Indoor skydiving or bodyflying, through freefall simulators is a sport which was introduced in the US in the early 90s.
Since then, both as a sport (sportflyers) and as a genuinely fun recreation (first flyers), the activity has witnessed a phenomenal growth in popularity. This being the result of the awesome combination of an adrenaline-filled, fun, exciting experience practiced in total safety.
Today it is estimated that the worldwide community whom have today experienced indoor skydiving is above 9,000,000 people.
As a sport, Indoor Skydiving was among the new disciplines presented for the Olympics in Paris 2024. Whilst unfortunately not successful, it will again be re-presented at Los Angeles 2028.
In the meantime, many international competitions continue to be held every year throughout the world. We are proud to say that our head-instructor, Giuseppe Cossu, placed third at the World Championships in Bahrein in 2018.
