As a flyer, you attend a 15-minute training class where body control techniques and safety procedures are discussed. The next step is equipment preparation for your indoor skydiving flight. Flyers receive a suit, helmet, and other safety equipment. Following a short review of the basics, a group of five flyers then enters the wind tunnel with their instructor. Participants take turns flying during a 15-minute session. You have about three minutes of freefall time in our wind tunnel, an experience you do not want to miss!

Classes start every 30 minutes, on the hour and half hour. You can make reservations online or we accept walk in’s. The process will take about an hour from the start of class until you leave the tunnel to take your gear off. Generally, it is better to fly earlier in the day if possible. Flyers should be in good physical condition especially no prior neck, back or shoulder injuries. Minors (under 18) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at least 21 years old during the training class. Small children must weigh 40 pounds and be mature enough to follow the instructor’s directions. Please refer to the chart in the pull-down menu below for the maximum weight guidelines.
What Should I Wear?
Socks and soft-soled lace up shoes are a must. No sandals or open toed shoes are allowed. We do provide shoes if necessary. What you shouldn’t wear is more important. Before you fly, all pockets must be empty and all jewelry must be removed. Rings that are too tight to be removed are OK small stud earrings are OK.
Can I Watch?
YES! We have an observation deck. Anyone can come in and watch for FREE! We encourage you to spend some time watching a flight session. Watching others fly is a great way to pick up a few tips before you fly.
Can I Do Tricks?
Yes, with experience you can learn tricks. Flying is an athletic activity that takes time and practice to master. Learning new skills makes it fun and keeps you coming back for more. During your first flight your instructor will help you with basic stability and maybe some turns or altitude control.”

Please Note: The weight limits help us provide a quality flight session.

We have different limits for men and women because differences in build and weight distribution make men and women fly differently.
