Preparing for flight in the wind tunnel was simple:
1. Turn off the wind tunnel
2. Open the door
3. Place the kite in the center of the wind tunnel
4. Attach the flying line to the floor of the wind tunnel using tape
An anemometer was inside the rear of the wind tunnel to display the wind speed.
On Tuesday, March 8, 2016 Glenn Davison, Robert Hellstrom, and Susan Savill used the wind tunnel at Bridgewater State University to test-fly a variety of kites at very low wind speeds.
An anemometer displayed the wind speed
Angle of flight from the horizon was measured with a protractor
Oscillations per minute were counted
