Why am I envisioning a wind tunnel with one set of fans, but two playrooms: the first - horizontal - playroom for wing-shifters, then a second - vertical - playroom for the rest.
We might eventually see a whole "chain" of playrooms tailored (by venturies) for different speeds and styles of skydiving.

There's much more options. You could probably start in HD then go on to angle flying and then further to tracking. All in the same tunnel without leaving the flow. Smile

Wow wingsuit flying for $97.00 for 4 minutes without all the risk. I know it isn't the same but still - it's cheaper than I thought until I translated the site via their icon.

Anyone in Sweden ought to go for it and give a report here.

I'm envisioning a complete circuit route like those hamster cage tubes, which you could fly through and work your way back around to where you started. You could have races for best time through the circuit.

I would purchase 30 minutes for 5980SEK (ca. 650USD) to get certified as a Indoor Wingsuitflyer to fly without harness and instructor's hands-on.

Heck, use your imagination. You would need extra fans at various points to replenish the air speed.

It seems just one tiny thing is missing in your concept - fairy dust. Wink
