iFLY Downunder is thrilled to have been awarded the Australian Small Business Champion of the Year Award in the Sports & Recreation category. We are humbled and proud to have received such a prestigious award and extend our congratulations to the other nominees and winners, as well.

Over the years, we have always strived to provide a thrilling, unique and unforgettable sporting experience to Penrith, Sydney and beyond. Our hard work has been recognised, but that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down now!

“Being recognised as the winner of the Australian Small Business Champion Award in the Sport & Recreation sector is a moment of immense pride and joy for us. It is a testament to the unwavering passion, hard work, and dedication of our entire team. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our loyal customers, partners, and supporters who have been instrumental in our success. This award marks a significant milestone in our journey, and we are inspired to continue our pursuit of excellence, innovation, and community impact. Together, we will create a brighter, healthier, and more inclusive future through the power of sport and recreation.” Barbara McCarthy, our Head of Sales, said on the subject.

The Australian Small Business Champion Award aims to recognise up-and-coming businesses, or those not owned by major corporations, and acknowledge the hard work and love they give back to their communities. There are over 60 categories covering the greater Sydney area and NSW, so to have been made finalists, let alone win, is a privilege of its own regard.

We are inspired by our wonderful community’s love and support, and will continue to uphold our mission of making indoor skydiving accessible, safe, and most importantly, fun for all ages.
Thank you for being a part of our community and allowing us to provide you with this experience. We’re incredibly excited for the future, and eternally grateful to have been announced as winners.

SAVE THE DATE! 2017 Aussie Indoor Champs!

180830_ifly_2016_offline_2.mp4.00_00_46_20.Still019Indoor Skydiving Group Australia (ISAG) have now released the highly anticipated dates for the 3rd annual Australian Indoor Skydiving Championships.

Hosted at the ISAG’s flagship facility, iFLY Downunder (Sydney West), the championships will be held over two days on the 18th and 19th August.

‘Our 2016 Championships were huge!’ comments ISA Group’s Chief Marketing Officer, Brett Sheridan. ‘We had more teams, more individuals and more age groups enter than ever before, it is evident that indoor skydiving is fast becoming an incredibly popular sport for Australians’. The 2016 event had 163 individual competitors registered, making up 73 teams for 10 categories.  This year we anticipate an even bigger turnout with an increased number of categories and the competition spread over 2 days.

The Australian Indoor Skydiving Championships are free for the public to attend.

‘Our Championship is open to the public to come along and check out’ continues Sheridan ‘but I recommend people get in early, last year we were a packed house!’


iFLY Indoor Skydiving has been expanding rapidly across the country with locations now open in Penrith, Perth and the Gold Coast with more venues around the country set to open soon.

‘We have been overwhelmed with how indoor skydiving has been accepted by Australians,’ comments Brett.

Indoor Skydiving was originally used for skydivers and the military to practice stunts and skills in any weather and in a safe environment, however, over the years, it has transitioned into being a competitive sport internationally.

‘It’s such a unique sport and I think that’s what captivates people. You can improve to the point where it feels like you literally defy gravity and the more people become engaged in it, the more addicted they get!’ continues Sheridan.

180830_ifly_2016_offline_2.mp4.00_04_59_16.Still018Indoor skydiving has fast become the most popular choice amongst kids and parents looking for an alternative to the typical sport or hobby, and ISA Group is impressed at how many kids have taken it up as a competitive outlet. The 2016 championships saw 11 kids entered into the Junior Freestyle event, with 2 of the competitors later that year competing internationally in Poland and Seattle.

‘We expect Indoor Skydiving to continue thriving because of its cross-generational appeal,’ says Sheridan. ‘We have teams and flyers that range from ages 3 years to 60 years, from beginners to advanced. Indoor Skydiving is a sport that is incredibly fun to watch with the flyers fast choreographed movements, we are more than sure it will stay very popular.’

The Australian Indoor Skydiving Championships will be held at iFLY Downunder located at 123 Mulgoa Road, Penrith.  Further information and registrations will be available at
