Sharpen your skills in the Wind Tunnel before or during the AFF Course – although tunnel time is not a substitute for required skydives, ten minutes in the tunnel enhances your skills to a degree that might otherwise take 10 skydives to accomplish. The tunnel is an excellent option to advance your flying skills before or during your AFF Course. Reserve time in advance at the Iflyworld Orlando Wind Tunnel.
