The Experience

Anything you'd like to know before your first flight?

High Flights are included in each first time experience. During the High flight, guests are able to fly higher and faster with their instructor than they would fly on their own. The high flight occurs during the last 15-20 seconds of the guest’s final flight.

We welcome flyers from 3 to 103. If you have reasonable health and fitness you can fly. But do check the criteria below before you book. We’ll do everything we can to help you fly because our goal is to deliver the dream of flight to everyone!
There are a few exceptions:

  • Flyers must be over 3 years of age or older.
  • Participants must weigh less than 250 lbs.
  • Women who are pregnant may not fly.
  • Folks with recent back, neck and heart problems should check with a doctor before flying.
  • iFLY recommends people with prior shoulder dislocations DO NOT FLY!

If you have any concerns or questions about whether or not you can fly, contact us. Everyone who flys must complete a Flight Waiver, which contains further details.

All first-time flyers are required to take the training class. You’ll get a lot of important and helpful information as well as some pre-flight practice of your flying position.

Yes, feel free to eat before your scheduled flight session. You won’t get any feeling of motion sickness, nausea, or dropping feeling in your stomach.

Yes. We have larger goggles that fit over eyeglasses.

Yes. You should remove any items that might flap around or become loose, such as earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, rings, and hair accessories. In addition, you should remove everything from your pockets. We do have lockers for your use, but we recommend that you leave anything valuable at home as we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen property.

Our primary concern is for your safety in the flight chamber so the tricks or flips are done by experienced flyers only. Some flyers are able to do turns, move up and down, and forward and backward during their first flight. Be sure to ask your instructor how to advance your flight skills.

The instructors are trained to grasp the handles of your flight suit should you need spotting.

Please wear well-fitting, lace-up sneakers, or running shoes. Other shoes are not suitable. Wear casual clothes, preferably pants and a shirt without a collar. You won’t have to change out of these clothes—you’ll put your flight suit on over your street clothes.

The iFLY experience lasts approximately an hour in total. This will cover your check-in time, the training session, your flight time, and time after your flight to remove gear and talk to your instructor about progressing. Save time by completing your waiver ahead of time.

Guests should arrive at their scheduled reservation time. This means that flyers need not to arrive before their scheduled time, but not later than 10 minutes after.
We generally fly several people in each session. Your friends and family will be part of the same group, however you will fly one at a time in the flight chamber one-on-one with your instructor. Once you have gained more flight experience then you will be able to fly with others of the same skill level in the tunnel. If someone chooses to come to watch, he or she is welcome to accompany you through your experience and can watch from the observation area.
Participants must weigh less than 230 pounds if under 6 feet tall, or less than 250 pounds if over 6 feet tall.

Flyers can be as young as 3 years of age and there is no upper age limit. Children under 18 years of age need to have a parent or guardian sign their waiver. It can be signed here.

Not at all. It is the same as if you stick your head out a car window while driving. All you feel is the wind in your face. Just breathe normally, either through your mouth or your nose.
Each flight within the wind tunnel lasts 60 seconds. However, total flight length depends on the package that you choose. When jumping out of an airplane, the free fall portion lasts approx. 45 seconds. If you reserve a package that contains 2 flights, you will have 2 turns in the wind tunnel with an instructor lasting 60 seconds each. Some of our packages include double-length flights which lasts double the time at a reduced cost. The entire iFLY first-time flyer experience takes approx. 1 hour from start to finish.
Generally, no. There’s no jumping, no falling, and no experience is needed. You simply float on a column of air. There is no sensation of falling or anything that would make you feel motion sickness.
Yes, your safety is our primary concern. Our unique design with its wall-to-wall air column, along with our certified and highly-trained instructors, allows you to safely enjoy your flight session. Your flight instructor is with you through your entire flight experience regardless of your level of experience.

The Sport of Indoor Skydiving

Ready to dive into the exciting world of indoor skydiving?
Yes, there are. The International Bodyflight Association (IBA) has some excellent video tutorials. The IBA is the association that trains and accredits our instructors.

A vertical wind tunnel has fans at the top to draw air through the flight chamber and then push it back down the sides through Return Air Towers. That leads to an inlet contractor that compresses & speeds up the air before it reenters the flight chamber. The result: a smooth column of air that enables you to fly.

Competitive indoor skydiving, also known as Bodyflight, shares many of the disciplines of competitive skydiving, such as formation skydiving and freestyle skydiving. Generally, athletes compete to successfully complete a certain number of maneuvers in an allotted amount of time. Athletes can compete as teams, working to complete maneuvers and grips, or as individuals. Each performance is recorded and judged by a panel of experts. If you’re interested, our instructors can help you improve your flying skills and take you to the next level of indoor skydiving.
Very simply, a wind tunnel is a machine that moves a lot of air. A vertical wind tunnel, which is what we use at iFLY, moves air in a vertical column at speeds high enough to keep a person safely floating.

Reservations & Booking

Can we clear up any questions you might have about booking?

iFLY offers various packages but each First-Time Flyer package includes your training session, use of all the flight gear, your flight time in the tunnel, hands on personal assistance from your instructor and a personalized flight certificate.

We suggest that you make a flight reservation in advance. Due to the popularity of indoor skydiving, some sessions sell out well in advance.
