The need to “feel the wind in your hair” is best fulfilled by skydiving, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Feel the rush with today’s Groupon: for $36, you get an Earn Your Wings package with a DVD of your session (up to a $79.95 value) at iFly SF in Union City. This Groupon is not valid on Saturday or Sunday.
The Earn Your Wings package includes:
- One training session.
- Use of all flight gear.
- Two one-minute flights in the vertical wind tunnel.
- Hands-on assistance from an instructor.
- A personalized flight certificate.
- DVD footage of your session.<p>
iFly’s technology, which is all-ages friendly, simulates the feeling of skydiving without plummeting toward the earth at 9.8 meters per second. iFly’s wind tunnel simulates skydiving by suspending patrons only a few feet off the ground sans parachute. This package gets Groupon-holders two flights in the tunnel—the time equivalent of three tandem skydives—plenty of time to practice an MJ-tribute moonwalk, rid the dust from gaming cartridges, or pop the question to a significant other. The DVD lets fliers relive tricks and maneuvers for years to come, and a personalized flight certificate gets 2.5 hours of free valet parking. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.

iFLY simulates skydiving without plummeting toward the earth at 9.8 meters per second by floating patrons in a vertical wind tunnel. Unlike an amusement-park ride, simulator, or a jump off a one-story house, the vertical wind tunnel re-creates the experience of actual flying, with professional instructors controlling the airflow the entire time and communicating with fliers via hand signals. iFLY’s cache of earplugs, flight suits, helmets, and goggles keep divers protected during flight. iFLY plans flights for groups of all sizes and occasions including birthdays, corporate events, and summer camps.
