Body Flight

Bodyflight or bodyflying is a generic term for indoor skydiving usually associated with the use of a vertical wind tunnel.

Indoor skydivers use a wind tunnel to practice and improve their freefall, bodyflight, bodyflying, flying and skydiving skills and they will often practice in a wind tunnel before taking the new skills to the sky.


Learning bodyflying

The art of freefall is all about having the ability to fly with other skydivers or bodyflyers relative to one another. There are a number of factors involved such as weight, build, body shape, jumpsuit and use of limbs. In the tunnel you can add wind speed to the equation.

At our Basingstoke (opening Summer 2013), Manchester and Milton Keynes tunnel we instruct and coach in the art of bodyflight and bodyflying but it starts with your first session.

Am I ready for bodyflight?


If you are already an experienced Airkix flyer, pro-flyer, bodyflyer or skydiver you can benefit from our best rates here and from expert coaching.

Just like many other sports, the better you become the more you tend to specialise and we can teach all aspects of bodyflight from flat flying skills, FS or formation skydiving, right through to back flying, sit flying and head down. In fact we can teach bodyflight in any orientation!

Our instructors also have a complete bodyflying progression that teaches them the art of bodyflight and, more importantly, how to teach it. They are all licensed by the International Bodyflight Association (IBA).

The IBA also offer flyer ratings for all aspects of indoor skydiving.

See the International Bodyflight Association website here.

“I really can't think of any way in which you at Airkix could have made my experience any better for me today. It's down to me, really, to learn and improve on the skills you teach us.”

“Well, I had my flights (for the first time) this morning and it's now about 4.00 and I'm still buzzing! It was utterly wonderful! I thought your advertising was a bit O.T.T at first by saying something like 'life will never be the same again/life changing....' and I hadn't built up any dramatic expectations - even though I was really excited and looking forward to the experience. But, I now think your advertising about nails it! I'm coming back - with others! I would also, whilst here, like to compliment you on your professionalism, friendliness, safety awareness and attention to detail. Thank you all so much - and especially Stuart, my instructor, who was so clear, always encouraging and made it such a fun experience. Thanks! Stephanie”
