iFLY Fort Lauderdale is now delivering the dream of flight to adventure seekers in South Florida. People of all ages and abilities can experience human flight in a safe, comfortable and fun environment – without having to jump out of an airplane. Each indoor skydiving facility is a marvel of engineering that replicates the sensation of freefall, creating conditions that allow people to fly on a smooth cushion of air. With the help of iFLY-certified flight instructors, customers learn to fly, control their bodies in the air and experience true human flight.

Since 1998, more than eight million customers worldwide have experienced human flight at iFLY in a variety of ways: as a fun excursion with family and friends, a student on an educational Science, Technology and Math (S.T.E.M.) field trip, a professional skydiver or member of the military for training, and as a corporate customer looking for a unique team building activity. Thanks to iFLY, flying is finally available to everyone.

To prepare for their flight experience, customers complete a training class guided by one of iFLY’s flight and safety instructors. They then are equipped with flight gear, including goggles, helmet and flight suit, and enter the flight chamber by leaning forward into a smooth cushion of air, with a flight instructor at their side.

All flight packages include training, flight gear, and flight time with an International Bodyflight Association (IBA) certified instructor. The IBA established the gold standard for training and safety standards for indoor skydiving instructors. All iFLY instructors meet or exceed IBA standards.
