Enjoy two sensational 60 second bodyflying sessions
Experience the incredible feeling of freefall
Flights run at either Basingstoke, Milton Keynes or Manchester
During term time, after school
Initially used to test the aerodynamics of race cars, these powerful wind tunnels have been tilted upright to create the thrilling concept of body flying. With an incredible 120 mph wall of air, the wind tunnel is easily strong enough to hold human weight, creating the unique sensation of freefall without the need to plummet from the sky. Begin with a safety briefing from a fully qualified instructor before being issued your flight suits. Then step into the wind tunnel for two exhilarating 60 second sessions of body flying. If you're lucky, your instructor will jump on the flow and demonstrate some sensational aerial gymnastics.
Weekdays from 3pm - 5.30pm during term time and school summer holidays. Not available during 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.

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 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.
