The bottom level of the concrete building of the Tokyo tunnel is almost finished. The platform with the workers in the center is where the confusor will be installed and through which the air-stream will run upwards to the flight chamber.
A joint ventrue between FlyStation and Tacos Telecom was set up several days ago. The construction of the FlyStation Korea wind tunnel is to begin in South Korea later this year.
Diagonal slopes, where the turning vanes will be mounted, can already be seen.
Our Chief Mechanical Engineer Ivan Savchenko in front of the assembled diffuser, which is to be installed right above the glass walls of the flight chamber. RGB projectors will be mounted in the holes to enhance flights with incredible special effects lighting.
In an old Japanese tradition an amulet Omamori was placed into the concrete foundation of the building to ensure the gods protection.
A couple of meters of soil to be excavated, and the construction of the concrete part of the building is ready to start.
The piles are carefully engineered to easily withstand earthquakes, which are not uncommon in Japan.
Verification of assemby of the top corner parts of the air duct has been successfully passed at the factory. Slots for our notorius patented turning vanes can be seen on the diagonals.
The third set of sample profiles for tuning vanes has arrived.
Preliminary assembly of the longest sections of the air duct located under the axial fans has begun at the fibreglass parts production plant.
In addition to ensuring high fan efficiency, the air duct’s thick walls also effectively muffle noise, resulting in quiet fans.
