In a recirculating wind tunnel, the air used to lift flyers passes through the flight chamber over and over again, instead of just once, as in a “single-pass” tunnel. Due in part to this approach, along with other complementary technologies, SkyVenture recirculating wind tunnels are the most efficient and greenest wind tunnels in the world, using far less power than other wind tunnels.
SkyVenture wind tunnels are the safest in the world due to their aerodynamically efficient and stable design that yields wall-to-wall airflow in the flight section of the tunnel. This very important design feature makes it impossible to fall off the air column or get tangled in the net.
SkyVenture wind tunnels are the most aerodynamically stable, robust, high efficiency, low-maintenance wind tunnels in the world.
