|Man’s early attempt to fly|
Pictures of man attempting to fly have been found on cave walls dating back 4,300 years. The story of Icarus and his attempt to reach the sun with man-made wings is famous in Greek mythology. But today, near the Great Smoky Mountains, you can do what ancient man could not by learning to fly at Flyaway Indoor Skydiving n Pigeon Forge, TN.
Think about it…being free from the earth’s gravity and floating in air like the hawk or the majestic eagle and actually balancing and turning in the air with no support except the air beneath you and your arms and legs as ‘wings’. The idea makes me giddly with anticipation, and a bit nervous, but very eager to suit-up and try my wings.

|Personalized Flight Coach|
The experienced personnel at Flyaway will make sure that you have e a safe and enjoyable ride. Your training consists of a video explaining the procedure, a few hand signals from your guide, and a flight suit and helmet. Your personalized flight coach is there to give you tips and encouragement. When it is your turn you step into a column of air in America’s first vertical wind tunnel and leave gravity behind. You are flying baby!!
The more you fly the more comfortable and skilled you become in the air and you will find yourself trying dives, rolls and flips while you are in the air. This is a rush that has to be experienced!
