Here’s a thorough guide on planning and booking tandem Skydive Dubai & Prepare for one of the most adrenaline-pumping experiences of your life now.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
Dubai Sky Dive hasn’t had any serious accidents related to Tandem skydiving. However, Three incidents took place in the past, one for the experienced sky diver and the other one plane deviated.
Book your tandem sky diving experience in Skydive Dubai’s premium location for AED 2,199 or Skydive Dubai’s standard location for AED 1,699. Book at least 3-4 days prior for higher chances of getting preferred timings and to prepare yourself well.
The time stated in your booking confirmation email is not your skydive time but your arrival time. If you have chosen the 10.00 am slot, please be there on or before 10.00 am. The entire experience will last roughly 3.5 to 4 hours, starting from the time you check-in at our premises until you collect your USB with memorabilia.
Skydiving is highly dependent on the weather. Factors like low-lying clouds, fast wind speed, poor visibility and even rain can postpone or even cancel our skydiving experience. In the instance of such a situation Dubai Sky Dive team will put your skydiving experience on hold. You will be updated about the weather and if there is no sign of improvement you will be reschedule it on the next available date & slot. If you are unable to do so the refund will be given. Skydive Dubai reserves the rights to close the premises without any warning. If so, you will be contacted by them via email or phone for a cancellation or reschedule. And Sky Dive Dubai will not responsible for any expenses suffered by the participant in such instances.
If you prefer to skydive with a woman because of religious or cultural reasons, state your request at the time of check-in. Dubai Sky Dive team will try their best to fulfill your request.
A camera flyer will accompany every tandem participant to capture every minute of the skydive experience. Dubai tandem packages (both locations) include the charges for photos and an edited video. Instagrammers can purchase a special video edit (at palm drop zone) for an extra fee of 100 AED to post on their Instagram handle. If Dubai Sky Dive cameral flyer weren’t unable to record the entire experience due to camera malfunction or the video is not up to the standards, you will be either refunded 200 AED or given a chance to re-jump. Please keep in mind that this will be decided by Skydive Dubai’s management and the decision taken is final.

He conveys his love for adventure by advising everyone that gathering experiences is better than gathering wealth.

Previously, the minimum age for skydiving was 18 years. Luckily adventurous kids can now give a try as Skydive Dubai has bought the age limit down to 12 years. However, there are two criteria that needs to be fulfilled. Firstly, any children between the ages of 12 and 17 will require a parent or legal guardian to sign the Parent Consent Tandem Waiver. Secondly, the parent or legal guardian who signed will need to accompany them on the day of the skydive. There are set of other procedures that must be followed. The child will have to bring along an identification with photo and fulfill the weight standards (90 kg or below for females and 100 kg or below for males).
