iFLY NZ

Who can fly?

iFLY is for everyone, from age five upwards.

There are very few reasons why you may not be able to fly and we are super proud of our record of flying those with disabilities of every nature. We want to help everyone to fly because our goal is to deliver the dream of flight to everyone. There are a few restrictions so check the criteria below before you book. In general you can fly if you:

  1. Do not weigh more than 136kg (300lbs)*
  2. Are age five or above (you must be able to comfortably wear one of our helmets);
  3. Are NOT pregnant;
  4. Have NOT previously dislocated your shoulder;
  5. Are NOT under the influence of alcohol or non-prescribed drugs;
  6. Are NOT wearing a hard cast;
  7. Have signed permission from a parent or guardian if under 18 yrs of age;**
  8. Have signed our Waiver.

*If you weigh between 117kg (258lbs) and 136kg (300lbs) please give us a call when you book, as some restrictions may apply.

**Flyers under 18 yrs of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (over 18 yrs of age) on the day of flight. The parent / guardian will be required to provide a signature, as well as attend the classroom briefing.

All abilities are very welcome

iFLY is grateful for the opportunity to make the dream of flight a reality for those in the special needs community. We are able to support those with physical and cognitive challenges and aim to create an environment of support and inclusion, while focusing on making what seems impossible, possible. If you or someone in your life is unable to participate in able-bodied activities but still wants to be challenged and push their limits, iFLY is for you.

"For people with injuries or disabilities, iFLY indoor skydiving is ideal. The experience gives our members the feeling of being active again, and being able to do something that is both challenging and exciting. It’s great to see everyone’s spirits so visibly lifted from their time in the tunnel" - Rosie Thompson, The Not Forgotten Society, UK
