The big attraction this winter is the new SkyDream installation in Monaco. A Sky Diving Simulator which simulates realistic feeling of free falling you would get from jumping out of a plane in the pursuit of this extreme sport but without the risks. This is the result of a project by high school students as part of the “Project Communal Junior 2016-2017” click here for more details

Indoor skydiving is the simulation of true freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. It’s where the dream of flight becomes a reality.
So how does it work? A vertical wind tunnel has fans at the top to draw air through the flight chamber and then push it back down the sides through Return Air Towers. That leads to an inlet contractor that compresses & speeds up the air before it reenters the flight chamber. The result: a smooth column of air that enables you to fly.
The invention of modern wind tunnels has given skydivers a consistent and practical way to develop and hone skills that usually require jumping from a plane. Additionally, the increase in availability of wind tunnels has created a whole new genre of sport – bodyflight. It is one of the most exciting and fastest growing sports in the world.
Here is my little Niece, age 7, enjoying the installation in Monaco last week.
