June 25, 2018 – Dallas, TX – Professional skydiver Jon Walker joins the Urban Air Corporate team as Director of Training and Tunnel Operations effective immediately. With over 500 jumps and eleven years of experience at iFly as a certified flight instructor, this dynamo is a perfect fit to launch the thrill-seeking sport of indoor skydiving.
“We are excited for Jon to bring his experience and indoor skydiving expertise to Urban Air,” said Michael Browning, CEO. “Jon will be helping Urban Air change the indoor skydiving industry by making it more affordable and thus something that can become a true hobby for our guests.”
The first location to receive flyers will be Urban Air’s Fort Worth, Texas park set to open in August 2018 at 8747 Harmon Road.
This extraordinary experience will allow people of all ages (3 and up) to defy gravity and take flight in a safe, comfortable indoor wind tunnel. Guests will complete a training class where they learn the basics of human flight. After the class, customers gear up with their flight suit and begin their journey to defy gravity and free fall without jumping out of an airplane.
Because the tunnel environment is controlled indoors, a wider range of flyers can take part. Young ones will be taught how to control their body hovering a few feet above air flow and the more experienced flyers can fly up to 24 feet high in the tunnel. Weather is never a factor for those who want the pure joy of human flight. Please join us in August as we celebrate the opening of this launch in Fort Worth, Texas – the first of dozens of locations to receive indoor skydiving. Urban Air will also allow walk-ins who just want to go to the Flight Deck.
