Floating fun: Even if you don't feel like flying, or simply not sure, it can be fun to sit back with a coffee and watch from the free viewing gallery.

This could be one of the easiest presents to buy and bring the biggest smiles.

Christmas gift vouchers are available for iFly, a safe and fun activity in Penrith for everyone from three years old.

Cheryl Dawson, iFLY National Marketing Manager said the most common response from people who have tried iFly is ‘Let’s do that again.’

She said that while some people have a fear of having to jump from something high, that is not the case at iFly. “There is no jumping required with indoor skydiving, you simple lean through the door that is at ground level and you are lifted up into flight,” she said.

iFLY’s instructors are highly trained and are in the wind at all times guiding the flyers and ensuring their safety. “When you’re learning, you fly on your own. But soon after you progress you can start flying with friends,” Ms Dawson said. 

The whole experience lasts for around one hour 45 minutes, which includes pre-flight training. 

iFLY Indoor Skydiving is one of the only sports where the whole family can participate together no matter the age or ability. “Being such a family sport, where the whole family including mum, dad, grandma or pa can train and play together is why we have seen such a strong response,” Ms Dawson said.

iFLY will offer Superhero Training Days during January.
