This consists of a large treadmill and a huge fan (wind tunnel). Plane starts taking off the tread mill and gets airborne at right speed. A large fan provides the necessary air flow. Speed of fan and treadmill is computer controlled. Landing is also achieved in similar manner. This way one can "fly like a bird"in their garage.

       Pretty sure the whole plane/treadmill debate means the treadmill isn't needed at all.

       True. Innitially I was thinking of training /simulation, thats why treadmill was included.
