How is Indoor Skydiving and free fall practiced in Belgium?

Skydiving as a leisure activity was largely developed in the 70s and 80s, however it took a while longer for Indoor Skydiving to open up to the grand audience. The first windtunnels were initially only used to allow experienced skydivers to enhance their skills.

Indoor Skydiving has little by little become its own sport in which national and international competitions are organized.

The advantages of practicing Indoor Skydiving have quickly opened this activity to the grand audience, bringing with it the opening of windtunnels around the world. Opening in 2014, Airspace Indoor Skydiving became the first Indoor Skydiving windtunnel facility in Belgium.

  • A flight in a windtunnel is the equivalent of doing two skydives from a plane flying at 4000 meters of altitude
  • No need to worry about the weather forecast
  • A very interesting price for beginners as well as for Proflyers
  • An activity that you can practice in total safety
  • No fear of heights or flying
