iFLY Milton Keynes (Airkix) Overview
If you’re an adrenaline junkie looking for your next fix, or simply someone seeking a unique adventure, indoor skydiving at iFLY Milton Keynes is the perfect activity for you. Since opening in 2015, iFLY has welcomed thrill-seekers from all over the UK.
What is indoor skydiving, you may ask? Indoor skydiving is a simulation of outdoor skydiving, but instead of jumping out of a plane, flyers enter a vertical wind tunnel where a powerful vertical wind simulates the feeling of freefall. With iFLY Milton Keynes, you can experience the thrill of skydiving without the height, and without the need for a parachute.
iFLY Milton Keynes Wind Tunnel
iFLY Milton Keynes originally opened as Airkix in 2005 as the first-ever public vertical wind tunnel in the UK. After many years of operation and successfully launching the sport of indoor skydiving in the UK, the tunnel rebranded under the world-renowned iFLY brand in November 2016. More recently, the tunnel has also been refurbished, updating the old polygon glass flight chamber with a modern, smooth, 360 degree tunnel.
The wind tunnel at iFLY Milton Keynes is 14ft (4.3m) in diameter and powered by four massive fans, which create wind speeds of up to 165mph (266 km/h). The fans are mounted at the top of the wind tunnel to pull air through the flight chamber and generate a cushion of air that keeps the flyers suspended. The wind speeds are carefully calibrated by a tunnel operator according to the flyer's size, weight, and skill level.
Safety protocols and precautions are top-notch at iFLY. Flyers are given safety instructions and a full briefing by a trained instructor before the flight. The instructor will remain with the flyer at all times the wind tunnel is in operation, ensuring a fun and safe experience. Several testimonials from satisfied customers attest to iFLY's commitment to safety and customer satisfaction.

iFLY Milton Keynes is located at Xscape, an entertainment complex with a wide range of activities, making it the perfect location for a day out with friends and family.

What's it Like to Do Indoor Skydiving at Xscape?
The indoor skydiving experience starts with a training session led by an instructor. The instructor will demonstrate the proper body position and hand signals while inside the wind tunnel. Once trained, flyers suit up in their flight suits, helmets, and goggles. They then enter the wind tunnel, where the fun begins.
As you step into the wind tunnel, you can feel the rush of air against your body, as if you were falling through the sky. The feeling of weightlessness is almost surreal as you lift off the ground. The sensation is almost identical to skydiving, but without the risk of jumping out of a plane at thousands of feet in the air.
You'll be guided by an expert instructor who will help you adjust your body to stay in the right position. The wind tunnel is set up to mimic free-fall conditions, giving you the full skydiving effect. It's an experience that will leave you feeling empowered, energized, and full of adrenaline.
