About AERODIUM Technologies
Jean St. Germain founded AERODIUM in Canada in 1979 by building the first vertical wind tunnel for human flight. The company was acquired by AERODIUM Latvia in 2008 with the current headquarters in Riga, Latvia. Today they are the only company that manufactures a full range of tunnel types – open flow, wall-to-wall (open flow), recirculating, and custom design - all of which have been successfully built in various locations around the world.
In addition to traditional tunnel installations, AERODIUM has created a market for wind tunnel rentals. These applications are perfect for marketing events as well as shows and performances. Highlights include:
