Indoor Skydiving at iFLY (formerly known as Airkix)

Indoor skydiving is the perfect gift for the adrenaline-seeker who isn't quite ready for their first jump from an airplane, as well as children, those with a fear of heights, and many others who wouldn't be able to undertake a regular skydive. Because it's so popular, safe, and fun, Buyagift has partnered with iFLY (formerly Airkix) Indoor Skydiving to make this experience available to as many people as possible!

Indoor skydiving allows you to feel the rush of air against you as you fly, suspended in a wind tunnel, for a length of time that an ordinary skydiver wouldn't achieve-the equivalent of jumping from 24,000 feet, or 23 times the height of London's Shard! On an ordinary jump, it can be tricky for first-timers to fully appreciate the experience before pulling their parachute-but with indoor skydiving, there's no need to cut the enjoyment short. Plus, they have three different locations, in Milton Keynes, Basingstoke, and Manchester, so everyone can get in on the fun, wherever the lucky recipient of this gift experience voucher lives.

Everyone receives a complete safety briefing from the professionals at iFLY, before watching them show you how it's done.When it's time to try it out personally, all you have to do it step into the chamber, and lean into wind. The instructor will position the flyer in a neutral position while they demonstrate some moves, and then it's up to the participant to see if they can master going forwards, backwards, sideways, and more. It's surprisingly easy, and completely exhilarating!

For those who have already caught the skydiving bug, there's an extended indoor skydive, with the chance to fly an incredible four times! And if you're looking for a gift to give a couple, consider giving the gift of skydiving for two.

Build your skills for a first jump, or just relax and have fun, with indoor skydiving from Buyagift and iFLY.

LocationsHow does it work?

After adorning your flight gear, you'll receive a full safety briefing and demo from a friendly instructor. Then you're ready - just step into the wind tunnel for the flight of your life. The instructor will help position you into a neutral position before showing you some basic moves. These include backwards, forwards, sideways and turning - all of which are easy to pick up quickly.

Using the very same technology that they use to test the aerodynamics of F1 racing cars, the wind tunnel circulates air into a flight chamber. All you'll need to do is stand inside the open doorway, lean forward and away you go!
