On April 14th, 2016 Brazil celebrated the opening of the second iFLY wind tunnel in Sao Paulo. This tunnel follows the recent opening of iFLY Brasilia in February of this year. Both wind tunnels are the newest 12 foot model from SkyVenture. The tunnel opening was celebrated with festivities and flying by the staff.
When SkyVenture originally announced this location, it was slated to be a 14 foot tunnel. Since that time it seems plans have changed. With that same announcement was an additional tunnel in Sao Paulo except it was to be a 16 foot tunnel. New information points to this 3rd Brazilian wind tunnel opening in Rio de Janeiro.
We are looking forward to see the size of this 3rd tunnel and we expect it to be larger than these two tunnels. A 14 foot or larger would certainly be greatly appreciated by the passionate Brazilian skydiving community.
