A Singapore Minute (Part 2 of 5): iFly Singapore
SINGAPORE – As far as pushing the limits of what the human body is capable of, very few activities can come close to the adrenalin-pumping pursuit that is skydiving. Against all that is considered safe and normal, people keep pushing themselves out of a moving airplane to jump out into the open sky. That is insane. And yet for us spectators, we find ourselves intrigued and wondering if we have the guts to do it. (WATCH: A Singapore Minute (Part 1 of 5): The National Gallery)
Well, no need to second-guess yourself. Sentosa Island has a safe facility where you can experience "true free-fall conditions,” just like those aerial daredevils. iFly Singapore boasts of the world’s first largest indoorwind tunnel, which is able to simulate how it feels to fall from 12,000 feet.
Before everything, there is a short orientation with your designated instructor. It’s important to memorize your coach’s hand signals as they properly guide you inside the wind tunnel. iFly prides itself in having skilled instructors who make sure you get the most out of each dive while ensuring your safety at the same time. They are certified by the International Bodyflight Association, so you know you are in good hands.
Bodyflight, as indoor skydiving is increasingly known is now an acknowledged sport. So much so that enthusiasts worldwide have started a campaign to make it an Olympic sport. – Rappler.com
