PARAMUS, N.J. — Construction on the indoor skydiving facility at the corner of Route 4 and Forest Avenue in Paramus is expected to be complete in April 2018, according to the i FLY website.

The project is being manufactured by SkyVenture , the pioneer in wall-to-wall vertical wind tunnels. It was founded by a group of skydivers, placing the first tunnel in Orlando, Fla. in 1999. Since the early days, SkyVenture has become the most popular wind tunnel manufacturer in the world.

Until then, here's what you need to know about iFLY Paramus.

LIMITATIONS: Flyers must be at least 3 years old, and weigh less than 300 pounds. Those more than 260 pounds must contact the facility before flying. Those who are pregnant or have suffered shoulder dislocations should not fly, iFLY says.

AIR TIME : iFLY recommends between 2 and 6 minutes of flight time per person. The first few flights are about understanding the basics of flying your body. The entire experience can last between 1 and 2 hours. You'll fly at least twice.

COST: You're looking at $60 for 2 minutes and $110 for 4 minutes. iFLY says you'll be paying less as you buy more tunnel time.

WHERE ELSE CAN I FLY? iFLY opened a facility in Westchester, N.Y. in 2015, and another in Long Island is coming this year. The tunnels are the same size
