Receive a briefing and tuition from a qualified instructor
Feel the rush of freefall without jumping from a plane!
Share 10 minutes of flying time
Perfect for the whole family (experience is designed for two adults and three children), body flying provides the unrivalled thrill of freefall without the need to plummet from a plane! Start with a full safety briefing before each being issued with a specialist flight suit to prepare for the flights. Once ready, step into the mighty wind tunnel with a qualified instructor and share 10 exhilarating minutes of body flying between you, experiencing at least four times the amount of freefall than that of a 10,000 feet skydive. In addition to watching each other fly, your instructor may even jump on the airflow and demonstrate some amazing freefall acrobatics. Finish the session with a debrief, feet firmly on the ground!
Available seven days a week throughout the year. The centre is closed on Christmas Day but operates on bank holidays.
