Receive expert training from a fully qualified instructor
Enjoy two 60 second body flying sessions each
Takes place after school during term time
This junior body flying experience in Basingstoke is perfect for any youngster who's partial to a bit of daredevilry. Begin with a full body flying briefing before being kitted out in a specialist flight suit in preparation for the flight. Next, step into the 120 mph wind tunnel for two exhilarating 60 second body flying sessions each (this is twice as much freefall time than that of a 10,000 feet skydive) and experience the intense rush of freefall with an instructor on hand throughout to offer tips and guidance. An incredible experience that sweeps you off your feet!
Available weekdays from 3pm - 5.30pm during term time and school summer holidays. Not available during bank holidays, Easter, Christmas or half term holidays.
Minimum age is four, maximum age is 16. 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.
