ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Indoor Skydiving Kick Start

This introduction to Indoor Skydiving gives you two 1 minute 'flights' in a huge vertical wind tunnel, giving you a perfect skydiving simulation in the safest possible environment!

Indoor Skydiving ... is that even possible? The answer is YES ... and it's thrilling fun! Using a wind tunnel that could be used for testing the aerodynamics of an F1 racing car, you will step into the airflow and then you are skydiving .. it's as simple as that. It's an amazing concept that allows you to taste the thrill of free fall in a completely safe environment. This fantastic Discover Indoor Skydiving Kick-Start experience will give you two x 1 minute flights (that's as much freefall as 3 tandem sky dives!) in the wind tunnel where you will get to perfect your basic free fall technique! In each of your one minute flights, you will fall a distance equivalent to 2 miles! An optional DVD is available at the end of your experience to help you remember your day - not that you're at risk of forgetting! Great fun guaranteed.

The wind tunnel is as close a simulation of actual skydiving as can possibly be achieved, and is - quite literally - an absolute blast! As you step into wind that is powerful enough to lift you from solid ground all the way to the top of a 20 foot tunnel, you just straighten your arms and let yourself fall forward into that wind. There will be an instructor present throughout your two Indoor Skydiving 1 minute flights, and he/she will coach and advise you with hand signals, as you bob around on a bed of air, like a cork in water.Indoor skydiving is a unique experience offering you the chance to understand what it is really like to jump out of a plane and free fall. During your 2 minutes of flight you will get the same freefall time of 3 actual skydives, and expert tuition from the professional instructors. After you have mastered a few techniques with the instructor's help you can really appreciate the fun involved with freefall and begin to maneuver yourself around the tunnel.

Flying High!

Brilliant experience and completely different to anything I've done before! The feeling is indescribable and seeing how talented our instructor was in the wind tunnel has made me want to go back and continue earning my wings! The certificate awarded to us at the end was a lovely memento of the memorable day we had. The perfect birthday present for an adrenaline junkie or someone who has always wanted to know what it feels like to fly high!!

Great experience-very short though.

This was my second time at ifly (previously airkix). Aside from the limited availability and having to go at 8 am, we had a great time. Instructors took great care and time with us along with helping a very nervous flyer. Wish we'd have longer in the tunnel for a more reasonable price, or a cheaper add ons. I paid extra £7 to go higher- I personally don't think it was worth it but others did. Fun day would recommend if you haven't previously sky dived!

Had a great time as an office night out. This was my second time trying indoor skydiving and I was certainly more comfortable. 2 minutes is certainly enough time and it seems like a longer experience as you get to watch the other participants while waiting your turn.

Pretty nerve-wracking at first but once you take the plunge and jump in it's an amazing experience. Instructors are fantastic and give you a little show at the end!

Skydiving in a wind tunnel! Amazing. I had the best time and would definitely like to take up more extreme activities - this was the first step toward doing an actual parachute jump!!!

It was an absolutely fabulious experience that I shared with my 7 Year old son. We both thoroughly enjoyed the day. The instructors were excellent in their approach and ability and made a potentially scarry experience for my son a most enjoyable one. Will definately recommend and have done so many times to my friends.
