So easy a baby could do it! Great fun to watch! Even better to dare yourself and try it.

More like floating than falling!

First flight with an instructor. After skydiving class. Second flight on your own.

EXACT TIME SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY DEPENDING ON ATTENDANCE

Indoor skydiving is the simulation of true freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. The invention of modern wind tunnels has given skydivers a consistent and practical way to develop and hone skills that usually require jumping from a plane. Additionally, the increase in availability of wind tunnels has created a whole new genre of sport – bodyflight. It is one of the most exciting and fastest growing sports in the world. Learn more about the sport and how you can get involved!

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 reenters the flight chamber.

The result: a smooth column of air that enables you to fly.
