Indoor Skydiving

Teen Club Field Trip

Interactive Presentation

STEM concepts related to the wind tunnel, including:

      • What is Engineering? How did engineers work together to create this technology?
      • What are the differences between solids and fluids?
      • What forces are at work on objects in the wind tunnel?
      • Students observe a ball demonstration, observing the differences between the balls and how this affects their flight in the wind tunnel

Lab Activity

      • Students plan and carry out an investigation about parachutes
      • Students identify one parachute variable to experiment with
      • They use stopwatches, measuring tapes, and a scale to measure their parachutes
      • Students record their data and share conclusions with the class

Training & Safety

      • Each student will be trained by flight instructors who are certified to IBA flight standards
      • Students will learn the correct body position, hand signals and safety rules
      • Students will be outfitted in flight suits, safety goggles, ear plugs and helmets
      • Each person will fly one-on-one with an instructor at all times
      • iFLY has flown over 6 million people worldwide, from ages 3 to 103 & we have a 100% commitment to safety

Flying

      • Each student will fly for 1 minute in the tunnel–the equivalent of 1 1/2 skydives, twice.
