For my birthday, I took my friends Billy and Thane indoor skydiving at iFLY! iFLY is basically a vertical wind tunnel. There are massive fans that blow a column of air up and it lifts you off your feet
Before beginning flyers, like us got to fly, we first went to flight school. There, our instructor Victor taught us what the correct body position was and what the hand signals meant. Next we put on flight suits, goggles, ear plugs, and helmets. After that, it was time to fly!
Before me was Billy and after him was Thane, so I got to watch both of them fly before me. Billy did great, and so did Thane, but unfortunately Thane lost his shoe at the end of his flight and the instructor had to go get it!
And then it was my turn. It was unlike anything I have done before, and I've done a lot of things! I stepped in to the chamber, and I had the greatest feeling! It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, but it was so cool! I didn't do very well with my legs, but it was still great, and even better on my second flight because I knew exactly what to do!
A great big thanks goes to my dad for paying for our little adventure and driving us there! Also, thanks a lot to the people at iFLY for showing us a great time. I highly recommend iFLY to everyone, all ages, because even though it's a little scary at first, you end up having a great time.
I can't wait to go back! I hope to see you there!
