Located on the Gap-Tallard airfield, this space also known as “a wind tunnel” provides the same sensations as a skydiving jump.

A unique concept in Europe, the flights take place inside an 8 meter high glass seam offering a 360° breathtaking view on the exterior.

“Guided by a qualified instructor, the flights take place in complete safety, with no vertigo. The session costs four time less than a real skydiving jump while providing a similar sensation. Well-known in the world of skydiving, a “wind tunnel” is an essential tool for skydivers and national teams, as it enables to progress in optimal conditions all year long,” explains the team of aficionados at On'Air Soufflerie.
