Skydiving | Loudoun, Virginia

Fast Facts

  • While most athletes, run. Jump swim and play, the competitive and elite skydivers of IFly Loudoun fly for their sport!
  • Competitions take place in powerful wind tunnels. Therefore, the skydivers are experiencing the same force as jumping out of a plane.
  • Skydiving competitions are called Boogies.
  • One of IFly’s members, Ernie Torres, has a world record. He dived out of plane and broke 12 pine boards (karate style) before touching the ground.
  • Why Lock Laces®: Lock Laces® are worn by skydivers because they do not come untied in extreme winds. When laces come untied in the air, they whip the diver leaving an annoying sting.
