An indoor skydiving facility is planned for Middletown, Ohio, according to a February 10, 2014 article in the Middletown Journal-News. A specific location has not been identified, although the Middletown Regional Airport is a top-ranking contender for the facility.
The indoor skydiving facility proposal includes amenities such as conference rooms, a restaurant and office space. The indoor skydiving venue, if located at the regional airport, is the perfect complement to the commercial aviation and flight schools already anchored there. Start Skydiving, one of the top five largest drop zones in the world, operates from the Middletown airport. The proposed facility is one of 15 vertical wind tunnels planned to open in the United States in 2014.
