Universal City, California (PRWEB) May 19, 2008
Brother and sister indoor skydiving duo are setting their sights high as they look to break the Guinness World Record at 7:30 AM Wednesday, May 21 at iFLY Hollywood at Universal CityWalk. Not yet teenagers, 9 year-old Justin and 12 year-old Kayla Tinucci are making a name for themselves as medal-winning indoor skydivers. Currently the Guinness World Record is set at one hour and 18 minutes and the Tinucci's have the talent and skill to break it.
Now the youngest professional indoor skydivers, the Tinucci kids compete all over the world. After breaking the Guinness World Record, "Team Future," as Justin and Kayla are also known, have dreams to make indoor skydiving an Olympic sport.
"We are looking forward to helping the Tinucci kids fulfill their dream of breaking the Guinness World Record," says Trevor Thompson, Vice President of Operations of iFLY Hollywood. "iFLY Hollywood is the most technologically advanced wind tunnel of its kind featuring transparent air-tight walls, a perfect venue for the public to view this momentous occasion."
iFLY Hollywood simulates free-fall with winds speeds more than 125 miles-per-hour inside a state-of-the-art flight chamber. Elevating "sky-divers" from 3 to 103, flyers can reach as high as 30-feet in the air while getting a breath taking 360-degree panoramic view of Universal CityWalk. The iFLY experience gives flyers of all ages an authentic and intense free-fall sensation.

ABOUT KAYLA AND JUSTIN TINUCCI
Kayla and Justin Tinucci tried indoor skydiving for the first time two years ago thinking it would be a one-time afternoon of fun. Little did anyone know they would be the world's youngest indoor skydiving team. Since dropzones in the United States require jumpers to be 18 years old, Kayla and Justin practice and compete in SkyVenture wind tunnels. Since the wind tunnel duplicates the atmosphere of a "free fall" from an airplane, the Tinuccis have been able to rapidly develop their skydiving skills. The Tinucci kids are also ambassadors for an initiative called "Launch My Dream," sponsored by Amazing Kids (http://www.amazing-kids.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children realize their full potential.
