Recommended Posts

I was there back in 2009. (the big tunnel was still under construction). I was never at any other tunnel, so no references, but I keep good memories. Learned lots of stuff. Flew 5.5 hours, freefly.
Staff was very nice.
English language could be an issue to some extent, as not all coaches have same english speaking skills.
Still, lots of people (foreigners) are coming from Kolomna DZ, doing some tunnel flying then back to DZ do some jumps. I think it`s about hour+ drive dz-to-tunnel.
I hope I was helpfull.

There no windtunnel at Kolomna
There is 2 locations near/at Moskow with 3 WT

The Freezone near Chehov (actually closer to DZ Pushino than to DZ Kolomna) has Skyventure's 12 and 16.5 ft tunnels http://www.realfly.ru/eng/ both with full range of speed you'd need
Very experienced staFF (many of them speaks english) and so on...

The other WayPark in Moskow has 13.5 ft tunnel closer to bedford design
http://www.aerotruba.ru/about/contact.html
also has all speed you'd need
Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?

Yep there is a traffic troubles (at friday more from Moskow to KLMN) so what?

WT rates at weekend are far from optimum either... so it will be wise to go in da WT at the middle of the week)

I was in the small tunnel a few years ago. I recall it being very much like the Airkix tunnel in Milton Keynes, UK if that is any help...

I was doing sit fly training, and had plenty of speed for that.
