What is tandem skydiving?

Tandem skydiving is also known as tandem parachuting and is the perfect way for beginners to experience skydiving. Since a lot of science goes behind skydiving, beginners or novice skydivers might not remember all these rules. In tandem skydiving, the beginner skydiver is strapped on to a tandem skydiving instructor by a harness. This allows the participant to thoroughly enjoy the experience without worrying about making any wrong moves. The tandem instructor will guide the skydive, control the canopy and land.

The tandem skydiving in Abu Dhabi was initiated by Abu Dhabi Sports Aviation Club and was inaugurated on January 2021. Other kinds of adventurous aviation activities offered too (parasailing & paramotor)
