Taking Flight

You’ll first suit up in protective gear (think safety goggles, a helmet, and a bodysuit.) Then, a trained professional will walk you through the basics of safety, technique, and a few necessary hand signals.

Now comes the fun. When it’s your turn to step up to the plate, you’ll launch into a large, transparent chamber along with your trainer. A giant gust of wind thrusts you into the air as you hover, and, with the help of your guide, maneuver your body to perform various tricks and turns.

Starting out with quick, two-to-three minute sessions, you’ll quickly learn how to maintain your balance, spin in circles, and adjust your elevation with just a few small movements.

A friendly trainer is there by your side to guide you through your first few rides until you’re ready to step up your game and fly solo.

Additional Training & Weekly Events

Aside from drop-in flights, iFLY offers a variety of training camps and weekly events for young flyers and newcomers to the sport. Oftentimes you’ll spot veteran outdoor skydivers practicing impressive moves and skills at these events.

You can also take advantage of group and private classes, where personal trainers guide you through more advanced skills. Expect to learn new moves, play games, prepare for competitions, or simply improve your flying skills.
