CAN I FLY?
The wingsuit tunnel is open to anyone, and can be practiced without any previous skydiving or basejumping experience. 
The tunnel can be used as a training tool for both sports, or practiced as a fun flying activity on its own.
Indoor Wingsuit Flying is suitable for anyone from age 7 and up. We have wingsuits available for sizes ranging from 140cm up to 205cm. 
There is no special demand, but normal physical fitness is recommended.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR
We recommend wearing comfortable clothes, and shoes that allow for sports activities. 
No heels or platform soles. Wear clothing you would wear to a gym or workout.

I HAVE GLASSES, IS THAT OK?
We use fullface helmets for comfort and protection. 
Wearing glasses inside the helmet is no problem.

FACILITIES IN THE TUNNEL
The tunnel has a lounge with kitchen accessible to all Pro-Flyers, toilets and a shower (towels not available) 
and various supermarkets and restaurants close by. 

There is no bar or food available in the tunnel itself. 
Any food/drinks should be consumed in the designated areas.

IS THERE VIDEO RECORDING
We have an internal video system, with footage available for download from all your flying sessions, free of charge. 
A link to the footage of your session is available the next day, and will be supplied by email. 

CAN I BRING SPECTATORS
It’s possible to bring spectators to the tunnel. Be it family or friends. 
For bigger groups of spectators, please contact us in advance.

WHAT WIND SPEEDS CAN THE TUNNEL DO
We are flying at speeds varying from 90 to 170 km/h.

CAN YOU FLY WITH MULTIPLE PEOPLE
It's possible to fly with multiple people, up to groups of 5 or 6 depending on skill level and experience.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO ACROBATICS
Acrobatics are fully possible, but progression is gradual as walls, ceiling and floor are creating hard limits to what we can do. 
We progress from flying assisted on the 2 cable system, to flying free with a safety 'flight line' attached on the belly. 
From there we enter a phase of individual free flight, coached 2 ways, and a slow progression 
to actual relative formation flight docks, and skills like special landings, backflying and Transitions.

CAN I GO FROM TUNNEL STRAIGHT TO SKYDIVE OR BASE WITHOUT TRAINING
The tunnel will only be a training tool for wingsuit flying skills and precision, 
but will never replace the awareness and skills real skydiving and basejumping teaches. 
This includes airplane and still air exits, navigation, deployment, canopy handling and general awareness.

Basic safety rules and recommendations such as a minimum of 200 freefall skydives experience 
before taking up wingsuit skydiving, and progression beyond, stay valid.

ARE WINGSUIT AND HELMET INCLUDED
For all customers, use of a wingsuit and helmet is included with the booking at no additional charge

CAN I USE MY OWN HELMET
You're allowed to use your own helmet, as long as its fullface, protecting both head and chin, 
and free of any camera mounts or extensions that could potentially get stuck in the net or cables inside the tunnel while flying.

CAN I USE MY OWN WINGSUIT
Its possible to fly any model, and any brand of wingsuit in the windtunnel.

For own wingsuits there is a progression system in place. 
First a customer must show basic skills and control in the wingsuits provided by the tunnel. 
This as the custom tunnel suits have sets of extra safety handles and attachment points for the coaches to use, 
as well as our coaches knowing exactly how the suits handle for each costumer. 
As the first sessions are purely aimed at skill, we want to first make sure the student is in full control 
before introducing other variables, due to differing models, size and fit on personal suits.

Once passed the initial stages of unassisted flight, customers can choose to switch to other suits, 
be it controlled by a progression chart related to suit size. 
Own rookie and intermediate suits can be flown immediately after flight clearance. 

Advanced/open category suits are possible to fly, but as a training aid for skill show little benefit, 
as bigger suits are more demanding in terms of maneuvers and control. 
Making them a bit more difficult to fly with the same precision, increasing 
risk of injury and dramatically decreasing the rate of learning and effective use of the tunnel.

WHAT CAN I DO TO PREPARE MYSELF PHYSICALLY FOR TUNNEL FLYING
If you have multiple sessions booked over several days, its important to realize it can be bit of a workout.
Wingsuit flying is not heavy on the body or (more specific) arms, but its the buildup of multiple sessions that does introduce fatigue.
Doing active cardio exercises in the gym, as well as playing with small weights and arm movement to build shoulder, 
chest and arm strength can be of added value, and help build the stamina needed to fly longer sessions.

CAN I BUY MY OWN WINGSUIT
We are able to assist you in advising and/or purchasing your own wingsuit.

WHAT IS THE BEST SUIT TO USE
Any wingsuit in the rookie or intermediate size category is a good choice for flying.
We have noticed quite differing results in various personal suits, 
with looser fit not being ideal for indoor high precision flying. 
We recommend (any brand) a tight fit at the hips, and good overall fit, without too much loose fitting fabric around the body.

HOW IS WEAR ON A WINGSUIT
Wear on wingsuits is a bit heavier than outdoor skydiving and basejumping use. 
For this reason the purpose built indoor suits are made from a heavier grade fabric, to allow a longer life span due to more active use. 
Especially sessions heavy on the use of net, like learning backflying, we recommend using the indoor suits.

IS THERE A DROPZONE NEARBY
Stockholm has several dropzones within an hours drive.

CAN I FLY A TRACKING SUIT INDOOR
We offer tracking coaching for any OnePiece tracksuit of your own choice.
Note: No demo/student suits available, so bring own suits.

Customers wanting to do tracking do first need to demonstrate sufficient skill and control in the normal wingsuit progression, 
before we're able to switch to TrackSuits. 
Our training includes tracking specific progression and exercises aimed at people wanting to increase their skills envelope targeted at basejumping. 

IS THE TUNNEL AVAILABLE FOR COMMERCIAL PROJECTS & FILM PRODUCTIONS
The Indoor Wingsuit tunnel and team FlyLikeBrick are available for commercial film projects, and can house a green-screen backdrop.
The tunnel can be leased for exclusive / closed access as well as training actors and/or models in advanced forms of flying as productions demand. Contact us for details.

DISOBEYING RULES
It’s important to realize the progression system and rules are there for your safety.
Regardless of previous experience outdoors, skills not previously practiced and approved for solo practice by one of our coaches are not allowed. 
Customers ignoring rules and/or showcasing maneuvers not first approved and monitored by our coaches can have their sessions cancelled and forfeit their paid flight time.

Time booked needs to be flown accordingly, per schedule, and can't be transferred to later dates. 
Failure to show up in time or leaving without all sessions flown results in the time labeled ‘flown’ automaticly.

NOISE
The tunnel has a low noise observation deck for visitors. But for those going onto the flight deck and/or into the tunnel, noise protection is strongly advisable.
Earplugs are available for free in various locations inside the building.
Please do not leave used earplugs lying around, and discard them into the trash bins found on all floors after use.

BACK PROTECTION
Once customers fly without the aid of the wire system, we have back protectors available. 
This is mandatory, and an asset should there be any contact with the walls or ceiling.

Indoor Wingsuit has a great safety record, but accidents can happen. 
It’s possible to bring own backprotection. Backplates similar to those used for snowboarding suffice for tunnel use. 
IWF or Team FlyLikeBrick can not be held liable for any injuries sustained before, during or after flying in the tunnel.

GLOVES
As we practice flying with a net on both sides, and walls and floors to possibly touch, we recommend the use of gloves. 
Though not mandatory, it provides a layer of protection and comfort that’s always welcome.
Should you not have gloves yourself, we have gloves available for customers at request.
