Final March I truly did it, I jumped (or obtained pushed) out of an airplane at 13 000ft! Once I wrote up my bucket record the earlier 12 months, skydiving was one of many very first issues I famous. After seeing the Flo-Rida video Wild One I had my thoughts set on doing my skydive at Skydive Dubai and nowhere else.


Skydive Dubai

The night time earlier than I used to be tossing and tuning in my sleep considering this have to be the dumbest thought I’ve ever had in my life and that I’ve solely paid half of my deposit…. so I nonetheless have time to rooster out. I had even Googled “Skydive Dubai accident” or “Skydive Dubai dying”. I confirmed there was no such incident since they opened four years in the past so don’t fear – if these search phrases introduced you right here then you definately’ve obtained your reply proper there : ) make sure to e-book early although.

SkyDiving Dubai is a really fashionable website. It’s a really busy place and it’s positively noticeable from the employees’s behaviour. Don’t anticipate any type of nurturing or reassurance. Simply suck it up and get on with it. There isn’t any room for second guessing that’s for positive.


Right here comes the scariest a part of the entire thing for me – signing my life away. Who does that willingly?! You must actually put your signature agreeing that if something occurs to you, they take zero duty and I imply ZERO. Even within the act of negligence or by chance pushing you out of the aircraft…. oops! I signed it anyway and stated my prayer. Keep in mind that each one that’s ever performed a skydive has signed this paper so don’t let that be the deal breaker.

After round one hour of ready, it was my flip to get prepped and there comes Anouk – the lady who I had no alternative however to belief with my life. The intro coaching is fairly transient and the principle factor to remove is “legs bent again and chin up!”. With the tandem bundle comes a video and loads of pictures. They embrace some pre bounce interview footage and your response after you land as effectively.


  • – I had seen some people online mentioning that its hard to breathe when falling. Don’t worry it’s not, unless the reason for the difficulty is because of a panic attack. Otherwise it feels  exactly like speeding in your car with the window open.
  • – Make sure you have a light breakfast, the last thing you want is to feel or be sick up in the air.Skydive Dubai
  • – Bring shoes! It sounds obvious but when you’re packing for a trip to Dubai, the last thing you think about is sneakers.
  • – It’s ok to wear contact lenses as you receive a transparent eye mask.

Comment below if you have any questions. The tandem package cost £350 including everything (1,999AED). It’s pretty steep but if you’re going to do it, you may as well do it right. I’d recommend SkyDive Dubai.
