iFLY is an indoor skydiving experience that creates true free fall conditions, just like skydiving, without having to jump out of an airplane. iFLY’s vertical wind tunnel generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air, on which you safely float. There’s no parachute, no jumping, and nothing attaching you to planet Earth. It’s just you and the air, and it’s the most incredible adrenaline rush.
No experience is necessary. Just about anyone can fly, including those with physical disabilities. Children as young as three, to adults as young as 103 have flown with us. There are only a few exceptions–for example, if you’ve dislocated a shoulder or have had a neck injury.
iFLY started in 1998 as SkyVenture, LLC. Once we had developed the technology to create a stable, wall-to-wall cushion of air in a flight chamber, we knew we could offer an incredibly realistic and safe indoor skydiving experience. We opened our first indoor skydiving facility in 1999. Between 1999 and 2005, we opened three more facilities. In 2005, we rebranded ourselves iFLY, maintaining SkyVenture as our design and manufacturing company.
Today, iFLY has 37 locations around the world in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia, and the list continues to grow.

Here’s what you can expect during your experience at iFLY:
ARRIVAL: Plan to arrive an hour before your scheduled flight time.
CHECK IN: Use one of our handy touchscreen kiosks to check-in. If you have not completed your waiver, you will need to do so before flying. Flyers under the age of 18 will need to have a waiver completed by their guardian prior to flying. Once you have checked in and your waiver has been completed one of our friendly flight crew members will assist you in putting on your flight wristband. This means you are ready to fly.
PRE-FLIGHT: After check-in, head to the flight deck viewing area to watch people, just like you, flying.
FLIGHT TRAINING: The certified flight instructor assigned to your class will find you in the viewing area and guide you to the classroom for flight training instruction. During training you will learn proper body position for flying and hand signals the instructors will use while you are flying. Remember, relax and have fun!
GEAR UP: After flight training your instructor will take you to the gear up counter where you will receive your helmet, flight suit and goggles.
FLYING: Your instructor will lead you to the flight chamber and will be with you during the entire flight experience, helping you enter the flight chamber (just lean in) and spotting you the entire time, to help you fly like a superhero.
POST-FLIGHT: Your instructor will lead you out of the flight chamber, you will de-gear and receive your personalized flight certificate. Pictures and videos of your flight will be available for purchase at kiosks near the gear counter.
The entire iFLY experience lasts about 1 hour and 45 minutes and each flight is the equivalent of 1.5 skydives.
