We are incredibly excited and proud to have been crowned winners of not only the Outstanding Tourism & Experiences Awards, but also the winner of Business of the Year at the 2022 Local Business Awards, Penrith.

Nominated in September, the support from our incredible local community poured in and we were elected finalists in our category.

The Local Business Awards ceremony was held on 26th October, attending with our key employees, we donned our best suits (not flight suits this time) in support of the event and all the other finalists from the region. We were so excited to be announced winners of the Outstanding Tourism & Experiences, and absolutely blown away when we were crowned Business of the Year.

We are so grateful to our community for supporting us. We are always so excited to provide an amazing experience to people across Penrith and beyond! All our staff – instructors, customer service, marketing, IT, and everyone else - are eager to give as many people as they can the power of flight.

“It is so rewarding to see the community recognise our team for the hard work they put in to providing a quality experience to each person through our doors. I am so proud to be a part of the iFLY team, and this award inspires us all to continue striving for excellence in our industry.” -Trinity Carson, iFLY Downunder General Manager.

Since opening in 2014, we have strived to deliver a unique and unforgettable experience to Penrith and further. Receiving these awards is recognition of that dedication and has given us the motivation to continue working as hard as we do.

“Winning these awards would not have been possible without the passion, dedication, and hard work from all the employees and our supporters. We are proud to be part of a team that works so hard and supports each other, each day, to provide an amazing experience to our customers. Speaking on teamwork, it reminds me of a quote said by Hellen Keller “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”. We would like to thank everyone that has voted and continue to support iFLY we are all extremely grateful.” -Barbara McCarthy, iFLY Downunder Head of Sales.

Thank you once again for all your support, iFLY community. We can’t wait to see what the future holds. Here’s to you.
