    How long is the "freefall"?

      It's a joint flight so you're holding hands the whole time afaik. I wouldn't expect more than a few mins in the booth

        When I did this a few years back, I started with the instructor and also got a little bit of time (~30 seconds) to do what I wanted on my own without him helping/with me.
        As for how long it is, it's about 1-3 minutes per person. I would do it again if I had the time and I do recommend it.

          Compared to standard skydiving it's a lot cheaper and less prep work. I don't know how the pros afford it

    This is crazy expensive. I did in the USA, cost me around $40 USD for 5mins and I thought that was expensive. It took me about 2 or 3 mins to get my head around how to do it. It's harder than it looks. Even after 5 minutes I was pretty sh!t.

    I saw this advertised on tv, it said $99 for 60 seconds. I almost died when I saw the price.

    Each flight within the wind tunnel lasts 60 seconds. However, total flight length depends on the package that you choose. When jumping out of an airplane, the free fall portion lasts approx. 45 seconds. If you reserve a package that contains 2 flights, you will have 2 turns in the wind tunnel with an instructor lasting 60 seconds each. Some of our packages include double-length flights which lasts double the time at a reduced cost. The entire iFLY first-time flyer experience takes approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes from start to finish.

    Any idea why it's so expensive for 60 seconds in the wind tunnel? (the stuff outside the wind tunnel will naturally add to it, but i'm sure not that much and if they really wanted to streamline i'm sure they could)

    Isn't it essentially a sunk cost once they've invested in the machine?

      Because people will pay this price and it gets the best return for the owner of the business?
      I guess there’s a 1 to 1 ratio of instructors to participants when you’re flying and the insurance and operational costs would be substantial. Still seems like a license to print money though

      How do you suppose they pay for the machine, power, and rent? It's been there for years now, they are probably still paying off the tunnel.

  •  

    Just out of curiosity don't groupons/scoopons usually have a better 'introductory first time customer deal' for this sort of stuff or is it the same?

    I generally find the online group deals for first time customers heaps better than what the operators offer direct but not sure about these ifly guys never tried it.

    It's also kids friendly. 60 seconds flight time. Safety lesson, gears (helmet, glasses etc) hiring. There are lots of optional extra. e.g. you pay more if you want to be taken to the top of the wind tunnel.
