Event Details

Indoor skydiving at Milton Keynes!
Tuesday 13th October 2020
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are delighted to announce the third in our series of three Indoor Skydiving Events.  This one will be in our Central Region (Beds/Herts/Bucks) where we’re again working with the fantastic crew at iFLY in Milton Keynes. They are a really enthusiastic posse of people – who will introduce you to the thrills and excitement of skydiving on 13th October 2020.

IMPORTANT COVID NOTICE

Covid-19 procedures require that, if you will need any help getting into a flying suit, you have a nominee (personal assistant, relative,etc) being a member of your bubble from whom you are not required to isolate, who, alone, will be able to help you. Unfortunately, under the present situation there can be no close handling by any other person, including iFLY staff, except in the wind tunnel.

Covid precautions: iFLY have in place a system of pre-sanitised helmets; flying suits; social distancing; limited group sizes etc. Sanitiser will be available at all times. PA’s, friends or family, are limited to a maximum of 1 per flyer. You must arrive wearing a face covering. Temperature screening will take place on arrival. If they have any reason to believe that visitors exhibit Covid-19 symptoms, they will be unable to permit entry. They are working with the general public on those terms.

These are, of course, precautions intended to minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmissions that iFLY have put in place in order to comply with their obligations under government directives. However, as you will appreciate, there is no absolute guarantee on non-infection and we would accordingly ask you to please ensure that you carefully assess the risk in respect of your own personal condition before deciding whether or not to participate.

Event Details: Here’s what they say, “Yes, you really can fly! iFLY is where those dreams of flight become a reality. Get ready to be suspended in our column of air which totally reproduces the feeling of free-fall. Super safe, super fun and super cool!”

iFLY Milton Keynes is situated at Xscape, directly adjacent to the main Milton Keynes shopping centre. Their wind high-fly-at-ifly-basingstoketunnel was the first of its kind in the UK and introduced the wonders of indoor skydiving to Britain! With a 12ft (3.66m) diameter, super-smooth, super-fast and super-cool wind tunnel, which jets you off the floor at wind speeds reaching 165 mph, and suspends you airborne. It is literally a ‘blast’.

We’ve agreed some taster flights for our people. You might only be flying for a few minutes, but it will make you feel sky high.

That’s what we call an Experience!

Flying suits and helmets will be provided and there are no particular dress requirements, except trainers or soft shoes are the preferred footwear; and anyone with long hair should have the means to tie it back.

We’ll meet promptly at 12.00 pm.

The centre is fully wheelchair accessible and there is a lift to the flying floor. Access to the waiting room is also wheelchair accessible BUT the entrance to the wind tunnel is narrow. Don’t worry! Assistance will be on hand for those that need it.

So we’ll be seeing you in the reception at: iFLY Indoor Skydiving, 602 Marlborough Gate, Central Milton Keynes, MK9 3XS

For further info log on to the iFLY website.

Important Notice The following conditions are advised by iFLY and apply to all participants. Persons flying should never have had a dislocated shoulder, and not suffer with epilepsy. There is a weight limit of maximum 18 stone (114kg).

The sport will be restricted solely to people within our remit i.e. with some form of paralysis.

When booking please provide the following information which helps with the smooth running of the event – are you in a wheelchair and can you weight-bear and do a standing transfer?

So, to recap: the date and time for your diary are:
