Apparatus for the artificial production of a slipstream
DE 3430106 A1
In order to effect the artificial production of a slipstream for the purpose of suspending persons in the air, a collapsible and transportable apparatus in the form of a supporting skeleton is used which can be erected on a flat base and has a wind channel in which can be arranged a unit for air acceleration with an assigned flow rectifier. The wind channel is advantageously of cylindrical or frustoconical shape. To protect the hovering persons, the hovering space is limited by nets. One net is arranged above the flow rectifier and a further net above the apparatus as a whole. The net serving as an upper limiting means is arched upwards by the air flow generated, to which end it has a central air-impermeable or sparingly air-permeable layer. For spectators, a stand is arranged around the supporting skeleton which simultaneously serves as a means of access for the persons entering the slipstream.
