This is the most preferred option by those who are new to skydiving since it is safe, the required preparation is minimal and most of the work in the air is done by your instructor.

Those who opt for tandem skydiving in Dubai go through about 30 minutes of coaching; your instructor tells you what to do before and during your jump. Movements, actions and other instructions, including basic safety rules and guidelines. During the skydive, your instructor controls the jump, the parachute deployment and the landing while you get to enjoy the view!

Skydiving in Dubai Reviews

One staff mentioned, "a roller coaster ride is scarier". And it was TRUE!!! Exhilarating experience!!! Amazing views!!! Cool staff, from the booking center, briefing area, jump crew, and after jump staff!!! Worth it!!! Will definitely do it again!!!
The whole thing was awesome, the guys put me at total ease and I had zero fear, even when standing at the open door on a plane strapped to a man I’d only just met and putting my life in his hands!! Everyone should do a skydive, even just once in their lives.
Flying high in excess of 13 000 feet over the Arabian Desert is great, jumping out of an airplane at that altitude, free-falling for 57 seconds at a speed of 195km/h is a life-changing experience and a must-do for all thrill-seekers, both young and old.
Sherita K
My partners and I did our Skydive during our trip to Dubai and I have to say it was an amazing experience. At the age of 50, it’s another ✔️off my adventure list. They were very organized and professional and explained everything to you at ease!
Pauline Davidson
Had an exciting time at iFly Dubai, the staff was very informing and kind. I recommend getting the VR Package for the ultimate experience. It was great!!!
Dre Poole
The experience was intriguing and exciting. The session was a very short one though. We arrived and did the prerequisite registration and practiced the flying position. The instructors were very professional as well. I strongly recommend this activity.
