Imagine a wind tunnel that could be used for testing the aerodynamics of an F1 racing car, turn it upright, jump onto the airflow and you are skydiving. It's a proven concept operating in several countries to the benefit of the skydiving community and anyone else who wishes to taste the thrill of freefall.
After check-in you'll be kitted up into your flight gear, followed by a short class with a briefing given by your expert instructor. You and your group will enter the tunnel and take it in turns to fly. You each get two shared flights of one minute each - that's about the same as three tandem skydives.
Please note: Participants will only be able to fly together subject to weight allowance and similar ability. Paired flyers must be no more than 13Kg (2 stone) difference in weight and no more than 30cm (12 inches) difference in height. Flying participants together is at the instructor’s discretion and cannot be guaranteed. If you are unable to fly in pairs then each person will receive solo flight(s) only. The flight duration will remain at 2 minutes and will be split between the participants.
You must be reasonably fit to participate in this activity and there is a maximum weight restriction of 105kg (16.5st). Participants over this weight may be able to fly but may have a different flight experience. Minimum height is 107cm (3ft 6 in).
No qualifications or experience is necessary.
The minimum age is 5 years old (under 18's must be accompanied by an adult).
This experience is available Wednesday to Sunday, throughout the year subject to availability and change.
