I have flown at this tunnel a couple times now. Instructors are very knowledgeable and really care about helping you learn to fly better. The only thing I dont like about this tunnel is that they generally reserve weekends for first time flyers. This makes it difficult for experienced flyers/skydivers to fly in the tunnel if you work during the week. This may be a corporate decision not made by the staff at the tunnel. It would be nice if they reserved just 1 or 2 hours on Saturday and Sunday for experienced flyers. Other than that, great tunnel.

I called and spoke with a worker whose name was Jackie and reserved a flight session for today (Sunday) at 1:30 pm back on Tuesday and when I showed up, they didn’t have my reservation booked. They even admitted to having problems with their call center. The front desk wasn’t accommodating for a mistake that THEY made and said that the best they could do was put my group (of 3 ppl!!) in at 5:30 instead. I’m furious and will be telling EVERYONE how poor in customer service and accommodation this experience was for us. Thanks for nothing!!!!!!

This is a must for everyone and all ages! Me and my wife of 16 years did this to celebrate our anniversary and it was totally worth it! Braxton was our instructor and he was amazing, super calm and really encouraging!! I would highly recommend him if u fly and especially if u bring little ones to fly!

I am currently an AFP skydiving student and decided iFly (Concord) was the place to practice before my first skydive. I received hands down the best instruction from my instructors Travis and Shawn during my time at the facility. I learned more than I ever thought I would in such a short amount of time and I thank the both of them for giving me the best experience possible at iFly. They were both extremely knowledgeable and skilled in their methods of teaching, I highly recommend to anyone who comes to iFly (Concord) to ask by name for either Travis or Shawn. I will most defiantly be coming back again soon for more top notch coaching.

Travis F. Is my coach. Travis does a great job of asking impactful questions while getting to know me prior to our tunnel time.
Travis also gives very specific feedback before, during and after each interaction.
Lastly, Travis always checks to see if I can feel/ sense my development during our debrief.
The customer service agents at check in are very nice and the 3 or 4 other instructors I’ve seen/met are all friendly and extremely knowledgable and effective in flying and coaching all levels of flight.

Our group enjoyed our flights, however the overall experience was disappointing . I had planned a party group to celebrate a birthday. I scheduled a time for our group and even asked for a specific instructor they assured me we could have. When we arrived the instructor I requested was not there. Our group was mixed in with other people, not by ourselves. I felt the experience was unprofessional and misleading. I wouldn't recommend anyone doing a party because it nothing special for your group. And I wouldnt request an instructor as it doesnt guarantee they will be there. They dont explain this to you. Not worth the price.

Took the grandsons here for their 1st experience and it was a hit!! The smiles on their faces as they "flew" were priceless! The only negative, pricing is steep, (thus the 4 star review rather than a 5 star review) and even though there was a sign offering an extra flight time for $20, they would not let us take advantage of this offer because of lack of time available due to being very booked. Understandable, but disappointing. But the whole experience was really amazing and the boys had the time of their lives. The flight instructor was awesome and looked like he had as much fun as the boys! Highly recommend this experience.
