Now humans can fly with the help of indoor skydiving wind tunnels. Good training for future empowerment.

They have two of these in the Phoenix area. One in Scottsdale and the other is in Eloy, AZ ( a MAJOR sky diving destination). Trust me, it is not as easy as she makes it look!

^^ What Ace said! I've been in one twice and it amazes me how "easy" the instructors fly around inside there with you. Mine could do a lot of the shit in the video like walking up the walls and stopping on a dime when flying. Really wild stuff. Thanks for posting!

She is the best by far I have ever seen, but then again, she is the champ! They have a flyaway in Las Vegas where I made a fool of myself many years ago. As I recall, it was made from a DC 3 propeller, a 600 hp electric motor and a big grate. What really gets me is that most people wear a baggy flight suit which makes you look like Rocky the flying squirrel and she is in spandex.

Not say, but lets be glad most people are wearing the flight suits. You REALLY don't want to see me in spandex. ;) Just saying. LOL

I'm thinking that skin-tight Spandex flight suits only work on tall but very thin people, like the gymnast in the video. A frictional force (from the wind) versus weight issue.

The rest of us need more surface area to catch the wind to stay comfortably aloft. A bunch of oversized people beached on the lower grate isn't much fun.

But there is also Raa's argument, which is probably even more important for some of us. <grin>

Far more importantly, when are we going to see someone in there wearing a high quality Supergirl costume?

I suspect that capes would not be allowed in these things, for safety/liability reasons. Edna Mode did make some valid points!

Too bad... it would be great chance to watch someone perfect the use of capes and skirts in such a wind. Or fail epically while trying. Either way, very entertaining.

Perhaps some things are best left to our imagination. Still... seems like a lost opportunity. I'm betting Sarge's uniforms would do better than most. Although I doubt they came with a "won't blow off in flight" guarantee.

I don't have any capes. Unless really short they cover up too much. Grin.

Here's another super in training. I'm sure they start with gymnastics, so the flying in wind tunnel is similar to floor tumbling with lift.
Could imagine a swarm of bottled up velorians in a tube doing warmups before the launch door opens and they fly out into battle. Supers could also (carefullly) generate laser light effects maybe wearing safety goggles to protect the wind tunnel

a wingsuit or cape would probably increase the weight limit for flyers. I think they are worried that any loose clothing or personal items would turn into Foreign Objects or Debris and damage the equipment.

Understand completely. Even without a cape, the billowing of a short skirt (with hands on hem to hold it more or less down) would create a huge amount of lift that would send them soaring. To avoid hitting the top, they'd have to release the skirt to spill the lift and let the hem rise over their waist as they fell to grab another "skirt-full" and soar upward again. <Sigh>

Obviously, I'm overthinking this. <grin>

As a proud owner of one of Sarge's Supersuits, I think it would do just fine in the wind tunnel. At worst, it might rip the skirt. Wind speed is most likely between 80 and 120 mph. Drag goes up a little over V squared. There is a big difference
Between: 8x8=64
And: 12x12=144
More than twice the force at 120 as there is at 80 mph.

Here is an idea. Let's start a go fund me site to see if we can get this gal to fly in one of Sarge's Supersuits.
