This is an indoor skydiving center that gives people of all ages the experience of skydiving without jumping out of a plane.

iFly uses a vertical wind tunnel, which allows the body to take flight comfortably.

"As the first iFLY to open in Michigan, this facility is the most innovative tunnel in the world and will attract the novice, as well as very accomplished flyers," said Bob Ash, General Manager of iFLY Detroit. "We fully anticipate people from around the world will come to Detroit to experience the Gen 9 technology, which makes this an exemplary tunnel."
