Sky Diving.... Indoors?

Jason Flying

This evening, I was invited to the Central Region's gathering at an indoor skydiving place (thanks Drew and Josh). This is a huge vertical wind tunnel that you actually "fly" in, due mostly in part to the 120+ MPH wind that is generated right under you.

Our time per flight was about 90 seconds. According to the instructor, a normal freefall from an airplane (before you deploy your chute) is about 60 seconds.

Dustin Campbell was also in the same group that was in the airlock at the same time, so I have his pictures on the DVD's that were provided to us as a keepsake:
