YONKERS, NY — IFly Indoor Skydiving is scheduled to engage in a groundbreaking ceremony this fall on grounds adjacent to the Monarch Apartment complex. It is estimated completion will be in early 2015.

The IFly experience is powered by four fans located at the top of the building that creates a cushion of air within the wind tunnel on which a person can safely float. No special skills are required and almost anyone older than three can participate. Anticipated cost for the unique experience, of which this one will be one of 14 throughout the nation, is expected to cost approximately $60 for a four-minute experience of a lifetime.

    There is an enthusiastic sky diving community in the NY / Tristate area that will indeed be repeat customers. We’ve been traveling 200+ miles each way to use the closest wind tunnel in Nashua, New Hampshire. This obviously limits how often we can use the tunnel. I’m looking forward to being at iFly Yonkers on a weekly basis. And if the experience at other tunnels is indication, the first timers, folks who only try it once, people who host parties there, etc., combined with the “regulars” seems to make for a rather successful, sustainable business model.

    As for the tunnel contributing to Ridge Hill “soon be(ing) a real dump” — do you really believe that people who have enough disposable income to spend several hundred dollars an hour for tunnel time will contribute to making Ridge Hill a dump? Seems like quite the opposite as at very least it will bring an influx of customers to the local restaurants and other support businesses.

    Looking forward to 2015!

      You really have no idea how wrong you are about how successful this business will be. I have personally flown in maybe 15 different wind tunnels around the world and spent thousands of dollars on the experience. You will be surprised how many people spend the time and money to pursue this evolving sport. Every time a new wind tunnel opens I have been surprised how successful it has been.

      Additionally the wind tunnel will have a very large catchment area and bring business to the area. You should be proud to host this facility in your town. I for one will travel around 2 hours to get there and most likely spend money on restaurants and hotels nearby.

      It really will be an amazing thing and you should not knock it until you have tried it.
