Highlights
  • iFLY Indoor Skydiving - San Diego Mission Valley - Arrive at iFLY San Diego, and get started by putting on your gear and going through a specialized training session from an expert flight instructor.

You’ll learn how to safely float in an 800-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air - commonly used by professional skydivers - without having to jump from a plane. Just about anyone can fly, and no experience is necessary.

Once you’re inside the enclosed space of the flight chamber, a tunnel operator slowly increases the wind speed until you and your instructor are airborne. Feel the adrenaline rush as you float at wind speeds reaching 130 to 175 mph (209 to 282 kph). The stable wall-to-wall airflow keeps you from falling off the column of air, and your instructor is on hand at all times to guide you.

The entire skydiving experience takes about 75 minutes from start to finish. Each session includes up to six people, but you fly one-on-one with your instructor for 60 seconds in the wind tunnel twice.

What's Included
  • One-on-one guidance from a certified flight instructor
  • Training and use of all gear
  • Two (2) Flights for 1 person
  • Local taxes included
  • Certificate of flight achievement
What's Not Included

Highly recommend this experience! - This experience totally exceeded our expectations. Lots of fun and felt safe the whole time. Our instructor, Alex, was professional and upbeat. In our group of 7 flyers, 3 chose to do the "higher and faster" flight and found it really exhilerating. Alex showed us some of his great tricks at the end that were very impressive. Highly recommend this experience.

60th Birthday Surprise - 60th Birthday surprise for my partner. He is afraid of heights so the next best option was indoor skydiving. What a blast. We had an awesome time and even did two extra flights. This was awesome and is a must if in San Diego.

Great flying experience with professional instructors - It was a unique experience flying in this state of the art wind tunnel. The professional instructors there make the activity safe and comfortable even for first-timers. My son and daughter in law had done this before but my wife and I were first timers. We took three flights of two minutes each, Ryan (hope I have his his name right) was our instructor and he sure did a professional job. He was patient, enthusiastic, encouraging and calming and made us enjoy our first time experience. He did not rush us and was genuinely excited to teach and help us improve. His session with my son (who has many hours of flying experience) enlightened us on how much individuals can do in a wind channel. Their four sessions were great to watch. After our flights he took time to discuss our flights with us and pointed out areas for improvement. The entire staff was full of smiles and welcoming and we had a very good time there. This was probably the highlight of my Los Angeles visit. Munir D.

expensive for 2 mins - As shared by another reviewer, the ‘flight time’ is only 2 minutes. Also the upswell pressure is pretty high e g if you want to go higher than about a metre it is an extra twenty dollars and comes out of your existing time. the video and pictures are not worth it - you can get just as good if someone stands by the chamber.

terrible front desk service and predatory charging practices - Will overcharge you every chance they get and terrible customer service! We first went a couple weeks ago as a single flyer for my mother's birthday. She had a great time, but when they asked her if she wanted to go higher while she was in the wind tunnel she said yes, not realizing there was an extra charge. Ok, so I let that one "fly". Bought a pass for 10 return flights for the advertised $229 price so I could split between 5 people (not the lower price for only 2 people). total was over $300 for that, but I thought that included my mothers flight, never checking my card that they actually had already charged me days prior for my moms flight. Fast forward and get there with my 4 other friends after calling to book for FIVE people and rudely am told by front that I bought the $149 package for only 2 people. Without making any effort to look it up, Amanda asked me to go find my voucher, which I did, and she still says I bought the $149. Then I have to find my receipt for over $300 and then she decides she will check the system for me, and surprise, they charged me $299 for the $229 package. Then Im told we can give you a credit for the difference, for high flights- fine, at least I wont be surprised at the end with extra charges. What would have been appropriate is to apologize, refund me the difference to my card, and offer a small compensation for their error (ie. a free $20 high flight)- this was not done. For as much as I spent there I would expect nicer front desk people and some effort on their part to listen to the customer! On top of that, had to spend twice a long there while we let the professional skydivers take turns between our group participants, not cool. Despite having fun and a great flight instructor on the 2nd group flight, I will not be returning.
