DEAR SKYDIVERS AND AVIATION LOVERS!
We are happy to announce that publication of our monography on skydiving will be even better and more scientific!
Special permission on behalf of Czech Technical University and Department of Air transport was granted, and cooperation has been started with VZLU!
"Aerospace Research and Test Establishment (VZLU) is a national centre for research, development and testing in aeronautics and space. The main mission is to generate new knowledge, transfer it into industrial practice and to provide its partners with the maximum support in the development of new products. As a multi-discipline research organisation, VZLU exploits synergic effects and also contributes to progress of automotive, rail, defence, security and power industry and civil engineering. The major multidisciplinary fields include: aerodynamics, structure strength and durability, material and corrosion engineering, composite materials and technologies, and accredited testing."
Starting in 2015, VZLU has expanded its experimenting into the field of skydiving, especially freefall and high performance canopy piloting. Our preliminary fitting tests were successful, and we are now waiting for available slots in the busy schedule of VZLU. Currently it appears that we will be able to start testing in February! YEAH!!!
Here is little sneak peak photo, and we will keep you updated about exciting news in our research!
Stay with us and fly safely ;)
