The Definitive List of Indoor Skydiving in the USA

American Vertical Wind Tunnels by Name, Type and Location

Update: Tunnel construction has been going crazy over the last few months. For the most up-to-date information, visit Indoor Skydiving Source. (There's a handy list of tunnels under construction, too.)

The good ol’ USA boasts the cheapest, most plentiful skydiving in the world. Unsurprisingly, it’s also home to the largest number of vertical wind tunnels.

About this List

The facilities listed below are commercial (specifically: non-military). They are permanent structures, as opposed to pop-up, mobile versions that move around to events and rental locations, and the list gives the closest major cities and attractions to each tunnel.

To help more advanced skydivers make an educated choice, the list below also gives the tunnel type, size (in diameter), circulation method and airflow style.
