With the help of an instructor, try out different moves
More free flight time than skydiving
An incredible adrenaline rush
Step inside the powerful wind tunnel and experience its incredible aerial capabilities first-hand. Jump onto the airflow for two thrilling 60 second body flying sessions and get a true feel for the sensation of freefall, without having to plummet from an aircraft. Kick off with a full safety briefing before being issued with a specially-designed flight suit in preparation for the session. Next, step into the wind tunnel and let the 120 mph, vertical wall of wind send you upwards, with a fully qualified instructor on hand to offer tips and encouragement at all times. Afterwards, the instructor may hit the airflow and demonstrate some amazing aerial acrobatics. Conclude with a certificate presentation and debrief.
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 minutes), two 60 second body flying sessions each and a full debrief.
Numbers on the Day
Training may be shared in a group of up to 12. All flights are held on a one-to-one basis in the wind tunnel with a fully qualified instructor - you won't jump together, but will watch each other's flights from the gallery.
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.
