WHERE IS THE WORLD’S BIGGEST INDOOR SKYDIVE CENTER? WHERE IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST VERTICAL WIND TUNNEL?
INDOOR SKYDIVING JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPION KUCZYŃSKA HAS THE ANSWER AND TAKES FLIGHT GRACEFULLY IN MILAN
India, March 23rd, 2017: Acclaimed skydiver Maja Kuczyńska has made a name for herself with stunning choreographed routines, her latest project in the world’s biggest vertical wind tunnel in Italy is the best yet. The Polish teenager started out in the sport aged just 10, drawing on her gymnastics background to float and spin around like a leaf in the wind.
The first Red Bull indoor skydive athlete revealed, “I was 10 when I was in the tunnel for the first time but I remember that I was laughing and grinning the whole time not even focusing on the instructor because I was just so overwhelmed that I was actually flying!”
Using incredible flexibility and abdominal strength Maja performs amazing tricks, many of which inspired by skateboarding, with each movement potentially throwing the athlete off-balance. Her unique talents have seen her become Indoor Skydiving Junior World Champion and earn fourth place in the Open Freestyle category at the 2016 FAI Indoor Skydiving World Cup.
The recently opened Aero Gravity in Milan houses a crystal cylinder measuring eight metres in height which is capable of duplicating the sensations experienced during a jump before the parachute opens. It features six powerful turbines and can simulate a free fall from an airplane at an altitude of 4500 metres with breathtaking 310 kph blasts of air.
Red Bull Athlete Kuczyńska explained, “I’ve always flown in tunnels that were much much smaller than Aero Gravity Milan, now that a tunnel of such dimensions exists I believe it opens up incredible amounts for the sport. I felt like I was tiny inside there, I could go every direction comfortably and not be limited by the caution that usually comes with flying. I am now focusing mostly on improving the dynamic of my flying, to both reflect delicacy and power in my choreographies.”
