I decided to throw together a highlight reel from my first 5 hours in the tunnel at iFLY Utah. It spans about 6 months. This stuff is too much fun!

You're much further than I was after 5 hours. SmileSmile I was still on head down on the net at that point trying to get stable.

Nice one, Marc. Hopefully I'll see you up at the tunnel again at some point. :-)

Thanks much for the video. I'm at 36 measly minutes but now will use your progression as kind of a goal schedule.

What percentage of fan power are they pushing you with in belly, sit and head down? Just curious.

I'm 5 - 9 and 140# and Orlando belly flies me at 72 to 77 %. Actually when they turned it up to 77 % I really knew it and got a bit nervous but handled it.

Keep in mind 70% in the Orlando tunnel is nothing like 70% at other tunnels

I fly at 100% in Orlando and 78% in New Hampshire in a sitfly position.

Every tunnel is different, so the numbers won't give you much reference. It has been a little since I've been in there, but I think most flying for me ranged from 60-85% if I am in there alone.
