Step 1

What is tandem skydiving?

Tandem skydiving is a safe way to experience sky diving where you attached with an experienced instructor from start to the end. The tandem skydiving instructor is in- charge of controlling the equipment, this allows you to enjoy the experience and take in the beauty without worrying about controlling your movements. This is ideal because you don’t have to learn to skydiving.



Step 2

Checking your eligibility

Height and weight are two major deciding factors of your eligibility to try tandem skydiving. Additionally, a certain level of fitness should also be maintained by you to ensure a hassle-free landing for you and your instructor. If you have experienced or going through any serious medical conditions you are required to fill out the ‘Declaration of Fitness’ form before arriving at the Dubai Sky Dive drop zone. Participants should be 12 years of age or older (according to the Gregorian calendar). Your Body Mass Index (BMI) will be the deciding factor and you will be weighed with your shoes and clothes on at the time of check-in for your skydive experience.

Step 3

Sign the waiver & fitness form

Prepare early by downloading the ‘Declaration of Fitness’ and ‘Tandem Waiver’ form. These forms are valid for both skydive locations in Dubai and print it, fill it & sign it.

Skydiving safety facts

This is a question that bogs the mind of the bravest of hearts too. The fear is less because of the risk but more because of the unknown as skydiving is not a part of our daily lives. According to NHTSA and USPA Skydiving is believed to be less risky than driving. Now that’s shocking right? In 2018, roughly 40,000 people have died because of car crashes whereas there has only been 13 deadly skydiving accidents out of approximately 3.3 million jumps (recorded by USPA). The statistics shown below speaks for itself.

How safe Dubai sky diving?

Dubai Sky Dive maintains safety standards in both its equipment and instructors. All tandem Skydiving instructors have faced serious levels of training and certification. This is followed by tough selection processes before they are ready to be an instructor with us. Equipment’s are also up-to-date and are equipped with an AAD (Automatic Activation Device). This device automatically deploys the parachute even in a rare situation when the instructor is unable to perform the action. All the parachutes go through strict checking and are approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Skydive Dubai accidents

Dubai Sky Dive hasn’t had any serious accidents related to Tandem skydiving. However, two incidents took place in the past, one for the experienced sky diver and the other one plane deviated.

On October 2, 2015 a Skydive Dubai plane deviated off the runaway while approaching to land. Luckily, nobody was injured (Source: The national).On April 2015 Majed Al Shuaiby, a Saudi skydiver passed away due to a fatal parachute crash that was caused by his ‘loss of situational awareness’.
