Experience two incredible 60 second sessions of free flight
Take to the air and try out some special moves
A truly unforgettable sensation of freefall
No need to jump out of a plane!
Originally developed to study aircraft, the powerful wind tunnel allows participants to experience the true sensation of freefall without the need to plummet from the skies. Kick off with a briefing from a qualified instructor, before being issued with a specialist flight suit, stepping into the wind tunnel and taking to the air for two exhilarating 60 second body flying sessions (in comparison, a skydive from 10,000 feet provides 30 seconds of freefall). Conclude with a debrief and some lucky flyers will even get to enjoy an aerobatic display from their instructor.
Seven days a week throughout the year. The centre is closed on Christmas Day but operates on bank holidays.
Minimum age is four. Under 18's must be accompanied by an adult. Maximum weight 18 stone. Anyone who's reasonably fit, can fly. If you're pregnant, have heart, back or neck problems or have ever dislocated a shoulder, you can't fly.
The tunnel is indoors and isn't affected by the weather.
Expect to be on-site for around one and a half hours, including a 20 minute safety briefing, kit issue (15 minutess), two 60 second body flying sessions and a full debrief.
Numbers on the Day
Training may be shared in a group of up to 12. The flights are held on a one-to-one basis with a fully qualified instructor in the wind tunnel.
Facilities are excellent and make for a good family outing. Spectators can watch the action from the free viewing gallery.
No jewellery or collared shirts. Please wear tight-fitting lace-up trainers (not boots). If suitable footwear isn't worn, it is compulsory to hire trainers from the venue. Jumpsuits and other equipment are provided. Lockers £1.
It is vital to arrive no later than the allocated time on the booking letter. Actual flights occur up to one hour after the allocated booked time to allow for an essential safety briefing before stepping into the tunnel.
