The Desert Campus Drop Zone

4.7

Embark on the ultimate skydiving experience in Dubai by booking the Tandem Skydive. Since this is one of the few skydives offered that doesn't require prior experience in the field, you can truly make the most of this in the most hassle free manner. With the choice of two very different and unique drop zones where you can skydive, this truly is the best outdoor skydiving experience in the city!

Highlights

  • Strap in with a world class instructor and experience the hair raising, pulse quickening feeling of freefall at over 120 miles an hour from a height of 13,000 ft!
  • Have the entire dive documented by a professional camera flyer who will accompany you
  • Take home photos and a specially edited video of your sky dive after the fact to commemorate this once in a lifetime experience.

Your Experience

A tandem skydive is experienced while strapped in with a partner, generally an experienced instructor who will take you through the motions. It is like this that you experience the exhilaration of jumping from a moving plane at 13, 000 ft, not to mention the 60-second free fall that will follow. Sounds scary and exciting at the same time but don't worry, you'll be int he best possible hands.

SkyDive Dubai is the biggest name in adventure sports in the city. Having taken the lead in terms of providing high-quality services when it comes to aerial sports, they have developed two incredible locations in Dubai offering the most awe-inspiring views as the setting for your once in a lifetime experience flight experience. In the next step of the booking, you will be able to choose between which of the two locations you want your experience to be in. The premium location offered by SkyDive Dubai is the Palm Drop Zone and the standard location is the Desert campus, set outside the city.

On the day of your reservation, you will have to make your way to one of these locations. After registration and waiver forms are filled out, and your BMI is calculated for safety reasons, a spot for you will be reserved on one of SkyDubai's aircrafts. About half an hour before you board the plane, you will be introduced to your instructor who will walk you through the whole procedure, give you a safety briefing, walk you through the best positions for the free fall that is soon to come and help you put on your harness. You will be accompanied by a camera flyer who will interview you prior to boarding (be sure to smile every time you see them!).

You will then be taken to the boarding area, taking pictures all the while, as safety checks are conducted on all equipment and the aircraft itself. You will then board your aircraft and, as you ascend, get to marvel at breathtaking views of the surrounding areas. The ride on the way up is 20 minutes long and right before you reach exit altitude, a whopping 13,000 ft or 4,000 m, you will be harnessed to the front of your instructor, checked over once more before jumping from the aircraft. You will free fall for a full 60 seconds, but do try to smile for the camera as you do! Your parachute will finally deploy at 6000 ft, following which you will have up to five minutes of a comparatively relaxing parachute ride, allowing you to get your bearings and admire the incredible views of the surrounding areas as you descend.

The rest is better experienced than told, but we can guarantee, you're not bound to forget it any time soon!

The best part is the free fall which is about 60 seconds and then for about 2-3 minutes we were gliding in the air like an eagle
