Beginning in June 2019, the family visited Spain's first outdoor skydiving simulator Fly4Real by car. We didn't know what to expect, but we came out and feeling like we wanted more! Me? I was afraid at the beginning but in the end, I felt it was a very safe experience.
The instructors were super professional and maybe one day I may actually jump out from a plane in the sky!

The simulator is located at KartCenter Campillos (KartCenter Campillos, Ctra A-384, Km 101, 29320 Campillos, Malaga), just outside the village of Campillos –Which is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes by car from Marbella and Fuengirola and 1 hour from Malaga.
The service was amazingly friendly, we were welcomed by a highly experienced flying specialist, Allan Hewitt, who has 40 years of experience and has jumped over 8000 times. He is the director of www.fly-4-real.com
Next, we went to the simulator, I was very surprised. You get to have 2 minutes of jumping experience –While they explain that in a real-life jump you only get about 50 seconds or maybe 1 minute if you are lucky enough!
The adventure started slowly as they made us watch at the introduction video and then go through everything with an instructor. After this, they gave us special equipment helmet, glasses, earplugs, and special clothing –That’s when your stomach starts asking you if you are nervous.

Next thing we did was warm-up exercises. You see, the simulator represents a hard physical workout and your body needs warming to prevent injuries.
A skydiving simulator allows visitors to fly on a column of air, without a parachute. It simulates the freefall portion of the skydive and is an addictive, exciting and thrilling experience.
It's the perfect way to find out what skydiving feels like without jumping from an aeroplane.
I recommend looking at the family packages because they are good value, the price for families starting from 100 EUR https://www.fly-4-real.com/family-packs/
Spain's first outdoor skydiving simulator opened in the Malaga province On the 1st of May, offering kids and adults the chance to safely enjoy the thrill of flying. This is a very special piece of equipment, as it was used by Tom Cruise to prepare for his skydiving stunts on Mission Impossible: Fallout, before being brought over to Spain.
The centre is located at KartCenter Campillos in the Malaga province, Fly4Real's outdoor simulator is an exciting new addition to the tourist attractions in the area and the very first of its kind in Spain.
Furthermore, due to its location, thrill-seekers can experience a day of adrenaline and excitement by combining the skydiving simulator with karting at Andalusia's longest kart track.
If you think the adventure ends here, then you are positively wrong. The centre records all your flight and later you can buy the video –For the price of 15€- and they also have a competition for “the funniest face”.
On the other hand, if the 2 minutes of flight weren’t enough for you, you can immediately buy an extra flight for 30€.
