Frequently Asked Questions
The answers provided below are based on answers previously given by the tour provider to customers’ questions.
How does the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience work?
A:A vertical wind tunnel has fans at the top to draw air through the flight chamber and then push it back down the sides. The air is then compressed & sped up before it reenters the flight chamber causing a smooth column of air that enables you to fly.
How safe is the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:The unique design of the wind tunnel, with its wall-to-wall air column, along with certified and highly-trained instructors, allows you to safely enjoy your flight. Your instructor is with you the entire time regardless of your level of experience.
What is a Wind Tunnel?
A:Very simply, a wind tunnel is a machine that moves a lot of air. A vertical wind tunnel moves air in a vertical column at speeds high enough to keep a person safely floating.
How early should I arrive for the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:It is important that you arrive on time for your scheduled session. Your experience will begin promptly upon your arrival so please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early for your reservation so you have time to check in.
Do I fly alone or with a group during the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:Generally, a group of up to 12 guests fly in each session. Your friends and family will be part of the same group, however, you will fly one at a time in the flight chamber one-on-one with your instructor.
How long is each flight during the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:Each flight within the wind tunnel lasts 60 seconds. The entire iFLY first-time flyer experience takes approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes from start to finish.
Can I bring family/friends to watch, but not participate in the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:If someone chooses to come to watch, he or she is welcome to accompany you through your experience and can watch from the observation area.
Is it scary during the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:Generally, no. There’s no jumping, no falling, and no experience is needed. You simply float on a column of air. There is no sensation of falling or anything that would make you feel motion sickness.
Is it hard to breathe during the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:Not at all. It is the same as if you stick your head out a car window while driving. All you feel is the wind in your face. Just breathe normally, either through your mouth or your nose.
Is the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience appropriate for younger children?
A:Flyers can be as young as 3 years of age and there is no upper age limit. Children under 18 years of age need to have a parent or guardian sign their waiver.
Are there any weight restrictions to participate in the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:Participants must weigh less than 300 pounds. Any guests who weigh between 260 and 300 pounds must notate current weight in the "Special Requirements" box at checkout to avoid delays upon arrival.
How tall do I have to be to participate in the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:There are no height restrictions to fly!
What should I wear for the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:Please wear well-fitting, lace-up sneakers, or running shoes. Wear casual clothes, preferably pants and a shirt without a collar. You will wear your flight suit on top of your clothes. Anyone with long hair should wear it braided and in a low bun.
Can I participate in the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience if I am pregnant?
A:For safety reasons, women who are pregnant should not fly.

Why do I need to wear a flight suit during the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:For safety - the instructors are trained to grasp the handles of your flight suit should you need spotting.
Can I do flips and tricks in the tunnel during the Westchester Indoor Skydiving Experience?
A:The primary concern is for your safety in the flight chamber so the tricks or flips are for experienced flyers only. Some flyers are able to do turns or move around during their first flight. Ask your instructor how to advance your flight skills.
