Awesome Time!

iFly is an amazing experince! You must try it!

I was so excited to try iFly since it opened a while back, and finally got the chance. I had read reviews about it before and wasn't sure what to expect.

The staff was super friendly and made us feel really comfortable with flying. The 1 minutes flys are exhilarating to say the least, lol! I was able to fly without the instructor holding onto me on my first try!

The prices are fair and the photos afterward are hilarious lol. I

Great staff and amazing experience

I am hooked. This is really a blast.

My whole family went for the first time 2 weeks ago (Mom, Dad, and 7 yr. old son). We've been back three times since and will return at least four more times over the next month or so.

The staff are very helpful and really work hard. Without exception, they really try to please. The check in process is very smooth and their explanation of what to expect is very good.

On my second visit I was so proud to have improved to the point t

In my view, the only downside is that their packages are pretty inflexible. I would love to go a lot more often and am willing to shell out a bunch of money up front to buy hours in advance... but they lack any practical plan that meets that need, Bummer, because if they had such a plan, I'd bring 6-8 new friends in every week.

Great Place to Practice Freefall for Skydivers!

That said, the amount of freefall time you get for you $ is a lot more compared to the amount you get on a skydive.

It is a great way to increase your freefall skills in a safer environment than in the sky, which is a great confidence builder.

I went to i FLY SF Bay after my second day off AFF. I got really unstable and lost both of my instructors. My instability caused severe line twist in my parachute. I had to cut away my main and deploy my reserve.

After that, I went wi

I went back again within the month to practice turning, so that I'd feel even more confident with my abilities. I finished AFF within a few days from that. Now, I have my A Lic! Now that I'm flying well on my belly, I would love to return to i FLY to learn how to back fly, sit fly, and fly head down!

Thanks to the staff for all your help!

amazing experience!

iFly is a great way to decide wether or not you would want to do real skydiving, because it shows you just what it's like! The employees are totally helpful and show you all the tricks and it's so much fun!

People Can Fly

I'm an outdoor skydiver with 18 years and 3,500 jumps under my belt. While there is no experience quite like jumping out a plane, iFly SF Bay provides a totally authentic re-creation of the freefall experience. So authentic in fact that outdoor skydivers use facilities like this to train their flying skills for competition. You aren't competitive anymore unless you cross train indoors, it's that good. Any of the flying acrobatics you've seen can be safely learned and practiced indo...view moreors in a totally controlled environment. It's incredibly fun, totally spectator friendly, and accessible by people of all ages from three and up!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Amazing Place

I have over 1300 skydives and I truly love iFlySFBay. I just can't get enough. I've taken many non-skydivers and they to have loved it -- from 3 yrs old to 60+, they all had a great time.

Just book in advance because the weekends are busy. And my recommendation for the first flight is to book for 4 mins of flying. 4 mins of tunnel time is about the same as 6 student skydives of airtime.

Hope to see you there.

So Fun!!

I have been skydiving a few times before and loved it, when I heard about this indoor skydiving I had to try it! It is so much fun, totally similar to the real thing. I was able to improve my flying, with the help of one of the instructors. I can't wait to go back
