Have always wondered what it feels like to skydive but don’t have the guts to jump out of a plane? Well, iFLY has the solution for you! Feel your body floating above a wind tunnel that simulates the thrill of weightlessness that skydivers enjoy when they fall through the air.
In the heart of Queenstown, enjoy an indoor skydiving experience that replicates the conditions of freefalling without getting anywhere near a plane or parachute. iFLY Queenstown’s vertical wind tunnel mimics the freefall wind that makes skydiving possible. Indoor bodyflight is a new and exciting sport that you are sure to fall in love with! Experience the thrill of weightlessly tearing through the sky, without any of the risks or weather concerns.
Before you simulate floating through the sky, you’ll register at reception and sign a waiver. During a training class, iFLY’s friendly, experienced professional instructors will run you through all the basics: how to hold your body while flying, hand signals, and safety procedure. You will then be fitted into a flight suit, gloves, goggles and a helmet.
When you’re ready to catch some serious air, enter the wind tunnel area with the instructor. The airstream safely lifts you off your feet, with your highly trained instructors close by to assist you. You’ll get to try floating and spinning weightlessly in the air, simulating the feeling of freefalling from a plane. As you advance your bodyflight skills, you can learn to use your body to move in the airflow, completely under your own control, like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. This deal gets you three sessions in the wind tunnel and the more you fly, the better you get. During these sessions, you will get to learn more moves and feel your confidence really soar.
So how does it work?
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 (RATs). The air is ‘turned’ from the RATs into the bottom of the tunnel (plenum) and back up toward the flight chamber through an inlet contractor.The inlet contractor reduces the space the air can travel in, thus compressing and speeding up the air before it re-enters the flight chamber. The result: a smooth column of air that enables you to fly.
IMPORTANT: You will have to present yourself at the reception 1 hour before your booked flight time.
