iFLY Westchester – New York Overview


Looking for a thrill that's not quite as scary as jumping out of an airplane at 10,000 feet? Look no further than iFLY Westchester, the premier indoor skydiving facility in the New York area. Located in Ridge Hill Shopping Center, just off the Sprain Brook Parkway, iFLY Westchester offers a state-of-the-art wind tunnel that simulates the sensation of skydiving without the need for an actual parachute.

About iFLY Westchester

iFLY Westchester, also known as iFLY NYC is a 14-foot (4.3 m) recirculating wind tunnel that opened in 2015 in Yonkers, New York (Westchester Couty). This state-of-the-art indoor skydiving facility was the first wind tunnel in the state of New York. It was joined by a nearby New Jersey tunnel, iFLY Paramus, in 2018, which sits just on the other side of the Hudson River, but iFLY Westchester remains the only tunnel in New York at the time of writing (though the upcoming iFLY Long Island, scheduled to open in 2023, may soon change that).

The Generation 6 SkyVenture model wind tunnel used at iFLY Westchester is a recirculating wind tunnel, which means that the air is constantly being recycled within the tunnel itself. This method provides a more controlled experience than other types of wind tunnels and is not affected by weather conditions outside the facility, allowing it to stay in operation all year round. The result is a sensation that closely approximates the sensation of actual skydiving, without the inherent risks.

The iFLY Westchester Experience

Upon arrival, you'll have to sign a waiver before being fitted for your flight gear. You'll be provided with a jumpsuit, goggles, helmet, and earplugs. Once you're suited and booted, you'll be given a briefing by a qualified IBA instructor where you'll learn about safety measures, as we'll skydiving basics and hand signals for communication inside the tunnel.

Once you're ready to go you'll be taken through to the wind tunnel where you get to experience the incredible feeling of freefall! Flights last approximately 60 seconds, which may sound like a short amount of time but we can assure you it isn't! Especially when you consider that the freefall portion of a regular skydive usually lasts around 45 seconds.

How many flights you do depends on the package you choose.

This was a thoroughly unique and enjoyable experience. Todd Bourque was my instructor. Former Army guy with tons of jumps in his past. Even though he was teaching a beginner--me--I never felt talked down to. Todd couldn't have been clearer in his instructions. I went into the chamber with confidence. I was surprised at how long the flights felt, because it's an intense experience. The first flight was much better than I had anticipated (I was worried about my shoulders.) The second flight was even better and smoother. And by the third flight, I was relaxing and feeling great! Everyone was supportive, with high-fives from strangers. What a great atmosphere and what a unique sensory experience. Thanks, Todd and iFly!

Make sure you adjust for traffic because if you miss your time slot they will tell you to get there as soon as possible but when you get there they will change your flight time and blame you. Very unprofessional staff.

Took three of my grands there Aug,2016 for the first time . I love that every thing was organized and on time. They got a taste of flight school with the briefing/instructional class they had to take. They suited up. that was easy. My only complaint was after paying extra for the full helmets they did not have one large enough for one of my young people which kept her taking part of the 2nd entry time because of the forced air. I think that everyone should have the full helmet anyway to really enjoy it. It's different and they enjoyed it. I was really impressed with the capabilities of the instructors who frequently did demonstrations. I think it also has a lot of educational value.

Service was great as far as instructor & staff. They even give you a certificate of completion. My only complaint is that, we paid over $300 for 3 people, never got our video & were only in the air for 2 mins each. The price per time ratio isn't reasonable.


amazing time!
