Skydive Dubai partners with Monviso’s “Take Water. Give Life” initiative to take giving to new heights
Skydive Dubai, the company that has developed two of the world’s foremost skydiving locations, has partnered with Monviso, Dubai’s premier Alpine mineral water brand and its “Take Water. Give Life” initiative to raise funds for Al Jalila Foundation’s lifesaving humanitarian work. A global philanthropic organisation whose mission is to transform lives through medical education and research, Al Jalila Foundation was founded by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice-President and Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai. It is fully funded by the generosity of donors. Designed by Monviso, the “Take Water. Give Life” initiative donates AED 1 to Al Jalila Foundation for every 1 liter sold by programme participants, and now Skydive Dubai is among the most high-profile of those participants. Keeping in mind both brands’ focus on providing customers a safe, premium experience, Skydive Dubai has also chosen Monviso as its exclusive water supplier. The two companies’ collaboration began in 2014. Stefano Iorini, Monviso CEO said: “Skydive Dubai’s decision to partner with Monviso and support our initiative is a milestone, not just because of the charity fundraising potential of gaining a new prominent programme participant but also because of who Skydive Dubai is, the story of its inception, and what it has represented since its launch. Skydive Dubai is a destination, an experience, and a national symbol of excellence all at once. It represents the best of extreme aerial sports practiced safely. We’re thrilled about partnering with Skydive Dubai to give the height of adventure a whole new added meaning.” As a brand, Skydive Dubai strives to provide its customers with an extraordinary experience that is both unmatched and of world-class standards. In Monviso, we believe we have found a brand that shares those principles, thereby helping lay the foundation for a solid partnership. We’re especially delighted about being able to participate in Monviso’s ‘Take Water. Give Life’ campaign that directly contributes to Al Jalila Foundation, in addition to boosting its sustainability agenda of recycling empty plastic bottles. We look forward to a great partnership. The initiative’s objective is to attract institutions, companies, clinics, sport academies, and individuals and to turn an essential like water into becoming the driving force to do something good and to unite people in one cause. In line with Dubai’s vision to be the smartest city in the world, “Take Water. Give Life” is supported by the Monviso mobile app that allows customers to place orders online conveniently. From 1 January 2017 to 1 September 2017, Monviso has donated the equivalent of 81,751 liters (AED 81,751) to support Al Jalila Foundation’s goal to save lives. The programme is growing rapidly, with 51 organizations across 11 sectors already participating in it. These participants include retailers, hospitality venues, sports clubs, as well as online orders placed directly on the Monviso website. Monviso, like Skydive Dubai, is a forward-looking, world-class brand with a global consciousness. “Take Water. Give Life” also has a sustainability aspect. Monviso will collect and recycle the empty plastic bottles from various locations, then sell the recycled plastic and donate its net returns to Al Jalila Foundation.

Night Jump Planned For March 29
Skydive Dubai has scheduled a night jump at our Desert Campus DZ on Thursday, March 29, for licensed skydivers only. Minimum license required to participate will be a USPA B license, or it's equivalent, and 100 jumps. The jump ticket price will be AED 500 per jump ticket.

Night lights will be available for purchase from our Desert Campus DZ gear store closer to the date of the night jump. Steps to take now to confirm your booking for the March 29 night jump: 1. Make sure your skydiving license is or will be valid. 2. Review the requirements to participate 3. Use the form below to express your interest in participating to our manifest staff 4. After you receive a reply back from our manifest staff giving you the okay to participate, you will need to pay for your two jump tickets on or before March 22. * Please note that this event is only for licensed skydivers. Those without a skydiving license are requested to not use the form below to contact staff and to kindly head to our Contact Us page to message our staff. We appreciate your understanding. Additional resources for skydivers preparing for a night jump: http://www.dropzone.com/safety/General_Safety/Skydiving_at_Night_570.html [123-contact-form i2629691] As the name suggests night jumps are skydives performed in the night, in the dark. The skill-level required to execute these jumps correctly and safely is high. Which is why they can only be performed by licensed skydivers who hold a USPA B-License or higher. In addition to a lot of experience, night jumps also require special night jump equipment, like a lighted altimeter and specific night-vision goggles. A flashlight is also a pretty handy tool to have in your kit. Those who would like to skydive in the night, must first learn to skydive solo.
