Adventure Club: iFly – Indoor Skydiving – Saturday, 19 October 2019

Activity # 19-6
Activity Title: iFly Surfers Paradise
Overview: Indoor skydiving is the simulation of true free fall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. The invention of modern wind tunnels has given skydivers a consistent and practical way to develop and hone skills that usually require jumping from a plane.

Additionally, the increase in availability of wind tunnels has created a whole new genre of sport – bodyflight! It is one of the most exciting and fastest growing sports in the world. There’s no parachute, no jumping and nothing attaching you to planet Earth! It’s just you, the air and an incredible adrenaline rush.
