Indoor skydiving centers let even those fearful of heights experience the sensation of free fall.


Skydiving centers in the United States typically operate under the iFly label. Like other sports, there are inherent risks to indoor skydiving. Typical risks involve shoulder dislocation and other similar impact injuries. Before you enter the tube, all divers are outfitted with the proper equipment, including a helmet and foam ear plugs.


Upon arrival, the entire family will sign up. After signing in and getting weighed, they meet with their coach. Coaches will run through all of the pertinent details before bringing the group into a training room to watch a video on the correct posture and hand signals to use during flight.


After all the dressing and safety talks are taken care of, it is time to actually fly. Typically, coaches will take each person for four one-minute flights. These give new fliers a chance to get the hang of it and the way it feels to sit inside the wind tube. During your final flight, there is a good chance your instructor might fly with you, taking you higher in the air.


Indoor skydiving is an excellent gateway to true skydiving, especially for people not yet 18. This controlled environment gives first-timers a chance to learn the proper techniques important in a real dive, while also lacking the gravity of literally jumping from a plane.


Take a look on iFly’s website to find out where the nearest indoor skydiving facility is and let loose with the family on daytrip like no other.
