They are part hummingbird, part fighter jet. They soar through the wind with a combination of pageantry and power, pushing their bodies to the limits. Meet the athletes of Team iFLY.
Flying is like many other sports such as skateboarding, skiing and swimming in that there are different disciplines, or “types” of ways to enjoy the sport. For example swimming and flying both have a discipline called “freestyle.”
Indoor skydiving competitions provide a platform for passionate flyers to test their skills in various disciplines, both individually and in teams. These multi-day events are held at select wind tunnels throughout the U.S. making them accessible to as many athletes and spectators as possible.
