Members of Paramus Regional Chamber of Commerce Take Flight at New Jersey’s first iFLY Indoor Skydiving Facility
PARAMUS, N.J., May 11, 2018 – Members of the Paramus Regional Chamber of Commerce participated in an action-filled get-together recently with the help of one of its newest members: iFLY. The facility at 211 State Route 4 in Paramus is the 29th location in the U.S. for iFLY, the world’s largest indoor skydiving operation.
Joshua Braunstein, Sales Manager of iFLY Paramus, kicked off the event with a short introduction before group members suited up in their flight gear and participated in a training and practice session. With iFLY instructor Devin Barillari at their side, members of the Chamber each took turns in the wind tunnel, experiencing true human flight.

The flight experience was exhilarating and thrilling according to chamber members and just as fun to watch. Established in 1951, the Paramus Regional Chamber of Commerce is one of the area’s fastest-growing chambers.
“The Paramus Regional Chamber is quite active and has been very welcoming to us,” said Michael Zanetti, general manager for iFLY Paramus. “It was our pleasure to host this gathering and introduce chamber members to our programming at iFLY while having a great time.”
