An Indoor Wind Tunnel For Learning How To Fly With A Wingsuit

This is a video of the proof of concept for the Inclined Indoor Wingsuit Flying facility opening in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2017. It's basically a wind tunnel that lets you fly with a wingsuit in a much more controlled environment than having just jumped out of an airplane grasping a twin bedsheet. It's like one of those indoor skydiving tubes. Me? I prefer the baby bird method of learning how to do something new. "Just getting pushed out of the nest?" Exactly. I learned to drive one day when my dad tossed me his car keys and told me to go pick up my little sister from school. I was eight and it was more amazing than any roller coaster.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Macca, who agrees you don't need a wingsuit to fly if you've got fairy dust.
