The origin of Madrid Fly takes place in the year 2009 when the spanish Alberto Fuertes, three-time world champion in skydiving and runner-up in indoor skydiving, has the great idea of building the largest wind tunnel in Europe in Madrid, seeing that this last discipline is still unknown in our country.
In 2010, after having visited all the wind tunnels in Europe and working as an instructor and/or operations manager in some of them, he began to collect information on what he considered could be improved. Meanwhile, he sought out the team of Spanish engineers that are now part of Madrid Fly, KeelWit Technology, to design solutions applicable to each of the problems detected.
Thus, thanks to the experience of the entire team and especially the co-founder of Madrid Fly, Isaac Prada and Nogueira obtained from their work at Renault Formula 1 and Airbus, it has been possible to build the best wind tunnel in Europe, which is equipped with technology 100% Spanish.
In 2011, Jerónimo Rosa, founder and CEO of EYDISA (Estructuras y Diseño S.A.), and since then majority investor, joined this project, who never hesitated to show his support from the beginning of this ambitious project. His entrepreneurial profile and his more than 32 years of experience in the world of construction meant that Madrid Fly obtained the last push necessary for its materialization in the search for diversification of its business.
Finally, in April 2011, Madrid Fly was officially established and the research, development and innovation work began, which has led to the filing of several patents linked to our wind tunnel.
The participation of EYDISA, a leading company in the field of calculation and execution of reinforced concrete structures, responsible for the execution of more than one million square meters of buildings, has been vital for the realization of Madrid Fly, a work of great technical complexity.
Madrid Fly is the first facility to see the light of this new and innovative EYDISA business line, which has also had the support of a small group of private investors for the construction of what is already considered the best free fall simulator in Europe.
