iFLY’s safety team has taken expert advice, defined principally by the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local public health authorities, to reopen in the safest way possible. Now, iFLY Indoor Skydiving is cleared for liftoff and will be welcoming customers old and new at their Orlando location.
“iFLY has been committed to safe flight since 1998; we even invented the industry standards,” iFLY CEO Simon Ward commented. “Now for the first time, we’ve added a whole new level of safety to keep our team members and flyers safe from the moment they arrive until they leave. Since this outbreak started, our safety teams have worked nonstop to ensure that we follow best practices, adopt some new practices and make the flying experience as personalized, challenging and thrilling as it has ever been.”
As iFLY begins to reopen their doors to the public and prepare to safely return to flying, returning customers will notice enhanced safety procedures which will include, but are not limited to, the following: ability to complete waivers online, touchless temperature readings for all entering the building, contact-free check-in, floor markings indicating distancing requirements, all equipment including helmets, goggles and flights suits sanitized and washed after each use, hand sanitizer stations throughout the facility, and surface areas and touchpoints such as counters, door handles and bathroom facilities will be regularly wiped down with disinfectant.
Additionally, iFLY’s wind tunnels have a fresh air advantage over other retail experiences. This works by simply recirculating and refreshing the air from outside to create the most efficient and clean environment in our wind tunnel. At a slow flying speed, the air will refresh about ten times faster than an average store or gym, and at a higher flying speed, which is typically when guests see instructors showing off their skills, the air can easily double the refresh rate again. Guests can fly high knowing they are getting some of the best fresh air in town.
iFLY Orlando is open Wednesday to Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and flight reservations are now being accepted online.
