Pre-Flight Checklist
Little Ninja Night and Little Jets classes are specifically designed for 6-12 year olds who yes, love getting in the tunnel and learning how to fly! Before the class, the six intrepid ninjas will get suited up with a flight suit, complete with handles (wonder if those suits can be rented for use afterwards?). These high-flyers will also don helmets and goggles and their best game face.

Newbie or a High-Flying Veteran?
If your little daredevil is a newcomer to indoor skydiving then he or she will begin with the Little Jets class, offered on Wednesday nights. The instructor goes through one-on-one instruction on what to expect inside and outside the wind tunnel, including very specific instructions about the hand signals that are used.

Helpful Hint: If you are considering signing your daring dynamo up for this indoor skydiving class but not sure what skills are needed, we can tell you that your child needs to be able to control his or her hands, arms and legs simultaneously and be able to understand the instructor’s hand signals.

A Little Instruction 
Instructor, Cat Adam, helps each kiddo into the tunnel and for beginners helps them gradually lift off the mesh netting and into the air. For the more advanced flyers, Adam helps them develop a routine that can include flying with a partner, flying upside down and even flying in the sitting position… not as easy as it might seem. During the half-hour class, the ninja’s rotate in and out of the wind tunnel with their classmates. Their five minutes of high-flying fun is broken up into three turns, each of them one minute and 40 seconds long. And likely an experience that will have your courageous kiddo clamoring for more!
