A Sportflyer is a person who has experience with flying in wind tunnels, an experienced skydiver or somebody who has passed through HiFly ACADEMY course.
Sportflight products are packages with 10 or more minutes of flying time per person. The flying time is usually devided into 2-minute entrances with breaks of 2 – 4 minutes between them.
Sportflyers can choose their own coach from our pool of instructors and arrange private classes with them. They can also join in our events with coaches from other tunnels around the world or be part of HiFly Clubs.
Tunnel flying is a fun activity, but also an official sport in which you can improve all the way up to the professional level. You can start with small tunnel competitions, continue at international ones and end up at the World Championships. We, Hurricane Factory, proud organizer of the 1st FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championships in 2015, will be happy to help you with your progress in flying.
