Indoor Skydiving and Virtual Reality Flight in Milton Keynes
A lovely Driving Experiences Experience located in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.
Experience the magical sensation of flying (no planes required) with a hair-raising body flying experience at iFly Milton Keynes. Get the session off to a flying start by hopping into a flight suit and entering the specially designed vertical wind tunnel, which simulates the conditions of a real life skydive. With guidance from a skilled professional, learn the basics of body flying and if feeling confident, attempt a few more advanced manoeuvres. Enjoy two standard 60 second flights, before strapping on a specialised virtual reality helmet for a third simulated flight, which sees the participant leap from an aeroplane 12,000 feet above the ground. Take in the picturesque views of the virtual countryside as you drift back down to earth.
Available all year round except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. A £6 surcharge to fly between 10.30 – 7.30pm applies at weekends, bank holidays and weekdays during school holidays, payable to the venue on the day.
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), three 60 second body flying sessions and a full debrief.
Training may be shared in a group of up to 13. The flights are held on a one-to-one basis with a fully qualified instructor in the wind tunnel.
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.
Minimum age is 14. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Maximum weight 18 stone. Anyone who’s reasonably fit, can fly. If pregnant, have heart, back or neck problems or have ever dislocated a shoulder, you can’t fly.
It is vital to arrive no later than the allocated time printed on the 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.
