iFLY Indoor Skydiving Coaches and Ambassadors

 

All sessions come with an instructor to keep you safe. If you want to speed up your progression, we recommend hiring a private coach. Coaching is only $5 per minute on top of your existing tunnel time. Please contact us via the form below to book your coaching. Our coaches get booked up fast, so plan ahead to make the most out of your visit.

Your coach will give you a full briefing, work with you in the tunnel's airflow and provide a detailed video debrief. They will also give you tips for your next session, keep track of your progress and introduce you to other flyers and potential teammates.

You are welcome to bring your own coach or choose from our recommended coaches below. Coaches without a relevant IBA instructor rating will need to take a ‘hands off’ approach and request specialist spotting at least 7 days prior to the flight.
