12" SkyVenture type vs. 16" Bedford for firsttimer Can't Post

Hello Everyone,

I am tunnel first timer and want to train very basic positions and movements + RW2 in tunnel.

What will you chose? 12" is almost 50% cheaper for me, but would it be outstanding for RW2?

Thank you for all opinions.

Sorry, if this topic is already discussed on other place, please post link, I didn't find it.

Hello Milan,

this is the case when they say bigger aint better.
On your level of RW skills going for a larger Tunnel wount give you higher quality time then a smaller 12ft one,
for your level, they are the same,
the rest is up to level of coaching.

Have you heard of 12 ft SkyVenture Freezone ,Moscow , Pro Tunnel for fair money.

1. Professional indoor skydiving simulator
2. perfect air flow
3. pro RW coaching
4. RW4 men fit in a 12 ft tunnel

Currently you can get a Low Season Offer
Block of 10h below 3399euro+1h for free.

Any tunnel should be adequate if you only intend to work on Belly / RW skills.

I agree with Vadimus........You should seek out a tunnel that has great coaches. They are what you should concentrate on with regard to advancing your skills.

I agree with the others.

Both are good tunnels to fly in. For what you're looking to do, the SkyVenture tunnel should be great.

Also, strictly for safety reasons and the benefit of your health, I would opt for 12' and 16' tunnels over the foot wide ones... otherwise be sure to bring LOTS of lube.

Cool other than that, listen to what everyone else said, he he he...

We just returned from Freezone and I can say only that it was wonderful!

We had no single issue, just fun from flying and we feel big progress for little money;)

There was no issue with size of tunnel as well.We flow formations of 2 students+coach inside on belly.

Thank you Vadimus, Alena, Voloda, Ivan, Timur, Roman and all Freezone crew!Hope we will fly together soonWink
