If you've ever wished you could fly, now you can!
iFLY Indoor Skydiving in Scottsdale is teaming up with us for a Smart Shopper Deal of the Day!
When you first come in, you watch an instructional video, learn hand signals and the perfect body placement for flight. Once you're suited up, you head in with an instructor and get two minutes of flight time.
Our Deal of the Day is on Flight School, that is for kids ages 4-16. In Flight School, you get five minutes of flight time for the price of $69.95. However, they're offering a buy one, get one deal for Smart Shoppers! For $69.65, you can book a class and get 5 minutes of flight time and the second flyer can get 5 minutes of flight time for free!
You have to call Thursday, November 9, to book classes either on Mondays or Saturdays. You have until December 9 to use the deal.

Plus, November is a great time to fly because a portion of the proceeds will go toward their All Abilities Night, where people with special needs will get their chance to take flight. You will have the option to donate by getting an additional flight for $19.95.
On December 3, iFLY will be celebrating International Day of Persons with Disabilities with their All Abilities Night, and on December 4, the funds raised in November will be given as a check to Ability 360.
