Wind tunnel WTA-500 Ø 2.5
The wind tunnel WTA-500, is intended for preparation and training of sportsmen-paratroopers or as an extreme attraction.
Developing this sport attraction, our experts used the technology of the wind tunnel, which is used both for testing in automobile and aircraft construction, and for training of professional paratroopers.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
The international experience of training sports teams of paratroopers and airborne troopers shows the wide application of special simulators that create an ascending flow of air for training in controlling the position of the body when performing special exercises.
The necessity of using WTA-500 in modern conditions is determined by:
- Constant complication of parachute-landing equipment and conditions of its application, which entails a significant increase in the terms of training.
- The growth of the cost of using aviation equipment
- The need for the development of initial skills
- Increasing the effectiveness of training and reducing the cost of training.
The basic version of the attraction is a mobile (mounted on a semi-trailer chassis) structure consisting of a semi-trailer chassis (which is the base), a closed flight area (a so-called glass, which is equipped with additional safety features in the form of safety nets and transparent plastic fencing panels), a platform with remote control, mechanical compartment.
In construction of the attraction "WTA-500" it’s used the designed six-blade propeller instead of the aircraft three-bladed propeller. Due to this fact, the air flow turned out to be more even with a noticeable decrease in noise.
The safety of the participants is ensured by a special safety construction which is limiting the flight zone. It is possible to equip the attraction with an additional noise isolation fence.
The purchase is as follows. An agreement is signed, then a prepayment for 70% of the cost of the wind tunnel is made. After signing the acceptance and delivery certificate of the installation the customer pay remained 30% of the cost.
Using of WTA-500 allows:
-To teach free-flight techniques in aerodynamic flow without time restriction
-To provide high physical load on the athlete
-To train the vestibular apparatus
-To train group exercises in aerodynamic flow
-To provide the training of parachutists in conditions that are as close to real
-To monitor the actions of trainees in real time
-To make training at any time, regardless of the weather conditions
The effectiveness of using WTA - 500 in the training of sports teams of paratroopers and airborne troopers is achieved by:
-Significant decrease in the cost of training
-reducing the number of jumps using aviation equipment by 50% or more percent’s
-provision of continuous monitoring of the educational process
WTA - 500 is designed to acquire the theoretical and practical skills of athletes, paratroopers and simply participants in the extreme attraction.
WTA - 500 is used in the following stages of training:
1. Testing the initial skills of behavior in the air stream
2. Learning the basic elements of the jump
3. Conducting the training of athletes in the development of single group jumps
The safety of participants is provided by a plastic "glass" and a grid, which limits the flight zone. The speed of the air flow is monitored by a specially trained specialist.
In the construction of the entertainment installation WTA-500 there is no used the aircraft three-bladed propeller. There is used the screw specially designed for the engine. Due to this fact, the air flow turned out to be more straight with a noticeable decrease in the noise. After all, everyone knows how the aircraft propellers are buzzing. At the airdrome very few people are without a special helmet or headphones. It is also not an electric motor, but a high-power diesel engine that makes the entire installation mobile and non-volatile. Exhaust gas emissions occur above the flight zone. The attraction is very mobile and easy to install. For safety reasons, beginners can be in the stream only in the presence of an instructor.
The paid flight time is divided into sessions for 3 or 2 minutes.
It should be noted that the whole process (including training, equipment, training, etc.)
It will take 10-20 minutes even if only the minimum reserved time is 2 minutes.
Only the net flight time is paid. Time of preparation and equipment is not necessary to pay.
Necessary flight conditions:
The weight of the competitor must be between 20 and 120 kg.
Good physical shape with no health problems.
Persons under the age of 14 are necessarily accompanied by an adult.
Persons under the influence of alcohol and drug intoxication are not allowed to fly!
Clothes should be light, comfortable and do not constrain movements. Any sports shoes with an elastic sole must be fitted tightly to the foot.
Flight is associated with a certain risk. As at any sport the injuries are possible. Each participant of the flight takes responsibility for the damage to health (stretching, bruises and other injuries) to himself.
- Before the flight, mandatory instruction and training warm-up is conducted.
- In the process of training, the skills of safe flight and falling are acquired.
- It is necessary to extract the contents of pockets, remove jewelry, watches, cell phones, etc.
- We provide the necessary equipment: Flight suit, Helmet, Gloves.
- Additional protection in the form of knee pads and elbow pads is available at will.
- You can come with your ammunition.
- An experienced instructor will provide support at the beginning of the flight.
- The minimum flight time is 3 minutes.
- The maximum flight time is limited only by the physical preparation of the participant.

EXAMPLES FOR THE SIMULATOR CONTAINER
(May differ from country of use
Diesel fuel 75 l / hour (1 dollars/ liter) = 75 dollars
Oil is changed twice a year (winter - summer) 50l - 200 dollars (50x2-100l = 400 dollars, 2 oil filters x 8 dollars = 16 dollars
The service staff fee - 1000 dollars х 3 people = 3,000 dollars
Current expenses - 100 dollars a month. (repair of overalls, replacement of cables, etc.)
