Try out some aerial acrobatics with the help of an instructor
Even more free flight time than a traditional skydive
No need to jump from a plane!
The wind tunnel is a force to be reckoned with - originally used to test the aerodynamics of aeroplanes, the tunnel can easily support human body weight, creating the unique sensation of freefall without having to head to the skies. Kick off with a full safety briefing before being kitted out in a flight suit and stepping into the wind tunnel. Once ready, experience two thrilling 60 second body flying sessions with your instructor on hand throughout to offer tips and encouragement. Finish with a debrief and for some flyers, the instructor even jumps onto the airflow to demonstrate some serious aerial gymnastics!
Available 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 printed on your 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.
