PRAGUE, TATRALANDIA, BERLIN, AND MADRID
The original Hurricane Factory wind tunnel is in Prague. It was built by the Czech company Strojírna Litvínov as their first “aerodynamic tunnel”. The project is a success – the wind tunnel’s popularity and flight hours increase every year.
In 2013 after the completion of the Prague wind tunnel, another Hurricane Factory opened in Liptov, Slovakia. The tunnel is part of a large holiday resort with water park, surrounded by the Low and High Tatras and other majestic mountains. Hence the wind tunnel’s name: Tatralandia.
In 2017, Hurricane Factory opened two more wind tunnels. In Berlin and Madrid. These wind tunnels have more modern technology and design, and are even bigger. The circular glass flight chamber in the Prague and Slovak wind tunnels has a 4.3m diameter. The flight chamber of the two new wind tunnels has a 5.2m diameter (17ft).
WE ORGANISE INDOOR SKYDIVING EVENTS AND COMPETITIONS
Hurricane Factory is more than a wind tunnel operator. In 2013, we organised the Knights of Prague 4way Dynamic international competition. It contributed to standards for indoor skydiving competitions around the world, and also encouraged dynamic flying as a new discipline in this sport.
Another big event organised by Hurricane Factory was the 1st FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championships in 2015. It was the first official wind tunnel world championships organised by the FAI World Air Sports Federation. We are proud that Hurricane Factory representatives and instructors participated in all five disciplines – Formation Skydiving, Vertical Formation Skydiving, Freestyle, Dynamic 4way, and 2way.
Hurricane Factory supports many flyers and teams. Some who learned to fly in our wind tunnels are now world leaders. Others simply fly because they enjoy it or want to experience something new and unique.
