This is possibly the closest one can get to the childhood dreams of flying by merely flapping your arms. The big difference here though: you can only fly downwards...

You mean, you hone your "flight"-controlling skills in a wind tunnel? Sounds like heaps of fun, though
However, would flying in a wind tunnel be cheaper than a real free-fall jump? A wind tunnel tends to be an increadibly expensive piece of kit, plus they require heaps of kilowatthours of electricity to blow that wind so fast as if you were doing free-fall. Of course it will normally be safer to train in a wind tunnel than in a real jump, as like you said landing is guaranteed at the end of every single jump...
What I would REALLY like to do one day is fly on one of those vertical blowers they sometimes have on a well-assorted theme park or fair grounds. Two counter-rotating fans blowing upwards...
