Why Skydiving is So Special in Dubai

Dubai has some of the most enviable skydive locations in the world. Fancy free-falling through the skies over the picturesque and very iconic Palm Jumeirah Islands. Imagine floating thousands of feet above the fabulous Arabian Desert, taking in the wadis, the dunes, the oases and the flora and fauna from above. Dubai’s year-round sunshine makes it possible to enjoy skydiving and the pristine views it brings.

Skydive Dubai Types

  • Outdoor Skydiving Dubai

Outdoor or ‘real’ skydiving as some people would put it, is all about jumping off an airplane at a great height. Whether you’re a newbie experiencing tandem skydiving, or an experienced, licensed skydiver going solo, you’ll jump off at some of the most picturesque locations in Dubai.

  • Indoor Skydiving Dubai

iFly Dubai indoor skydiving, on the other hand, simulates the free-fall conditions of outdoor skydiving within a vertical wind tunnel. This type of skydiving does not involve open spaces, the sun, the wind or a picturesque destination to drop down to. It involves a wind tunnel that generates powerful gusts of air that floats you above ground. Indoor skydiving is one of the perfect activities in Dubai that helps you to get used to the concept of skydiving. This is especially true for those who haven’t had their first skydiving experience.

Outdoor Skydiving Dubai Options

  • Tandem Skydive Dubai

If you are new to outdoor skydiving, opt for tandem skydiving, where you will be fastened tightly and securely to an instructor. Don’t be nervous if it is your first time tandem skydiving; you’ll be secure as you jump with your instructor from a height of 13,000 feet on your Dubai adventure.

  • Professional Skydiving


Professional skydivers can explore more advanced options such as solo skydiving from different heights. They can also take advantage of multiple forms of professional skydiving such as freefly, canopy, formation, wingsuit and freeload.

Outdoor Skydiving Experience

  • Beginning Your Dive

Whether you’re flying tandem or advanced, your experience begins with filling out necessary documents. After a brief health check-up where your weight, height, and BMI will be measured, you’ll be off on your Dubai adventure of skydiving.  If you need an instructor, one will be appointed to you, who’ll guide you before your skydive. If you are a tandem skydiver, you will have an instructor who’ll not only brief you, but check your harness and attach his or her harness to yours.

  • Boarding the Plane

After a final gear check-up and a photo opportunity in the boarding area, you’re all ready to board the plane. As your plane flies to the diving altitude, be sure to feast your eyes on the immense views of Dubai. It takes about 20 minutes for the plane to get to diving altitude. Be sure to meditate or do whatever you need to do to settle your nerves in these 20 minutes.

  • The Actual Skydive!

Once the plane reaches 13,000 feet, you can drop off by yourself, or drop off with your tandem instructor attached to you. After an adrenalin-jerking freefall of nearly 60 seconds, you’ll be clocking speeds of up to 120 miles per hour. At 6,000 feet, your parachute will deploy.

  • Your Descent

Within the next 5 minutes, you will descend to earth, gently, while feasting your eyes on the spectacular views of the desert, or Palm Jumeirah, or the World Map Islands around you. Your outdoor skydiving experience comes to an end after your touchdown and post-jump interview. Be sure to collect your jump’s video to show off to your friends!

  • Skydive Videos!

You can even have your dive documented by a camera flyer who will accompany you on your jump. The accompanying camera person will also interview you briefly before your jump, and record it your posterity. Remember to smile, for this is the video you’ll be sharing with your friends all over social media soon!

The skyline of Dubai is beautiful from the bird-eye. You can also check out its glory by hopping on the fabulous ferry. Do read the Dubai Ferry guide to know more.

Indoor Skydiving Dubai

Indoor Skydive

If you opt for an indoor skydiving experience, here’s how it works:

  • After a few regulatory health check-ups, you will be signed up for the indoor skydiving experience. You may have to wait your turn, as a lot of people queue up for indoor skydiving.
  • After suiting up, you will enter a vertical wind tunnel that has fans at the top. These fans pull in air through the flight chamber and push the air back down the sides through what’s called the Return Air Towers (RATs).
  • An inlet contractor turns the air from the RATs into the bottom of the tunnel, and from there back up toward the flight chamber.
  • Before the air enters the flight chamber again, the inlet contractor compresses and speeds up the air by reducing the space it occupies. This results in a smooth column of air that enables you to literally fly.

Indoor Skydiving offers you all the excitement of skydiving without any of the risks involved. It’s the best of both worlds, as you get to enjoy skydiving in a safe, controlled environment. Plus, indoor skydiving is a lot cheaper than outdoor skydiving. If you’re short on time and don’t want to spend time on skydiving instruction, indoor skydiving is the way to go. This sport is relatively safer than outdoor skydiving, so it takes very little time to gear up and get going. Also, even kids older than 2 can experience indoor skydiving, which opens up this sport to kids. iFly Dubai has the world’s first double vertical wind tunnel, where you can experience the feeling of weightlessness with sheer adrenaline rushing through your body.
