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.


First Time Flyers:
2 Minutes: 40 GBP
2 Minutes Off Peak: 30 GBP
4 Minutes: 70 GBP
10 Minutes (Shared by up to 5 People): 160 GBP

Sport Flyers:

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.

Flown 132 minutes todate
Review Date: January 5, 2017
5/5 Stars

My wonderful wife Glen Mills who will be 83 in February has to date flown 132 minutes in the wind tunnel at iFLY Manchester.
Glen has Multiple Sclerosis along with a number of health issues
but this does not stop her enjoying her once a week visit to fly.
The pleasure this gives her and the feeling of being free is immense.
The instructors are so patient and the support from the staff is wonderful.
So you can imagine we meet many people from all walks of life,from first time fliers to return flyers as well as pros along with sky divers polishing their skills.
To meet amputees, blind People and sufferers of cerebral palsy who also fly in the tunnel is absolutely wonderful.
The starting age is 3 years old with no upper limit.
So why not give it a go and find a new experience.
From her loving husband
