Learn to body-fly on these unique Airkix Indoor Skydiving experiences available at Milton Keynes and Manchester! We are sure you will have never experienced anything like this before as you take a leap into the vertical wind tunnel for a very uplifting experience!
All budding indoor skydivers start their session with a video briefing on what to expect, followed by the demonstration and practice of freefall parachuting and body-flying techniques from fully qualified and downright talented members of the indoor skydive team who, quite frankly, make it all look too easy.
Once kitted out in your flying suit, helmet and goggles, you will enter the purpose-built windtunnel...and as you assume a horizontal flying position with your legs bent at the knees and arms out in front of you, your legs magically lift from under you and somehow you're flying in this crazy indoor chamber of fast-flowing upwards air.
Airkix skydiving instructors will accompany you inside the flying chamber to ensure you make and maintain the correct body positions for flying before teaching you some basic moves, so fear not you're in safe hands as you make your first 'skydive'! Before you know it, you will have found your wings and will be manoeuvring around the airchamber - with a little practice you might even be able to learn some tricks!

My son and daughter had an indoor skydiving experience in Milton Keynes. The experience was an absolute hit! They both loved it and look forward to going back again. I was able to watch and thoroughly enjoyed every minute, it far exceeded our expectations. There was a very polite, pleasant person taking everyone into the tunnel one at a time after a brief demo video - he was encouraging and enthusiastic. They were both given an option at the end to fly with him to the top of the tunnel - they were both thrilled. Such an experience!

A first class booking experience and if the Airkix wind tunnel experience I have booked for my two grandchildren this Christmas is as good as the service I have received I will be very pleased.

I bought the indoor skydiving as a 40th birthday present for my husband and I'm sure he's going to love it. I shopped around the best deal and your price for the activity was competitive and I was amazed at the next day delivery.

Customer Review from Feefo, 20 Oct 2012
Service rating - excellent: I always use this company when ordering an experience. I've found them really good value for money and very easy to book with. Very prompt service with the vouchers impressed with the blue envelopes. Previously ordered the gift box which was also good. Haven't booked the experience yet but previous ones have been excellent
