Wat is indoor skydiven?


Indoor skydiven doe je in een zogenoemde verticale windtunnel. In de windtunnel wordt de vrije val bij het parachutespringen nagebootst. Daarbij beweegt de lucht van beneden naar boven met snelheden die variëren van o tot en met 275 kilometer per uur. Voor mensen is het dus mogelijk om veilig in een verticale windtunnel te vliegen zonder daarvoor gebruik te hoeven maken van een vliegtuig of een parachute.

De geschiedenis van indoor skydiven

De geschiedenis van indoor skydiven gaat terug naar de jaren zestig en zeventig. Toen was men bezig met de ontwikkeling van een systeem om een vrije val te simuleren. Dit systeem werd ontwikkeld voor militaire parachutisten, om zo te kunnen trainen. Skydiven, indoor is namelijk vele malen efficiënter dan outdoor. Al gaandeweg heeft de sport zich verder ontwikkeld. Er zijn steeds betere technieken gekomen om de vrije val te simuleren. Het resultaat zijn de indoor skydive windtunnels die we vandaag de dag kennen. Indoor Skydive Roosendaal is er hier één van.

Tegenwoordig is indoor skydiven in een windtunnel óók een recreatieve sport geworden. Naast dat defensie, militaire parachutisten en hobby parachutisten windtunnels gebruiken om te trainen. Zijn het ook de dagjesmensen die de weg naar de windtunnel goed weten te vinden!

International diplomated instructors are working at Indoor Skydive Roosendaal!

Get ready to fly: dit staat jou te wachten!


You’re going to skydive indoors, awesome! But how exactly does that work?

Preparation begins at home. Ensure in any case that you are wearing comfortable clothes. You don’t have to wear special shoes – you will get some from us.

On arrival at Indoor Skydive Roosendaal we will first give you an overall, shoes, a helmet, safety goggles and earplugs. You will then change, and we’ll take you to the instruction area. With help from a video, you will see exactly how indoor skydiving works.

Thus you will learn the posture you need to adopt to enter the wind tunnel, and you will also learn how the instructor, your supervisor, will be able to give you instructions in the wind tunnel. Talking to each other is not possible because of the wind, so the instructor will teach you special physical positions like stretching out your legs or holding your head high.

And that’s all there is to it, you’re going to skydive indoors! On a large screen you will see exactly when it’s your turn to enter the wind tunnel. Per skydive session you will be in the wind tunnel for 60 seconds. That’s why it’s important to be ready on time. Because of course you don’t want to miss any of your time in the wind tunnel.
Your unique experience begins at that moment in Indoor Skydive Roosendaal. You are floating! In the initial skydive session the instructor will help you to find the most ideal position, and once you’ve got the feel for it then you can very quickly float entirely independently through the tunnel.
Once you’ve completed your time in the wind tunnel, that’s when the afterglow begins! The adrenalin is still coursing through your body! The instructor takes you to explain how you did in the wind tunnel. On completion everyone gets a special Indoor Skydive Certificate showing what components you mastered. This certificate is important, because you need to bring it along the next time you come to skydive indoors. That’s because once you have mastered all the components of indoor skydiving, then you are permitted to enter the wind tunnel independently (or with friends who have also completed the certificate).
On conclusion, you may also pay for a DVD to take home, to show friends and family that you have skydived indoors. Hopefully you are so enthusiastic that we will soon be able to welcome you back again!
