Programme overview

Our unique excursions are designed for primary, secondary & tertiary students. They include:

Lesson plan co-ordination between iFLY Educator and school/camp/club contact
Experiments in the wind tunnel testing the effect of an object's mass and surface area on its terminal velocity
Flying instruction & safety training
1 flight each with supervision from one of our highly-trained and certified instructors
Physics, PDHPE, Math and Science lessons, tailored to the participants' age group
Video of the full flight session
Duration: 3 hours depending on your group size
No experience necessary, anyone can fly!
Available weekdays
Groups from 10 through to 300 students (depending on location)

Check out the 1ST South Penrith Scouts Group educational visit to iFLY Downunder (Syndey West) which earnt them their Science Proficiency badges! Read more about their visit here.

 

PDHPE
Indoor skydiving is a sport, and in our fun lesson students will learn about the physical skills required to fly, as well as the different classes of competition. Then they get to experience it for themselves!

 

SCIENCE
Our science program is tailored to show students how scientific principles make human flight possible. Then they will get to put the science into practice and see how their predictions relate to the real world.

 

MATH
Maths is critical for flight – in our maths lesson, students will learn about how to calculate terminal velocity, as well as discussing ways to calculate surface area for simplified objects and the relationships between weight, size and speed.

 

PHYSICS
Indoor skydiving wouldn’t be possible without a thorough understanding of the physical principles underlying flight – learn about how the surface area, wind speed and weight interact to make you fly!

 

ENGINEERING
Learn about the design principles that make indoor skydiving possible! We discuss Bernoulli’s principle, aerodynamics, drag and turbulence.

 

Glenmore Park High School Mathematics Department took a group of 90 Year 7 students to iFLY as a Maths excursion and here is what they had to say":

"The kids were so excited from the minute we told them and for weeks after the excursion was over, were still raving about how much fun they had and how they loved watching their friends and teachers fly too! From a teaching perspective, we all agreed that the lesson run by the iFLY educator was fantastic and showed how maths is involved in cool things that students get to do. The teachers also got to fly for free and absolutely loved it! It was such an easy excursion to organise, and from day one, the staff from iFly were so helpful and flexible. We will be making this excursion an annual event and would recommend it to any other schools out there!"
