Flying in this vertical wind tunnel was an awesome experience! I did my first two minutes of flying there with Nathan Roth. He was a very good instructor, got quickly through the basics and held back as much as possible when in the tunnel. I managed to keep myself stable-ish quickly so he moved on to teaching me how to turn, which was cool.

When you go there you join a group of 8 or 9, I'm not sure, and everybody takes turns in the tunnel. This is actually good because you can learn a lot from other people's mistakes, but also makes the whole process a little long, took me over an hour between briefing and leaving the facility with a smile in my face :D. I only wish there was a second instructor explaining to the rest of the group exactly what the person in the tunnel is doing wrong.

Flying for the first time costs about $58 for two runs, gear and briefing. After that each minute costs $17 (with gear, I guess). If you plan to go there, call them ahead and book your flight. I called them a day before and they only had a single slot available.

Heads up contact lenses users! Bring an extra set! My goggles were tight and I still managed to loose a contact on each flight!
