New GTA facility offers indoor skydiving thrills
iFly, opened last week, also helps train the Canadian military
A new facility in the GTA is giving people the opportunity to experience the thrill of skydiving without having to jump out of a plane.
iFly Toronto opened its doors last week, and users can complete the equivalent of ten regular jumps in about 30 minutes in the wind tunnel.
Canada's military uses the facility to train soldiers, but its open to the public and people of all ability levels.
"Anyone can do it. We've had people that were four years old that have done it; people that have been 92 years old have done it; people who can't move their legs or their arms or people who are blind have done it," said Alexandre Guerin, an instructor at iFly Toronto.
The CBC's Natalie Kalata went to check out the wind tunnel and experience the thrills firsthand.
