iFLY Basingstoke Indoor Skydiving Experience

iFLY Basingstoke Indoor Skydiving Experience

star-5
Arrive at iFLY Basingstoke and safely float in an 800-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air commonly used by professional skydivers without having to jump from a plane. Just about anyone can fly and no experience is necessary. Once inside the flight chamber, a tunnel operator slowly increases the wind speed until you and your instructor are airborne. Feel the adrenaline rush as you float at wind speeds reaching 130 to 175 mph (209 to 282 kph). The stable wall-to-wall airflow keeps you from falling off the column of air and your instructor is on hand at all times to guide you. The entire indoor skydiving experience takes about 90 minutes from start to finish. Each session includes up to 6 people, but you fly one-on-one with your instructor twice - the same freefall time as three tandem skydives!
