Experience the incredible rush of freefall without the need to jump out of a plane. With a colossal 120 mph wall of vertical air easily strong enough to support body weight, this is the perfect way to simulate the sensation of skydiving. Begin with a full briefing from a qualified instructor before being kitted out in a specialist flight suit. Then step into the wind tunnel with a qualified instructor for an immense ten minute body flying session. If you're lucky, the instructor will jump onto the air flow to display some amazing freefall acrobatics.
At least one weekday and one weekend date every month throughout the year. The centres close on 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), 10 separate 60 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.
