Special Olympic athletes “fly” during indoor skydiving session


AUSTIN (KXAN) – Special Olympics athletes will be adding another sport to their repertoire – indoor skydiving.

In honor of National Disabilities Day, iFLY Austin will offer these athletes a discounted price to “fly” in one of their wind tunnels. All Abilities Night is the final event in a month-long partnership to benefit local Special Olympics Texas chapters.

Anyone with special needs can attend the event. The discounted package includes a pre-flight training session, flight gear and two “skydiving” sessions. Specially-trained flight instructors will be on hand to provide accommodations for each individual.
