How fast will I fall?
The average human body falls at approximately 120 miles per hour, although this can increase or decrease based on body size and position.
How long does the freefall last?
Freefall lasts approximately 60 seconds. After the parachute is deployed, you will then have a relaxing canopy descent lasting four to five minutes.
From what altitude will I fall?
All tandem skydives at both our locations exit from 13,000 feet (4,000m).
Is skydiving safe?
As with any adventure sport, skydiving has an element of risk. However, we minimize this risk by using state-of-the-art training and equipment. Our tandem requirements also help us maintain our safety procedures. All Skydive Dubai equipment is equipped with an automatic activation device (AAD), which will automatically deploy the parachute in the unlikely event that your instructor is unable to do so. All of our skydiving tandem instructors have undergone rigorous selection, training, and certification, and all parachutes are maintained under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rigger supervision. Our impressive fleet of aircraft is maintained to the very highest standards. Your safety really is our primary concern.
