Skydive in Dubai with the tandem jump
For those who have never made a parachute jump, the tandem jump is the best way to experience the crazy feeling of a skydive / parachute jump. During a tandem jump you jump together with a professional instructor from the plane above Palm Jumeirah or the desert of Dubai. The instructor is attached to you by a frame and he is the one who decides when you jump, when the parachute opens and he controls the parachute. The landing is also done by the instructor, all you have to do is follow his instructions well and enjoy.
Skydive Dubai has its own airstrip, which is landscaped in the sea, just in front of the impressive skyline of the Dubai Marina. From here you fly to a great height and then jump out of the plane. During your free fall you fall down at an amazing speed of 210 km / h. At a certain height the instructor pulls the rope and opens the parachute and you calmly drop the last part to the ground.
The Skydive Dubai drop zone covers an area of 26,000 square meters. The drop zone is the area that you fly over during the flight by plane and during your skydive jump. 75% of this is water and 25% is land, in particular that of Palm Jumeirah. The landing area of Skydive Dubai has a size of 60 by 700 meters. After your unforgettable jump you can relax in the Skydive Dubai Cafe and watch the other paratroopers landing on the site.
