Airkix Manchester has a wind tunnel which suspends people in a column of air, affording them a skydiving and flying experience.
I met Rachel at reception and told her about what I was doing. Rachel instantly recognized Debs on the photograph I showed her and told me that Deb is a regular and enthusiastic flyer who’s now learning how to fly on her back!
Rachel took me upstairs to the wind tunnel. An instructor was taking flyers into the tunnel; teaching them the basics of belly flying and how move up and down by reducing or increasing their body’s surface area.
Rachel showed me a skills progression chart displaying the various flying tricks that can be learned. She goes flying a lot herself and is learning how to sit and spin.
She gave the assemblage an Airkix air freshener and then sent me to Altrincham Market for a flat white by Phil. She also recommended I try the pizza at Honest Crust.
