A wind tunnel with two 120 second sessions of free flight
Try out different moves and positions with an instructor's help
Fly at Basingstoke, Milton Keynes or Manchester
It's an unforgettable feeling
Experience the incredible thrill of skydiving from an indoor environment. With a 120 mph wall of air, the wind tunnel can support body weight with ease, giving a true sensation of freefall without the need to jump out of an aircraft. Begin with a full safety briefing from an instructor before being issued a specialist flight suit and stepping into the wind tunnel. Once lifted into the air, the instructor will provide guidance through two sensational 120 second sessions of body flying. For some lucky people, the instructor will hop onto the air flow and demonstrate some impressive freefall acrobatics.
At least one weekday and one weekend date every month throughout the year. The centres close Christmas Day but operate 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 120 second body flying sessions 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.
Facilities at Xscape (Milton Keynes) and the Chill Factore (Manchester) are excellent and make for a good family day out. Spectators can watch the action from the free viewing gallery.
