Trepidation, anticipation, excitement and exhilaration
Perth's new state of the art iFly Indoor Skydiving facility provides the excitement and exhilaration of skydiving with the safety and reliability of an indoor chute.
For some people, skydiving is on their bucket list, but for me the thought of indoor skydiving filled me with fear and trepidation, but as I watched the thrill seekers ahead of me hurl themselves into the powerful wind tunnel, my fluttering feelings of fear turned to anticipation.
I was relieved to see that the chute had a net to stop me plummeting down and an instructor at hand to help me find the optimum position to stay aloft. So with great excitement, I hurled myself into the rushing wind, and my feelings turned to absolute exhilaration.
My second flight was the iFly High experience, which took the adrenaline rush to a whole new level. Paired with the flight instructor the wind speed was ramped up and we went shooting up to the top of the wind tunnel. I can now see how this action sport can become so addictive.
The indoor skydiving experience was founded by 2 ex-SAS soldiers out of their passion for human flight and commitment to create world class skydiving facilities to enable everyone to experience the thrill of skydiving in a safe environment.
IFly caters for people aged 3-103. It's safe for kids, challenging for adults, exciting for teens and realistic for skydivers. In fact these facilities are used by first-time thrill seekers, skydiving enthusiasts and the military for training around the world.
The glass-walled wind tunnel is surrounded by a viewing platform which is great for people like me who needed to see others doing it first to allay my nervousness, but it's also perfect for birthday party and corporate groups to be able to watch their friends and enjoy the excitement.
There are fantastic prices and packages available for individual flyers, birthday parties, return or frequent flyers and corporate groups.
Flights include safety training and instruction and assistance from a qualified flight instructor to optimise the best body position for flying. Flight suits, helmets and goggles are provided.
Whether you're looking for a thrill for yourself, a gift, a party or team, or an experienced skydiver wanting to improve your skills and technique the iFly Centre is the perfect place to enjoy the action sport of skydiving.
