Today, every unique body flight position is a category or discipline of skydiving. Each category has rules for competition that can be judged. To compete at the highest levels within each discipline requires training in the wind tunnel.
The luxury of indoor skydive training is it is more time efficient (no riding in the airplane to altitude, no need to pack parachutes). Teams are able to fly together for two minutes (this is the equivalent of two skydives. A skydive usually lasts for one minute). Step out of the tunnel, review their technique with a coach and step back into the tunnel. This controlled environment increases the learning curve dramatically!
We have been twice now and absolutely love it and are already planning our next family flight! Andy, Derek, and all of the staff have been amazing. They are excellent with both kids and adults, and our 4 year old daughter can't get enough! The facility is top notch, and they ensure you have a safe and REALLY fun time. You can tell everyone loves what they do, and it more than their job - it is their passion. I would HIGHLY recommend this for kids and families, and they even offer birthday party packages.
