    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.

    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.
