Allow Human Body Flight in Yonkers, NY

This petition had 511 supporters

We all want to fly. We dream of it from the time we are children. Seeded deep within our psyche, we incorportate it into play, into cartoons and movies. We stare at birds and clouds and long to float. We age, but the desire still remains. A few will make it a reality by skydiving, base jumping or becoming a pilot. But for most, it remains lodged in the Realm of Imagination.

Do you want to fly? Hover like a hummingbird? Float like Charlie and Uncle Joe in Wonka's Choclolate Factory? Well, you don't have to search for those elusive fizzy lifting drinks anymore.

iFly has changed all that.

Enter the chamber. Lift your legs and spread your wings. Within moments, you become part of the air. Weightless. Flying.

Currently, iFly has tunnels all over the US and even the world. People travel from hours, states, countries away to experience the feeling of freedom from gravity. Now, they are looking to bring it to Yonkers, NY - right off the NYS Thruway and only 20 minutes from NYC. For those who have not ever experienced indoor skydiving, we have attached a video from one of the international tunnels so you can see the possibility.

The proposal is to nestle the building on the hill at the north end of Ridge Hill Boulevard, across from the northern parking garage and near the the condos.

It is up to the City Counsel. We are trying to show them that it will bring tourism, business and prestige to the City of Yonkers, making it a destination for all ages, from 4 to 80. Everyone can do it.

We ask again, do you want to fly? Whether you are a first timer, a student, a child at heart, a skydiver, we need your help. If you think you will go to iFly, even once, please help us.

Please sign this and enter our world of pure imagination.
