John and Cooper visited iFly in Rosemont last night for a pre-Father’s Day outing. Cooper has flown once before, but it was John’s first time.
The iFly experience starts with a short training session where you learn how to enter and exit the tunnel, and what different hand signals mean. Next, iFly crews gets you all geared up with a flight suit, earplugs, and a helmet. Cooper was excited to try flying with the full helmet (they didn’t offer them the last time we visited) and reported that it made the experience much better because his mouth and face weren’t flapping in the wind!
An expert instructor accompanies each flyer into the tunnel to assist with body positioning and to make sure the experience is safe and fun.
John took two 2-minute flights and Cooper took three 2-minute flights and they had a blast. They had a chance to not only get comfortable in the wind tunnel and have a chance to fly on their own (with the instructor in the tunnel with them), learn a few tricks, and fly high in the tunnel with the instructor.
After everyone has completed their flights, the expert instructor gets a chance to demonstrate some of the really amazing things expert flyers can do in the tunnel.
iFly is a great experience for the whole family. Kids as young as 3 can fly! I do recommend checking out the website before planning your flight because there are some restrictions on who can and should fly.
