INDOOR SKYDIVING DISCIPLINES
Indoor skydiving includes several fascinating disciplines, which range from classic disciplines, that were adopted from skydiving, to modern disciplines, that have been developed in the wind tunnels worldwide during the last years and have meanwhile been established in international competitions.
This classic discipline has its roots in skydiving and can be performed in the wind tunnel without major adaptions. A team that consists of 2 to 8 persons flies in face-down position and shows particular formations which have been allotted before. The team that flies the most of those formations in a given time without mistakes wins.
VERTICAL FORMATION SKYDIVING
This discipline is similar to Formation Skydiving, just with the difference that the flyers are not in a face-down but in a vertical position (upside down or seated). Thereby the flown speed increases and also the complexity of the requested formations.
Dynamic Flying arose in the wind tunnel and is the technically most demanding discipline. It requires from the two or four flyers the flying of previously determined motion sequences and lines against the clock. For mistakes the team gets a time penalty, and the team with the fastest time wins.
Not only a very popular but also beautiful and artistic discipline of indoor skydiving. A performer flies a previously rehearsed choreography, mostly accompanied by music. The level of difficulty, presentation and performance will then be rated.
TWO STRONG PARTNERS
At Hurricane Factory you can test rental suits from rainbowsuits, have your measurements taken and order your suit directly on the spot. As soon as your suit is ready it will be delivered to our wind tunnel, and you can fly directly with your new suit at the next visit.
With our certified trainers we are able to qualify you at Hurricane Factory as indoor skydiving instructor. In the process you get to learn everything about the technique of the wind tunnel and also how to ensure a safe performance of our sport in- and outside the wind tunnel. Besides the secure moving in the wind tunnel at different speeds, the briefing of first-time flyers and their safe attendance in the wind tunnel belong to the training elements as well as the guiding of prospective Pro Flyers and the support of their learning process.
