Technology

Four axial fans, driven by electric motors 1, push the air through left and right loops. The power of each motor is 400–450 kilowatts.

The six sets of turning vanes 4 efficiently direct the air through the bends, while coolant inside the vanes smoothly removes heat from the air.

The left and right airflows are combined in the airjet 5 in the lower centre of the tunnel, creating a single airflow that is directed into the flight chamber 2 located in the vertical part of the tunnel.

The air exchangers in the upper horizontal diffusers 3 provide fresh air, and can also be used to cool the air.

Axial Fans

The airflow is created by highly efficient axial fans, each 3.5 metres in diameter, manufactured by EVG (www.evg-group.de) – one of the leading manufacturers of industrial ventilation systems. The heart of the axial fan is the 400-450 kilowatt electric motor made by Siemens.

Each axial fan is supplied with:

  • an individual frequency convertor
  • carbon-fibre blades (lighter and more reliable than aluminium blades)
  • vibration dampers
  • a set of sensors and diagnostics controllers: vibration, temperature, oil, dynamic and static pressure (pitot tubes)

The axial fans are installed during construction work by EVG engineers. Installation usually takes approximately two weeks.

FRP ducts

Our ducts, including all diffusers and the contraction, are perfectly aerodynamic in shape and are made of thick (90 mm) fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) sandwich, resulting in:

  • No vibration
  • Reduced noise
  • Reduced drag
  • Increased overall tunnel performance

Honeycomb

Our honeycomb straightens the airflow just before the flight chamber, for extra smooth flights.

It is designed to offer the best performance and efficiency.

Building

Air speed is controlled from a unit in a room separated from the flight area by a glass. There, a controller watches sign language from the experienced flyer or bodyflight instructor to make adjustments. The controller can turn the airspeed up for more lift or down for less. These adjustments are done “on the fly,” and are based on the size, skill level and flying style of the tunnel flyer. Though bodyflight wind tunnels are sometimes referred to as “skydiving simulators,” that’s a misnomer: since flyers do not wear or deploy a parachute in a bodyflight wind tunnel, the wind tunnel experience is not a full, true simulation of the skydiving experience.

Project

Aerospace wind tunnels are tools used in aerodynamic research. They are usually built in a horizontal configuration, and they use the airflow to test the action of aerodynamic forces on vehicles in development.
As opposed to these, recreational wind tunnels for human bodyflight are vertical instead of horizontal. Like aerospace tunnels, bodyflight tunnels use fans to generate a powerful airstream that can be controlled by an operator. However, that airflow is directed up from the bottom of the “tube,” simulating the aerodynamic forces of relative wind on a body in freefall.

Depending on the model, age and manufacturer, various propellers and fan types are to move air through the bodyflight area. Typically, these create a vertical column of air that measures between 6 and 16 feet wide.
