Great experience for all ages
25 March 2019
Enjoy all the fun of freefalling without having to jump out of a plane in this thrilling Indoor Skydiving Taster at Bodyflight. You and a lucky friend will head to the world’s largest skydiving wind tunnel in Bedfordshire for an exciting freefall experience as you hover beneath a giant propeller. Your feet won’t touch the ground as you experience the sensation of freefalling while being suspended in mid-air by artificial winds of up to 180mph.
Originally built in 1950 by the RAE, this incredible tunnel was once used to better understand aerodynamic forces. These days its state-of-the-art facilities are used for training world champion skydiving teams from all over the globe so you can be assured that you’re in good hands while at the centre. Perfect for anyone for those who just like to feel the wind in their hair or with a fear of flying – this experience is sure to give you an unforgettable outing at one of the most exciting skydiving training facilities in the world.
On arrival at Bodyflight, you’ll be greeted by staff and checked in. You’ll then attend a short briefing and instruction class on skydiving techniques to ensure you get the most out of your experience. Then it’s time to get kitted out in your flight gear, including flight suit, helmet, earplugs and goggles, which will all be provided for by the centre.
You, your friend and the rest of your group will then enter the tunnel area for your skydiving experience, which will consist of two flights that you'll share, each flight lasting approximately 1 minute. During these flights you will have the unique chance to fly in the tunnel together with your friend and your instructors of course.
Please note - if the instructors feel that it would be unsafe to fly people together (due to differences in weight and or height) then they will instead offer participants one solo flight each. Where possible they will give the option to upgrade to two solo flights each for a small fee.

Great experience for all ages
Great facilities and instructors (we had Jay and Jack), what a brilliant and fun experience!
It was very busy due to a competition but we were well looked after and briefed by Dave. An excellent experience, we really loved it and I'm looking at bringing my sons next time.
We shouldn't have booked this experience so far from where we live. We encountered an accident on the way there and had no chance of getting there on time so lost the experience as we hadn't taken out insurance. The staff were very helpful but we just couldn't get there.
I went with my 12 year old son and we flew together, it was brililant. Very well organised and the instructors were professional but fun.
