Singapore/IFly Wind Tunnel Can't Post

So the Parachutist from a couple months back had a neat Skyventure back cover with pictures of the sites in operation and sticky note with those underconstruction on it.

Who knows if those "under construction" are REALLY under construction or just more of those that are "under consideration"?

Because one of the was Singapore, and I'm in this week and would like to go to the site just for the fun of it - even if it's just a hole in the ground right now.

Sounds like completion is expected to be Q1-2K9, if any place can do it on time, my money is on Singapore

AFAIK (dont remember where I read it) it will be same specs as Airkix (14 ft/1200hp IIRC). When I was last there in August they were training the Singapore instructors.

Saw a couple of the instructors getting training at Airkix a couple of months ago - from there they were moving on to iFLY sf bay I believe.

According to them, the tunnel would be opening in August 2009?

Hey Tim, I am moving to Singapore from NZ in a month or so. Do you go up to Malaysia for any jumping or is it a bit of a mission? Do you have your rig with you and if so do you have any problems storing it with the humidity? Cheers.

They're slated to open end of 2010, and they still don't have pricing available. Someone mentioned the FB account or you could try their website as well. Not much info, though.
