Team Austria: Wind tunnel test on the way to Sochi

Together with the Austrian special jumping team, the Nordic Combined squad returned to the RTA Rail Tech Arsenal wind tunnel in Vienna to work extensively on flight and inrun positions. A full day of flying and testing was waiting for Bernhard Gruber and co. after the team arrived straight from a training camp in Ramsau, Austria.

For newbies Sepp Schneider and Mario Seidl, this meant the first test flights in a wind tunnel. In the facility, all weather situations on earth can be programmed within a few seconds - from actic cold to tropical thunderstorms with 60∞C. In contrast to the real flight on a jump hill with about 8 seconds of flight time, the jumpers have the chance to fly two to three minutes and try to work on the comments given by the coaches.

Christoph Bieler: "It was quite windy! (laughs) But even though I have been here before, it's always great to try new things. On the hill, you just have a few seconds to do that, so you can take a couple of things with you after a session in the wind tunnel. A big thank you to the Rail Tech Arsenal for letting us use their faciliies again and again!"
