Q: Is it scary?
No… SkyVenture Is NOT scary. There is no feeling of falling and you do not jump into the air. You will feel like you are floating. The instructor will be there with you at all times.
Q: Is it safe?
Yes, and a flight instructor is ALWAYS present.
Q: Do I have to jump?
No, you DO NOT jump. The instructor will direct you to the flight chamber door where you will lean into the air flow and be lifted up with the instructors help.
Q: Is it like real skydiving?
The experience is amazingly realistic. It is so realistic that most skydiving teams from around the world train in SkyVenture wind tunnels. Feel free to come by anytime and watch them train in the wind tunnel from the observation area.

Tricks and flips are done by experienced flyers. We do offer training programs and personalized coaching for return flyers that will develop your skills so that you can do many exciting stunts in the tunnel.

You can purchase a video on DVD of your flight experience. One video will capture your entire flight session, giving you a memory to last a lifetime.

You will be part of the same group (flight classes are up to 12 people). Non-experienced flyers are not able to fly with each other.
