Frequently Asked Questions
The answers provided below are based on answers previously given by the tour provider to customers’ questions.
Q:How does the Loudoun 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.
Q:How safe is the Loudoun 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.
Q: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.
Q:How early should I arrive for the Loudoun 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.
Q:Do I fly alone or with a group during the Loudoun 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.
Q:How long is each flight during the Loudoun 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.
Q:Can I bring family/friends to watch, but not participate in the Loudoun 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.
Q:Is it scary during the Loudoun 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.
Q:Is it hard to breathe during the Loudoun 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.
Q:Is the Loudoun 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.
