Let us help make your dreams of flight a reality. We have collected together answers to common questions that should help you choose a package and plan your visit.  If you have already booked then please see our on the day tips.

If you need anything else then please contact us.


Strangely nobody wonders how long a skydive lasts, unlike the wind tunnel flight. We offer you the same feeling of free fall as during a parachute jump for one and a half times longer. Each free fall lasts 1 minute, often longer but never less than 50 seconds. A session like a kick-start therefore lasts 2 minutes. Remember that we offer you the exhilarating opportunity to fly, which cannot be measured in time !

It may seem short but believe us once in the wind tunnel it will seem much longer.


We can fly anyone who is reasonably fit, from 5 years old, weighing less than 115kg and as long as we can provide you a helmet and a suit in your size.


It's easy :

  • Comfortable clothes (jeans and t-shirt will be perfect)
  • Sports shoes with laces
  • Bring an elastic band if you have long hair


First, we ask all our customers to complete a declaration of risk before they arrive. It is especially important that you are aware of the risks regarding dislocated shoulders.

If you booked your flight with one of our partners and not at iFLY France, we ask you to bring with you the original voucher from the partner company.

Please arrive at iFLY wearing comfortable clothes (avoid collars and hoodies) and bring a pair of sneakers/trainers.

From experience, the best attire is jeans, a t-shirt and sports shoes. If you do not have shoes with laces, we will lend you some.

If you have long hair, bring a hair elastic (no plastic or metal clips) to tie your hair up with and possibly a hairbrush.

We have lockers on site; however, we recommend that you leave any valuables at home. Be prepared to remove any jewellery and accessories before the flight.


Anyone in good physical shape can fly. Our weight limit is 115 kg.
Please see the list of contraindications below before booking. If you feel concerned by one of them, simply contact us and we will discuss it, we will always do our best to make you fly.

You can practice indoor skydiving if you:

  • Do not weigh more than 115kg
  • Are not younger than 5 years old
  • Are NOT pregnant
  • Have never dislocated your shoulder
  • NOT under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • DO NOT have a cast on.
  • Have signed parental authorization (if under 18 years old)
  • Have signed our declaration of risks


Anyone reasonably fit can fly from the age of 5. If you have had neck, back or heart problems in the past you should seek advice from your doctor before flying.

If you ever had a shoulder dislocation, you should not fly.  

For any other questions or additional details please contact us.

We have many disabled clients and we always do our best to fly everyone, regardless of disability. It's almost always possible. However according to your handicap, we must pay you special attention. That's why we ask you to contact us first so that we can discuss your condition and find a solution to get you flying.

Even if we cannot guarantee you will be able to fly, we promise to do everything possible to help you live this unforgettable experience.

If you want to discuss your particular needs, and how we can meet them, please contact us.


We ask all our clients to complete a risk statement prior to their arrival and pay particular attention to the clauses concerning the dislocated shoulders. Once the form is completed, your risk statement is taken into account.

No. Once you have made your reservation, you have paid for the complete adventure. However, we offer several extras that you can buy the same day. Customers ask us why we do not include some extras in our offers and that's a good question. The concern is that if we included extras, the price would go up for everyone, including those who just want to fly. However, if you want additional photos, videos, free falls or our Fly Up (vertical take off), you can add them on the day.

The locker to drop your stuff is free. But we recommend that you leave your valuables at home.

For more information on extras contact us.


During your flight session, the wind tunnel driver can use a flash to take pictures of you.

This should not bother you, either during your flight nor as a spectator. Contact us before arriving if you want to warn us of certain conditions like epilepsy or convulsions. We may be able to adapt for you.


No, you can breathe normally, no need for an oxygen mask. Relax and breathe.
Even if you have breathing difficulties such as asthma do not worry, most of the time everything will be fine.

If you need more information or want advice do not hesitate to contact us.


The Fly Up (or vertical take off) is a bit like being the passenger of a race car. Some instructors can give you the experience of the sensation of falling like a professional. They will hold you and spiral you up and down at high speed, if and only if you wish. iFLY would like to be able to offer the Fly Up in all sessions but it depends on the level of training and experience required for the instructors and we cannot guarantee it.

Considering that indoor freefall is an exciting sport, we encourage you to learn to fly by yourself rather than being assisted by your instructor. That's why the Fly Up remains an extra.

The instructors who can offer you the Fly Up are part of the elite. Many rigorous training hours are required before graduating * to be allowed to do this with a client. If your instructor has the skills and can improve your experience, he will offer you the Fly Up. If you have any questions, contact us, we will be happy to answer all your questions.

 * The right to do Fly Ups are awarded by an independent body called the IBA (International Bodyflight Association).


We organize regular training sessions, camps and events designed for beginners, experienced or athletes at all iFLY wind tunnels.


The technology used is simple, safe and efficient. The wind tunnel recirculates air into a flight chamber. To enter the flight room, go to the door and lay on the air until you feel lifted. Congratulations you are flying !

Your instructor will help you find a stable free fall position before teaching you the basic movements. Moves such as up, down, forwards, backwards or even turning are very easy to master, so you will quickly learn new tricks.


iFLY is one of those places where dreams come true. That's right, you will learn to fly ! Get ready to be carried in a column of air that replicates the sensation of free fall ! Fun, chills and safety are waiting for you.

It’s difficult to describe how incredible flying is, so we suggest you take a look at our pictures, videos and read our recent comments to judge for yourself what a great sport flying is.
