THE SPORT OF FLYING

Learn to Fly

Flying is just like any sport or activity, the more you do it the better you get!

 

As a beginner flyer, you’ll first learn how to maintain a stable body flying position. No tricks quite yet, but as you keep flying, you’ll get the skills to fly around the wind tunnel by moving forward and back, flying side to side, flying up and down, and turning.

 

Keep flying and you can learn:

  • Back flying
  • Transitions
  • Rolls
  • Spins
  • Flips and more!

 

As you gain new skills you can fly with friends in the tunnel and participate in flying games. You can even compete in flying competitions hosted by iFLY.
