SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — If you’ve ever wanted to experience the exhilarating sensation of skydiving without having to plummet towards earth at 125 mph from 12,000 feet, now you can without boarding a plane.

iFly, located in Mission Valley, is an indoor skydiving facility that is a family fun freefall for all flyers from 3- to 103-years-old.

After learning hand signals and proper body position, 10News’ Kalyna Astrinos suited up and stepped into the two-story flight chamber.

iFly’s certified staff give participants a pre-flight training session, all the necessary flight gear (suit, helmet, goggles), and a personalized post-flight certificate.
