Commissioning Completed at iFLY Gold Coast

Indoor Skydive Australia Group Limited (ASX: IDZ)(ISA Group) today announced that commissioning of the 12 foot indoor skydiving vertical wind tunnel at iFLY Gold Coast has been successfully completed.

iFLY Gold Coast is the world’s first 12 foot diameter single return facility designed by our technology supplier –  SkyVenture. The more compact design allows ISA Group to commercially exploit more challenging locations such as Surfers Paradise where size and footprint is limited by the environment.

The commissioning process involved control engineers, variable frequency drive technicians and chiller technicians working together over four different phases to examine, test and balance the sophisticated vertical wind tunnel componentry. The commissioning was completed in conjunction with the specialist SkyVenture commissioning team in just over 4 weeks.

Post commissioning the next stage of construction focuses on completion of the regulatory requirements for certification of the building’s classification prior to the issue of a final certificate for occupation and use.

iFLY Gold Coast is expected to open commercially in late January/early February.
