Flight instructor Chris Gray (cq, left) gives a thumbs up to Rocky Mountain News reporter Darrell Blair (cq, right) as he attains the proper body position during a classroom session before heading into a skydiving simulator at Skyventure Colorado on Monday March 13, 2006. Hand signals are invaluable in the wind tunnel as the noise generated doesn't allow for verbal communication. The Lone Tree, Co. company uses four 300 horsepower fans and state-of -the art technology to replicate a freefall skydiving experience inside a wind tunnel. The newer technology employed at the site makes it easier and safer for first timers to learn to control their movements while suspended in midair. An "Intro to Flight" experience is $48 during peak hours and $44 during off-peak hours which includes a class and two one minute flights. (MARC PISCOTTY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) CQ
