Looking for an escape from the bustling city? Try an out-of-the-ordinary skydive location in Dubai! The Desert Campus drop zone in Dubai is just what you're looking for.
Feast your eyes on an endless expanse of golden sand dunes and exotic flora and fauna indigenous only to desert landscapes. When you jump from more than 10,000 ft in the sky, the glorious outskirts of Dubai will captivate your mind. Be prepared to experience a serene and fantastic view from the top.
The Desert Campus drop zone is located on the Dubai-Al Ain Road and is open from 08:00 AM between Tuesday to Sunday; it is closed on Mondays. Try and get to your skydiving station a little before your assigned slot to ensure you have adequate time to fill out the necessary paperwork and complete the standard health checkup.
Next up, you’ll meet your tandem skydive instructor and attend a short training session where you will learn about the entire process of skydiving. You’ll be taught about the right body positions to adapt, how the harness and parachute deployment process works and more. After the briefing, you’ll be strapped into the harness, ready for the tandem skydive.
Here comes the fun part! You’ll now be escorted towards the aircraft for a short, 20-minute ride before you get into position to skydive. Attached to your instructor, you both will be seated at the edge of the aircraft, feeling the cool breeze against your face. Your instructor will ask you to get into position and 3...2...1, you dive!
Prepare to face emotions and an adrenaline rush like never before. You will freefall for about 60 seconds where everything will feel like you’re on a whirlwind rollercoaster. Next, your instructor will deploy the parachute after which you’ll slowly glide in the air, allowing you to take in the fantastic views of Dubai and its desert. The landing takes about 5-7 minutes after which you will safely touch base.
