What is it like to Fly ?
There are three unique sensations when you fly the Flyboard. The most intriguing sensation is the feeling of weightlessness. As soon as sufficient lift is applied, you and the flyboard become weightless and levitate in the air, and even small amounts of force will move or turn you. The second unique sensation is suspended height. Even if you are an airplane or helicopter pilot, few have ever experienced the sensation of being suspended up to three-story high with no visible support from above or beneath your feet. 30 feet may not sound very high but it can seem a lot higher in a flyboard, and the unique perspective from that height is incredible. The third unique sensation is the absolutely amazing freedom of movement. Once you learn how to fly, you can travel in any direction, at any height, and at any speed that the system will carry you.
