iFLY San Diego Oceanside Overview
Do you dream of experiencing the thrill of skydiving, but aren't quite ready to jump from a plane? Don't worry, you're not alone! Indoor skydiving has become an increasingly popular alternative, giving thrill-seekers the adrenaline rush of freefalling without the risk of jumping from an airplane. One of the newest and most exciting wind tunnels in California is iFLY San Diego Oceanside.
iFLY San Diego Oceanside (or iFLY Oceanside) is a 14-foot (4.3 m) recirculating tunnel that opened in Oceanside, California in August 2017. This facility features the ever-so-popular Generation 7 model from iFLY Tunnel Systems (formerly, SkyVenture), known around the world for its smooth airflow and efficient operation.
The Indoor Skydiving Experience
When you arrive at iFLY San Diego Oceanside, you'll check in and have a chance to watch other flyers before heading to a briefing with your instructor. They will show you the correct body position and give you a few hand signals to follow during your flight. After that, you'll gear up with a jumpsuit, helmet, goggles, and earplugs before entering the wind tunnel. Above the tunnel there are 4 electric fans, which produce wind speeds of up to 165 mph – enough to lift you off the ground and keep you suspended in the air, simulating a freefall experience.
The spacious, 14 ft diameter, 55 ft tall wind tunnel allows you to learn how to move your body around the tunnel, starting with subtle body movements to move from left to right or spin around.
If your package includes a high flight your instructor will also take you to explore the heights of the tunnel – an experience for the brave-hearted!
What Does it Feel Like to Try Indoor Skydiving?
Indoor skydiving is an incredibly unique and exhilarating experience. The feeling you get when the wind lifts you off the ground is indescribable. It's like nothing else you will ever have experienced before. The wind tunnel provides the perfect amount of pressure to let you fly with ease, and you'll be amazed at how much control you have over your movements. You can even practice performing mid-air pirouettes and flips.

Greener Energy at iFLY San Diego Oceanside
iFLY San Diego Oceanside has made headlines over the years for its green initiatives. It's no surprise that the four powerful fans that are used to keep the air flowing through the tunnel can burn through a lot of energy in a short space of time. That's why, in 2017, iFLY announced that they would be installing 2 megawatt hours of energy storage at a few of their locations, including iFLY San Diego Oceanside.
“The savings implications and scalability of this energy storage partner is exciting, and we’re looking forward to seeing its impact long-term,” said Todd Shallan, iFLY Indoor Skydiving COO.
In 2019 they also announced the installation of a Tesla Powerpack, comprised of 16 Tesla batteries. This Powerpack charges at low-demand periods of the day and then feeds power back into the grid at high-demand periods, relieving some of the burden placed on the power grid and therefore, reducing the environmental impact energy consumption.
