Taking off from the heliport, located at the Dubai Police Academy (near the Mall of the Emirates on Sheikh Zayed Road) this flight takes in the Burj Al Arab Hotel, down the shoreline to the Palm Jumeirah Islands and the World Islands. A helicopter ride is the only way to truly appreciate the scale of the World Islands, a testament to Dubai's architectural marvel, stretching far out into the open sea.

Next, you'll fly deeper into the heart of the city. There, towering above everything else, is the Burj Khalifa - the world's tallest building and a true Dubai crown jewel! The beaches, corniche, and a few of the city's most prominent skyscrapers are all in view as you soar over Dubai's beach – the Corniche – and through the Dubai Canal. With the entire city spread out below you, the sight is nothing short of epic!
