At iFLY, they believe the impossible is possible. They believe in encouraging people to dream big and dream often. Each and every single one of us in the world, in some way or another, is chasing a better version of ourselves.

Flying is limitless and inclusive.

At iFLY, they are proud to empower people to soar beyond their own expectations. To make this possible for each and every single person in the world, they invite people of all abilities to come fly.

They believe that regardless of physical or cognitive challenges, everyone should be given the opportunity to spread their wings. Anyone who comes to fly at iFLY and expresses a desire for assistance will be helped by specially trained flight instructors and will be afforded proper accommodations based on specific challenges.
