iFLY, new indoor skydiving facility, opens in Colorado Springs
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Colorado Springs is home to a new indoor skydiving facility with a state-of-the-art wind tunnel. iFLY offers a safe flying experience through a 14-foot flight chamber designed to serve a range of flyers.
The facility was opened by three Air Force Academy cadets and will be used for training for current cadets.
"This is basically a prep course for when they do their actually free fall sky diving. Just about all the cadets go through what we call AM 490 which is a free fall skydiving class and they get training in here for body positioning, safety reasons, that type of thing before they ever have to jump out of an airplane. It serves as a great training tool for what they have to do out there," said Korky von Kessel one of the owners.
The experience is for flyers of all skill levels and ages between three and 103.
The facility was first announced last year. There are more than 80 locations worldwide.
