iFly Indoor Skydiving


Yonkers, New York -- January, 2016 -- iFLY, the world’s largest Indoor Skydiving Company, is now delivering the dream of flight to adventure seekers in the Westchester County area. The new location at 849 Ridge Hill Boulevard at Ridge Hill marks the 13th iFLY facility in the United States. New Yorkers who have looked to the skies and dreamed of flying like a Super-Hero or soaring like an eagle can now make that dream come true. 

Each iFLY indoor skydiving facility is a marvel of engineering that replicates the experience of skydiving, creating conditions that allow people to fly on a smooth cushion of air. With the help of iFLY certified flight instructors, customers learn to fly, control their bodies in the air, and experience true human flight. People of all ages and abilities can experience human flight in a safe, comfortable and fun environment. 

What is iFly?

“Our mission is to deliver the dream of flight to everybody, whether you’re age three or 103,” said Matt Ryan, iFLY President and COO. “Since 1998, more than seven million customers worldwide have experienced human flight at iFLY in a variety of ways: as a fun excursion with family and friends, a student on an educational Science, Technology, and Math (S.T.E.M.) field trip, a professional skydiver or member of the military for training, and a corporate customer looking for a unique team building activity. Thanks to iFLY, flying is finally available to everyone.” 

I just experienced iFly on Friday, thanks to IT Cosmetics (separate post coming up shortly and here is my flight: 


To prepare for their flight experience, customers complete a training class guided by one of iFLY’s flight and safety instructors, and are equipped with flight gear, including goggles, helmet and flight suit, and then with their instructor at their side, they enter the flight chamber and are supported by a cushion of air. 

All flight packages include training, flight gear, and flight time with an International Bodyflight Association (IBA) certified instructor. The IBA has established the Gold Standard for training and safety standards for Indoor Skydiving Instructors and all iFLY instructors meet or exceed IBA standards.
