Get set to Fly at Melbourne’s New Indoor Skydiving Wind Tunnel
Ever wanted to experience the adrenaline of the freefall you get when you skydive, but too scared to actually jump out of an aeroplane? iFLY has the answer! Get set to be blown away by the new indoor skydiving experience in Melbourne where kids as young as 3 years old can fly!
Indoor Skydiving Melbourne: Fly without jumping out of a plane
iFLY is a new 15 million dollar facility that welcomes flyers of all abilities; from beginners who want to experience the thrill, to skydivers who want to practice new flying techniques.
Former Australian freestyle skydiving champion and CEO of iFLY Australia, Nir Davidson is behind the idea and says you don’t have to be fit or fearless, with specialist instructors on hand to guide users through the process.
“The goal of iFLY is to get people of all ages and abilities up in the air and having a great time, including those who may be unable to participate in traditional skydiving. We’ve had schools coming in for unique science excursions, hen’s and bucks parties, corporate events, and children’s birthday parties, but mostly it’s parents looking for a novel experience for their kids.”
“I was a professional skydiver and I wanted to make the feeling of jumping out of a plane accessible for everyone. What we do is mimic skydiving so if you’re falling out of an aeroplane at 200km/h we mimic that sensation but within a glass tube,” said Nir.
Kids can fly too
iFLY welcomes those from 3 years to 103 years! For parents with little ones full of adrenaline this indoor skydiving experience could be the perfect gift!
