What Can I Expect
Learn to body-fly on these unique iFLY experiences available at iFLY centres in Milton Keynes, Manchester and Basingstoke! We are sure you will have never experienced anything like iFLY before as you jump into the vertical wind tunnel for a very uplifting sensation!
All budding indoor skydivers start their iFLY session with a video briefing from the team on what to expect during your time in the wind tunnel. This is followed by a demonstration and practice of freefall parachuting and body-flying techniques from fully qualified and downright talented members of the iFLY indoor skydiving 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.
Fully experienced iFLY instructors will accompany you inside the tunnel, to ensure you make and maintain the correct body positions for flying. They will also teach you some basic moves, so fear not, you're in safe hands as you make your first 'skydive', iFLY-style!
Before you know it, you will have found your wings and will be manoeuvring around the airchamber - you may even be able to learn some tricks whilst enjoying your flight in any one of three iFLY skydiving chambers located in Manchester city centre, Milton Keynes's Xscape, or Basingstoke!
