Indoor skydiving is the perfect gift for the adrenaline-seeker who isn't quite ready for their first jump from an airplane, as well as children, those with a fear of heights, and many others who wouldn't be able to undertake a regular skydive. Because it's so popular, safe, and fun, Buyagift has partnered with Airkix Indoor Skydiving to make this experience available to as many people as possible!
Indoor skydiving allows you to feel the rush of air against you as you fly, suspended in a wind tunnel, for a length of time that an ordinary skydiver wouldn't achieve-the equivalent of jumping from 24,000 feet, or 23 times the height of London's Shard! On an ordinary jump, it can be tricky for first-timers to fully appreciate the experience before pulling their parachute-but with indoor skydiving, there's no need to cut the enjoyment short. Plus, they have three different locations, in Milton Keynes, Basingstoke, and Manchester, so everyone can get in on the fun, wherever the lucky recipient of this gift experience voucher lives.
Everyone receives a complete safety briefing from the professionals at Airkix, before watching them show you how it's done.When it's time to try it out personally, all you have to do it step into the chamber, and lean into wind. The instructor will position the flyer in a neutral position while they demonstrate some moves, and then it's up to the participant to see if they can master going forwards, backwards, sideways, and more. It's surprisingly easy, and completely exhilarating!
Not sure which experience is for you? No worries, because we offer three comprehensive indoor skydive adventures to choose from. Our basic lesson is perfect for the first-timer, and comes with two flights and a souvenir DVD taken during your flight, so you can relive the memories afterwards.
For those who have already caught the skydiving bug, there's an extended indoor skydive, with the chance to fly an incredible four times! And if you're looking for a gift to give a couple, consider giving the gift of skydiving for two-like the basic lesson, it comes with two flight opportunities, but the recipient will get to have their partner by their side as they experience the excitement of freefall. Both of these flight options also include a souvenir flight DVD.
Build your skills for a first jump, or just relax and have fun, with indoor skydiving from Buyagift and Airkix.

After adorning your flight gear, you'll receive a full safety briefing and demo from a friendly instructor. Then you're ready - just step into the wind tunnel for the flight of your life.
The instructor will help position you into a neutral position before showing you some basic moves. These include backwards, forwards, sideways and turning - all of which are easy to pick up quickly.
Using the very same technology that they use to test the aerodynamics of F1 racing cars, the wind tunnel circulates air into a flight chamber. All you'll need to do is stand inside the open doorway, lean forward and away you go!
As long as you're fit and healthy, then there's no reason why you can't enjoy the thrills of an indoor skydiving flight, and amazingly the minimum age is four, so the kids can
come along too!
There are a few small criteria you should be aware of before booking, but Airkix guarantee to do their very best to make your flight happen.
