Indoor Skydiving in the United Kingdom
The first british modern wind tunnel, and one of the largest in the world, was Bodyflight Bedford. This Wind Tunnel opened in Bedford back in 2005. The location was a formerly military research base, with five wind tunnels designing and testing the latest aircraft developments. Some very noteable creations started their lives there: the Harrier Jump Jet and the Concorde development were born in Bedford. Bodyflight Bedford hosts yearly the famous World Challenge competition.
Lately Airkix contributed to the development of Indoor Skydiving in UK with new succesfull locations in Bristol, Basingstoke, Manchester and Milton Keynes. Now other brands have announced new openings in the next few years making UK one of the top players on the Indoor Skydiving european scene.
Indoor Skydiving is becoming everyday more and more appreciated by british people of all ages.
