Wind tunnels close to DZ's Can't Post

Hi all, are these tunnels the only ones that are in close proximity to a DZ?

- Skyventure XP
- iFly Orlando
- Skyventure Arizona

What I am seeking advice on is that I am looking to take a week of vacation and spend some time in the tunnel each evening and jump at a DZ during the day.

I am looking to improve my RW skills so an integrated coaching program would be great.

Thanks

In the US, you also have Perris.

In Europe: Empuria.

iFly Seattle is close to two USPA drop zones, and you could easily jump all day at either of them and then fly in the tunnel all night. It's about 1-1.5 hours by car depending on traffic from either DZ to the tunnel.

Skyventure NH is 15 minutes from Pepperell which flies an otter 7 days a week in the summer. It's about 45 minutes to the beach and Boston. Hour or so to the White Mountains.

Here's a list of just a few DZs near iFLY Orlando

Skydive Deland - 45 minutes
Skydive City / Zephyrhills - 1 hour
Skydive Sebastain - 2 hours
Skydive Lake Wales - 1 hour

Let me know if you're coming this way, I can help you with both tunnel (I'm an instructor) and sky (Coach, Organizer, Videographer, soon to be AFF instructor).

iFLY Orlando also has the cheapest rates for tunnel time out of the tunnels you listed.

Cheers

Hard to beat Eloy for a tunnel/skydive vaca, IMO, it is the best training facility in the world. No car needed, world class instructors, facility, load organizers. just don't go in the summer.
