Wind Tunnel Listings Added to Dropzone.com

We would like to introduce the latest addition to Dropzone.com, our wind tunnel listings! We’ve been working hard at gathering information on all the active indoor skydiving venues from around the world, resulting in a list of 26 wind tunnels, spanning 12 countries, making it the most comprehensive and up to date list of vertical wind tunnels online.

We have modelled the indoor skydiving section on that of our dropzone database, allowing you to review your experience, in turn helping others in choosing the best places to indoor skydive, and focusing on allowing you to quickly and easily find venues using GPS plotting.


Users will be able to find detailed information about each dropzone in the listing, including time block pricing, training pricing, technical information and contact details.

Indoor skydiving has become an essential part of competitive freefly training and continues to provide a platform for the evolution of body flight. With the continued growth of the sport, and the establishment of new tunnels, the future of indoor flying is looking extremely bright.

We welcome and encourage users who have flown at any of the wind tunnels to submit a review of their experience. Should you know of a wind tunnel that is not listed in the database, you are able to submit a listing yourself, or contact us via e-mail and we will add the listing for you.

Our database will continue to be built on and maintained by both dropzone.com and the respective owners and staff of the tunnels. If you are a staff member of one of the tunnels listed in our database, you can claim the listing.

"making it the most comprehensive and up to date list of vertical wind tunnels online."
Debatable! My site - http://jumpticketprices.com/tunnels.asp (which is in a sticky in the wind tunnels section) has got 50 tunnels spanning 22 countires on it just now. Whether they are all active and the completely indoor type, I've no idea.
Feel free to take whatever info is on my site and include it on yours - I'm happy to share!!

Kris - I agree, the claim in this article that this us the most comprehensive list is not accurate. Thanks also for being willing to share. We deliberately didn't just scrape your data first because that's not how we roll, but also because we wanted to visit the site of each tunnel ourselves, check that it still exists, validate the data and also collect some additional datapoints. Feel free to update from here if you find anything if use.

Voss Ventus should definitely be on there. You should also add whether the tunnel is recirculating or not and it might be interesting to see if it's an iFly or other design. Another point that could be useful is whether the tunnel shuts down between sessions or not (Voss Ventus doesn't have to, nor do iFly Dallas or Austin).
