    Dozens of GSU students flocked to the RAC at GSU Thursday night for a chance to experience X-Treme Air.
    X-Treme Air, powered by an inverted DC-3 airplane propeller, allowed the students to feel like they were falling at 120 mph. Students are dressed in a protective jumpsuit, and climb up into an inflatable cage that sits above the propeller.
    When directly over the blasting air, a person hovers in midair. Students were held down by two professionals working in the cage, but the professionals turn flips and tricks while flying around with no restraints.
     X-Treme Air was one of many activities at GSU during the first week welcome.
