Flight In The Vertical Wind Tunnel (4 min)


Do you want to try to fly like a bird and experience unique and fantastic emotions? The airflow in the vertical wind tunnel is so strong that a person is able to fly into the flow without any additional equipment, and reach for the sky. All you need is the desire to soar without wings; previous experience is not required. It is safe to fly in the wind tunnel – an instructor will assist the customer throughout the entire flight.

Check In: 5 - 10 min

At the wind tunnel, you will be greeted by friendly staff who will help you to book your flight and answer your questions. Then you will be asked to fill out a contract about security terms during the flight and you will be introduced with your flight instructor.

Briefing: 10 min

The flight instructor will tell you about the process of the flight, as well as the rules and safety standards. You will be shown flying postures to acquire during the flight.

Gear Up: 10 min

The flight instructor will give you flying gear and show how to properly use it. First, you will put on the flight suit over your clothes and shoes, put earplugs in your ears to absorb noise, put the hygiene hairnet on your head and finally – glasses and helmet.

Warm Up: 5 min

The flight instructor will lead you to do some body warm-up exercises. The body should be warmed up before the flight just as before any other physical activity.

Flight: 4 min

At the beginning, the flight instructor will help you to get adjusted to the wind flow. When you are accustomed to it, the instructor will help you to fly in the wind stream. If you are able to fly well, the instructor will rise with you in the air up to 3 meters in height. During the flight, you will feel joy, happiness, freedom and independence. And most importantly – you will feel how it is – to fulfill your dream of flying!

Customer reviews

Review by Andrew O. From United Kingdom || 2017-07-08 17:51:16
This was a great experience. One of those rare ones, when you get to do something really cool that no one has done before. We were picked up from hotel by mini van and after driving through Riga and then some countryside we arrived. Staff at the wind tunnel was very friendly and after instruction we got dressed and went to fly. It is harder than it looks even flying lasts only few minutes. Afterwards our guide gathered us and we made our way back to hotel. It was all very well organized. Thank you very much!
