Kids and Teens Can Soar Like a Superhero at iFLY’s Flight School!


So, you want to skydive but the thought of jumping out of a plane scares you? Trust us, the dynamos at Fort Lauderdale PR firm Durée & Company get it. Luckily at iFLY, there is no jumping out of plane! It’s just you lying on a cushion of air learning how to manipulate your body to fly. It’s an incredible adrenaline rush.

The best part about iFLY? Almost anyone can fly! Whether you’re 3 or 103, you can experience the feeling of free fall without the worries that come along with actual skydiving. For children and teens interested in the sport (yes, it is a sport!), iFLY offers its Flight School program, weekly one-on-one, indoor skydiving coaching sessions that takes place at both their Fort Lauderdale and Orlando locations. Students learn a progression of flying skills in a fun group setting led by a flight instructor who is highly trained in safety standards and certified by the International Bodyflight Association (IBA).

Each session is two hours long and includes a team briefing, warm-up with stretching, and five minutes of flight time. Instead of a parachute, there is a large glass tunnel with a massive wind generator that allows you to fly. It takes the element of fear away, while still giving you an adventurous and exhilarating experience. Plus, each student receives exclusive Flight School member discounts on personal flight gear.

Flight School students can showcase their skills at the Quarterly Flight School Competition – an event that takes place four times a year. Winners from each location advance to iFLY’s Annual Flight School Regional Competition!

Indoor Skydiving is an addictive sport and can easily become every kid and teens’ newest obsession. If you’ve ever seen the instructors do flips and tricks in the tunnel, you know what we mean. There’s nothing like the thrill of indoor skydiving, it will lift you off your feet…literally!

Grab Your Cape and Fly on #NationalRideTheWindDay


iFly Ride With the Wind DayAs publicists, we are always on the lookout for a good “hook” to get our clients noticed. When we identified the hashtag holiday #NationalRideTheWindDay, we knew we landed a windfall for our clients at iFLY Indoor Skydiving.

With both the Fort Lauderdale and Orlando iFLY wind tunnels packed in our proverbial “parachute,” the dynamos at Fort Lauderdale PR firm Durée & Company floated the idea for iFLY to make an event out of #NationalRideTheWindDay and 25% off for first-time flyers on #NationalRideTheWindDay was born.

Created to celebrate the anniversary of the first man-powered flight, #NationalRideTheWindDay was intended to be some high-flying fun for the whole family. At iFLY, first-time flyers, aged three to 103, simply lay on a cushion of air while an IBA-certified IFLY instructor helps them control their bodies to experience true human flight in a safe, comfortable and fun environment – without having to jump out of an airplane.

iFLY Indoor Skydiving opened its very first facility in Orlando in 1999. iFLY Orlando spent the better part of nearly two decades as that city’s most popular non-theme park attraction. It was only fitting that when iFLY debuted its newest facility and the very first to feature dual, side-by-side flight chambers that it be in Orlando as well. iFLY Fort Lauderdale was the company’s 27th wind tunnel that opened in February 2017.

iFLY Indoor Skydiving was founded by a man who wanted to share his love of skydiving with his family. Durée & Company was founded by a woman who was born to share his story with the world. As a result of this perfect fit, on Wednesday, August 23, 2017, first-time flyers can enjoy 25% off the entire #NationalRideTheWindDay and become part of the eight million people iFLY has safely flown.

Grab your cape and fly on #NationalRideTheWindDay. To save 25% off, visit www.iflyworld.com and use promo code Summer25. Geronimo!
