In 2009 Alberto Fuertes, the Managing Director of Madrid Fly won the skydiving World Champion competition. That same year he had the idea of building the largest wind tunnel of Europe in Madrid, the capital of Spain.
In 2010, after visiting and/or collaborating with all the European wind tunnels, Alberto got in touch with KeelWit Technology, who where (and still are) the best team of Spanish engineers that could bring to life the daunting plans that Alberto had in mind for the best European wind tunnel.
KeelWit brought the engineering knowledge, which combined wiht the experience of Isaac Prada y Nogueira acquire at Renault Fórmula 1 and Airbus, made the dream possible.
In 2011, Alberto associated with Jerónimo Rosa, CEO of EYDISA. This company quickly supported and became the largest stakeholder of this ambitious project. Jerónimo´s 32 year experience in the construction industry coupled with the companie´s willingness to expand towards a new market. This combination of interests where the catalysts of the creation of Madrid Fly.
Finally, in April 2011 Madrid Fly was officially established as a company and intensive research and development began.
Thanks to the following three factors, Madrid Fly boasts one of the best wind tunnels in the world:
- The deep understanding of aerodynamics, energy efficiency and heat transfer mechanics provided by Keelwit engineering team.
- The contribution of more than 30 years of experience in the construction bussiness of EYDISA.
- The support of minority investors who make a great effort to make the dream of Madrid Fly possible.
