Dubai is one of the world’s best skydiving destinations that can offer you an experience of a lifetime.

A skydiving license is not  a must  for beginners

Mostly, beginners normally don’t have the professional licenses to go solo, and they will be accompanied by a licensed sky diving expert. This provides assurance to the divers, knowing that their safety is guaranteed by a professional who takes over the controls and who ensures that you dive and land safely.

Skydiving in Dubai location

There are two locations that Skydive Dubai offers and these are the Desert Campus Drop Zone and the palm Drop Zone. For both of these locations, you will enjoy a superior experience that takes three to four hours, so you have to be prepared to spend a colossal amount of your time at the drop zones. Dives mostly begin at 09.00 AM, and this allows you to play your day appropriately.

Be ready for expert Instructions before  skydiving

Before starting their dives, beginners will be provided with guidelines and instructions that they will follow. On average, this takes about 30 minutes. You will then be put inside a small plane and taken to the skies. While up there, your talented instructor will guide you about what to do, and you will jump out of the plane together. The freefall will be fast and expected to hit 120 miles per hour for 60 seconds. After this, your instructor will deploy the parachute which will help fly you gleefully to the earth. After the parachute is activated, it will take between 6 and 7 minutes before landing takes place. If it interests you, you can fly in a gyrocopter and go high up into the sun-kissed skylines of Dubai.
