REVIEW - Taking Flight at iFLY Indoor Skydiving


I've long been curious about iFLY, but a little uncertain about it at the same time. I realize that my self-induced limitations are a bit unfounded at times, but the concept of indoor skydiving unnerved me. Call me crazy, but I feel rather comfortable with solid ground under my feet.

As much as I'd like to be a thrill-seeking adventurer, I'm unfortunately a wee bit of a chicken. What I didn't realize is that this is a good reason why iFLY is a perfect fit for me! As the company describes their concept: "indoor skydiving is the simulation of true freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. It’s where the dream of flight becomes a reality".

I am fully aware that there is no chance that I will ever skydive in this lifetime... and I am completely okay with that. However, it's nice to know that an option exists for people like me to still get an understanding of the experience. iFLY makes that possible with a vertical wind tunnel technology that really is quite fascinating! Learn more about it here. The science behind the concept provides a great basis for STEM learning, which makes for unique and engaging educational programs as well. Learning a bit about how it works before I went set me at ease a bit, but I soon pondered a new concern I hadn't realized until I arrived.
