Skydiving in Dubai
Things to do in Dubai such as Hysteria in the Dubai Mall, some of Wild Wadi’s rides, some of Orbi Dubai’s virtual reality programs, XLine Dubai Marina cause a surge of the adrenaline. But of the foregoing, none can eclipse nor compare with skydiving in Dubai in this connection. And good for inexperienced skydivers no prior skydiving experience is required, the skydiving destination notwithstanding.
If you’re not good at skydiving, there’s a way to skydive suited to you — the tandem skydiving. The tandem skydiving is a very popular way for first-time skydivers to skydive. You have nothing to fear as you’re tethered to an experienced tandem instructor. In this way, you relax and enjoy.

Inevitable Dubai Laws
Skydive Dubai is a professional skydiving company that manages skydives in Dubai. It lets you, among other things, experience the thrill of free fall from the height of 13,000 feet above the Palm Jumeirah or the desert at over 120 miles per hour as a professional or a beginner. Clearly, no sight of the Palm can beat that you’d get plunging over the Jumeirah Archipelago.
Want more adventure than merely being tethered to an instructor? The solo skydiving course called Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is for you. In this course, you’re given lessons and then made to take eight skydives. The course should equip you to skydive efficiently and safely. It has eight levels, each consists of a skydive and a compulsory set of manoeuvers. Two instructors accompany you in the first three levels, while only one does so in the remaining ones.
The course starts with the First Jump Course (FJC) which covers such topics as basic safety procedures, equipment, body position in freefall, canopy deployment and control, aircraft procedures, and landing, all of which take 6-8 hours.
When this is completed, the next step would be to board the plane, fly to the height of 12,500 feet accompanied by two instructors and dive from the aircraft.
If you want to take things further, you could go for a USPA A licence which means that after taking the course, you would be able to jump at any drop zones around the world, without supervision, among other things. Contact Skydive Dubai Desert Campus for this. You should know that the venue for the AFF Course is Skydive Dubai’s Desert Campus.
Having a great experience such as a diversion is one thing and filming or photographing it is another. One of the greatest use of high-end phones today is photography. Consider the coinage of the word “selfie”. At Sky Dubai, your dive experience is important to the management as it is important to you. In this way, the height notwithstanding, ingenious skydiving camera persons capture every moment of your dive. Added to that, pictures are in high resolution, so that your memory is made indelible in good representation.

ElsMSpicer (England, United Kingdom)
If you are even considering to do this, book it I promise you won’t regret it one bit. The whole process was so smooth and easy from check in to landing. I loved every moment of my skydive the views are amazing and my instructor Ray put me completely at ease he was so friendly and professional.
I looked at a few people complain about ‘rude check in staff’. This was not the case at all. They were all so friendly and I couldn’t fault the check in at all. Once you check in and pay the balance you get given a ticket which they then call, you we only really had to wait 20 mins although they said 40-45 before we were called and getting kitted up. It was such a smooth process for everything.
The photos and videos that are included in the price are such good photos of high res, the camera guy does an amazing job and tells you to look at him the whole time you’re free falling to make sure they get the best photos of you. All the staff are excited for you and make sure you have the best time.
The Instagram video we didn’t purchase but was only around 100 AED more so in the grand scheme of thing is pretty cheap.
I had around 100 photos and the video of my skydive and I couldn’t be happier (it’s includes in the price). I have such amazing memories of the incredible day.
Me and my partner can’t stop talking about it!
Thank you so much for an amazing day!!!

Professional, friendly, amazing
From start to finish the experience was professional. Staff were friendly, they explained everything well, I felt totally safe and secure which is the most important thing. The jump itself was unbelievable those views can’t be got anywhere else in the world. The video and editing was quick and provides me with a fantastic memory. Highly recommended if in Dubai.
