeks ago. I've got about 3 hours total; roughly half that in the last 6 months.

My bodyflight profile and logbook is here

Peace,
Stacey

Hi Dawn,

It's Darlene. Do you still have that silver and lavender infinity container?

I love tunnel flying, and have not really logged my time, so I am going to try to remember. (unlike my skydives which I log meticulously)
I made my first tunnel flight at Action Park in Vernon NJ and went there twice. (4 minutes)
I went out to Las Vegas and did Flyaway on two separate occasions. (4 minutes)
I have gone to Skyventure Orlando once a year almost every year since they opened, but generally only get about five minutes each time.
(Just got back from a session on Wednesday) (about 50 minutes total)
I introduced about 50 teachers, who were at a Kennedy Space Center NASA conference for the Network of Educator Astronaut Teachers, to Wind Tunnel flying last June, so hopefully that will spread the word in the schools across our nation.
And I am planning a trip up to Skyventure New Hampshire for this winter for our dz.
I enjoy just playing in the tunnel and working on freeflying.

So I would guestimate that I have only about an hour or so of tunnel time. Not nearly enoughFrown MUST HAVE MORE!

For the most part I think people who work in the industry just estimate the amount of time they have flying. For myself I have been working at Flyaway Las Vegas for almost 2 years and just figuring my average flight time per week over that period I'm around 20 to 25 hours

I have no clue how much tunnel time I have. But I keep all the receipts, so at least I know how much my addiction has cost me so far...

If I've paid for coaching I've logged the time tediously. I also use the log book for contact info from friends I visit at those tunnels. In addition to my flight time, I count the time I spend coaching because it got too hard to keep it seperate. Way more fun flying than coaching though.

I cringe when I think about this. I go to my online account where I cry at the $ I've lost to the tunnel lol. I could have had a really nice house by now ShockedLaugh I guess I'd have to know where I want to live more than a year out before buying a house though lol!

I have a really hard time figuring out how much I fly, since I fly after hours or during breaks in classes, it's adhoc on how much I get to fly at a time. Derek thinks I'm probably around 5+ hours since last Feb.

I'm Chantelle and I'm a future tunnel-junkie. I have tunnel time booked at Bedford for February and I'm so excited I can hardly see straight. I have been counting the days ever since I paid my deposit! Pirate
In our country we have no wind tunnels so this is a very exciting prospect but if I get addicted I might have to emigrate! CoolPirate

I'm Beth, and I have 45 minutes in the AAC tunnel. It has been months and months and months since I have flown. That must change.

You know there's a spare room around an hour and a bit away from the two UK tunnels if you need a place to stay on your next visit Tongue

Hey Darlene! Good to see you in here.
I do actually still have the container, although it is NOT in my posession. I haven't even jumped it in fact Shocked (I should owe beer or something for that shouldn't ITongue)

It's with a rigger friend of mine in Virginia, and it's in the same pristine condition you gave it to me in, in fact, no one has jumped it since, and I have decided that I should go ahead and sell it. Unimpressed I haven't actually done anything yet to sell it, but I am ready.

Thanks for remembering, it's not that I don't just love the idea, it's just that I haven't jumped since shortly after I got it, and I don't intend to be jumping anytime soon. I figure after a couple of years, it's probably better off in someone's hands who will give it some use. After all it IS an Infinity Tongue

I just got back from SkyVenture New Hampshire, my 3rd trip up there since August, and I just love it. You will all have such a fabulous time!! Enjoy!!

Hi my names Dave. and im a tunnel addict.....(i am typing while thinking im in alcoholic's Anonymous... but with a bit more fun)....lol

some know me as Danny.. i have flown in Parris Areokart, Orlando, Perris, Fly Away Vegas and Bedford.

Dont care to remember how much money i have spent in tunnels but its a fair bit im sure...

Figured i had to get a job that would pay me enough to go in the tunnel as much as i wanted or get a job in a tunnel......

So im now working at Bedford ....YIPPEEEE.

Id just like to say Thanks to those of you at Flyaway Vegas, ( They gave us some time for the hell of it)
We had such a laugh in this tunnel, took me lots of beer to get the smile off my face, and maybe cause i lost at craps too but hey cant win em all...
