    New Indoor Skydiving Facility May Be Opening In Jacksonville




    iFLY, a company who operates indoor skydiving facilities, is looking at the possibility of opening one of them in our area near the Town Center off I-295.

    iFLY is the experiential entertainment company that created modern indoor skydiving. They make the dream of flight a reality by giving their customers “wings” in a safe and reliable environment.

    iFLY started in 1998 as SkyVenture, LLC. Once they had developed the technology to create a stable, wall-to-wall cushion of air in a flight chamber, they knew they could offer an incredibly realistic and safe indoor skydiving experience. They opened their first indoor skydiving facility in 1999. Between 1999 and 2005, they opened three more facilities. In 2005, they rebranded themselves iFLY, maintaining SkyVenture as their design and manufacturing company.

    They welcome flyers from 3 to 103. If you have reasonable health and fitness you can fly. iFly will do everything they can to help you fly because their goal is to deliver the dream of flight to everyone
