Enjoy the thrill of skydiving without callously taunting the miracle of life – and get a free DVD while you’re at it.
Bodyflight is the world’s largest, and therefore best, indoor skydiving wind tunnel. Go big or go home, we say (without advocating actual skydiving – see above).
In a suitably Bond-worthy development, Bodyflight turns out to have been a former MOD testing facility. Guess that explains why Daniel Craig trained there for 'Quantam of Solace' (see image).
Valid until July 14, 2013, indoor skydiving is the perfect gift for all sorts of occasions.
Enjoy all the fun of skydiving without leaping out of a plane like some kind of mad person. At Bodyflight, the UK’s first and world’s largest skydiving wind tunnel, you’ll be suspended in mid-air by a giant propeller blasting air at up to 200mph – and you’ll never be more than a few feet from the ground.
This incredible facility is the first choice of skydiving teams from all over the world, so you can rest assured you’ll be in the very best hands of top professionals. And to sweeten the deal that extra bit further, you’ll receive a free DVD with footage of your flight and other extras to help you relive your awesome experience.
Originally built by the MOD in 1950 to test the aerodynamics of aircraft parts and ejector seats, Bodyflight was demilitarised in the late-’90s. After a great deal of investment and hard work, the tunnel was bought back to life in its current incarnation.
Your day will include a training class and two ‘flights’ together, each lasting approximately 1 minute and 15 seconds.
