Is indoor skydiving safe?

Safety is the top priority. The unique wall-to-wall air column design, along with certified and highly-trained instructors, ensures a secure and enjoyable flight experience. Regardless of your level of experience, a dedicated flight instructor is right there with you throughout your flight.

How does indoor skydiving work?

A vertical wind tunnel utilizes fans at the top to pull air through the flight chamber, which is then pushed down the sides through Return Air Towers. This process passes the air through an inlet contractor, compressing and accelerating it before it reenters the flight chamber. The outcome is a steady column of air that allows you to achieve flight.

Why is a flight suit required?

The instructors use the handles on your flight suit to provide assistance as needed.

Can I fly with my friends and family members?

In most sessions, multiple people take fly together. Your friends and family will share the same group, but you'll fly individually in the flight chamber, guided one-on-one by your instructor. As you gain more flight experience, you can join others with similar skills in the tunnel. If someone wishes to watch, they are welcome to accompany you during your experience and observe from the designated area.
