Ripcord by iFly allows everyone from first-time flyers to seasoned skydivers to enjoy skydiving in a safe, controlled, simulated environment. It all takes place inside a 23-foot tall glass flight chamber while taking in stunning ocean views.

Before taking flight guests register and participate in a training course where they are taught correct flight position and hand signals from trained instructors. Guests are then outfitted in their flight gear, including a jumpsuit, goggles and helmet. Once on the flight deck, each guest enjoys two, one-minute long flights with an instructor, consisting of one practice flight followed by a free-style flight. Guests can purchase commemorative photos and video to cherish for years to come.
