Strangely, we never ask how long a skydive lasts but this is the opposite at a wind tunnel.
We replicate the skydiving experience and offer flights which are about 1½ times longer than a tandem jump. So each flight is around 60 seconds, often a bit longer but never shorter than 50 seconds.
A double flight is about 120 seconds long. Please remember we are selling the exhilarating Indoor Skydiving experience which should never be measured in terms of time!
It may not sound long but as a first-time flyer it will seem much longer during the experience itself.
Are you kidding us - kids love it here! Seriously, we can fly anyone aged 3 to 103 providing you are in a state of reasonable health and fitness, and can fit into one of our flight suits and helmets.
Flyers under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (over 18 yrs of age) on the day of flight. The parent / guardian will be required to provide a signature for their waiver as well as attend the classroom briefing. If you are bringing a group / party, the organiser can sign on behalf of multiple participants as a guardian.To save time, please complete your waiver prior to arrival. It is particularly important that you take note of the information regarding previously dislocated shoulders.
We have quite a number of regular customers who are disabled and we will do our very best to fly anyone with a disability. This is almost always possible where the disability is physical. Owing to the extra attention normally required we ask that you contact us first so we can discuss your requirements and choose a suitable package. Whilst we cannot guarantee you will fly, we can guarantee that we will try our best to help you fly.If you would like to discuss your specific needs, and how we can help, contact us for a chat.

Groups of this size are rewarded with discounts.Read more about group bookingsPlease note that there is no maximum group size – the more, the merrier.Should your group size exceed 12, however, we will likely divide you into smaller teams so that the experience is maximised.Don’t worry though, we have a free viewing gallery at all locations, so you can watch other members of your group fly.
If you wear glasses, we can provide extra large goggles that fit neatly over your glasses, meaning your sight is not obstructed during your flights. Contact lenses can also be worn under standard goggles but please note, there's always a small risk they may come out.
Firstly, we ask that every flyer completes a waiver before arrival which can be done online here. It is particularly important that you take note of the information regarding previously dislocated shoulders.Please arrive at iFLY comfortably dressed (avoid collars and hoods) and bring a pair of well fitting lace-up trainers. We find that jeans, t-shirt and a pair of skate/running shoes are ideal. If you don't have a pair of lace-up trainers, don't worry, we do have appropriate footwear for hireIf you have long hair we recommend bringing something to tie it up and maybe a brush.You should be prepared to remove all loose items and all items of jewellery before flying.

No, once you have made your reservation, you have paid for your flight experience.However, we do have a number of optional extras that can be purchased on the day of your flight. Many customers ask us why we don’t include certain extras in the basic cost of our flight experiences and it’s a good point. The downside is that including extras would simply add a bit to the cost for everyone coming to fly and we don’t think that’s fair. However if you want to add pictures, videos, additional flights or have a High Flight experience we do charge for them as extras. For more information specifically about our extras please get in touch with us.
Flight sessions involve occasional flash photography (the driver of our wind tunnel will be taking snaps of flyers mid-flight) and occasional strobe lighting.This should not affect your ability to fly or spectate, but please contact us before arrival if you think we should know about any conditions such as epilepsy or seizures. We may be able to adjust our systems to accomodate.
No, it’s just like breathing normally actually…..so there is no specialist breathing equipment required. Just relax and breathing will come naturally.If you do suffer from any breathing difficulties such as Asthma, don’t worry, in most cases you’ll still find flying a comfortable experience and be able to breathe normally. However we do recommend you contact us with any queries so we can offer further advice.
The High Flight is the equivalent of a hot-lap on a track day where instructors will be able to give you a taste of what’s its like to fly like a pro as they take hold of you and fly you around the tunnel, occasionally high up towards the top.iFLY endeavours to offer the High Flight in as many sessions as possible but owing to the specialist training and experience level required, we are unable to guarantee it. Remembering that Indoor Skydiving is a skill based pursuit, we do encourage flyers to be in control of their own experience and to fly independently of their instructor. The High Flight for that reason is an ‘extra’ and not a standard feature of any iFLY experience.Instructors able to offer the High Flight are among the most experienced in the world, undergoing hours of rigorous training before they are licensed* to fly with others. If an instructor with the appropriate license deems he can fly safely with an iFLY customer, and enhance their experience at the same time, then the High Flight will be offered. If you have any questions regarding the High Flight, we urge you to speak to a member of the Flight team in advance of your flight.Due to safety, High Flights are unavailable for those that weigh 118kg+Get in touch with us, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have.*High Flight licenses are issued by the independent governing body of our sport, the International Bodyflight Association (IBA).
