The Experience
The entire first time flight experiences take roughly 1-2 hours. After arriving and checking in, you take part in a personalized training session before gearing up to fly. During your flights your instructor teaches you to fly your body. You take turns flying one at a time with other first time flyers.

Pricing Coming Soon

For first time flights we recommend between 2 and 6 minutes of flight time per person. This gives you enough time to understand the basics of flying your body and is plenty of time for a great experience. For more pricing information, read our pricing article.


The facility will feature 14 foot flight chambers side by side. The creator, Buzz Fink, is also the owner of Skydive San Diego. The company under the name of Airborne America plans to build the two custom designed wind tunnels and Fink states that a prototype was built and that the machines will feature better efficiency than some existing modern wind tunnels.

The facility is estimated to run $10 million with a massive floor plan of 21,368-square-feet. Recent news articles claim speeds of up to 180 miles per hour. Fink was a previous owner of SkyVenture Orlando, now known as iFly Orlando, before selling his portion.

This tunnel along with Fliteshop out in Scottsdale, AZ are the first two announced tunnels announced for US construction that are not of the iFLY branding. Both facilities will break ground in 2015. Another iFLY location is looking to open in San Diego in 2015 as well: iFLY San Diego
