Skydive Dubai sets a new World Record by BASE Jumping from the top of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building
Skydive Dubai, a leader in extreme skydiving, has broken yet another Guinness World Record in less than a month for BASE jumping off the very tip of The Burj Khalifa. Skydive Dubai sponsored Soul Flyers World Champions Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet took the first leap off The Burj Khalifa, 828 meters tall, on Saturday 21th April 2014, claiming the new Guinness World Record Title of the Highest BASE Jump from the Tallest Building, exhibiting their astonishing base jumping skills. The jump from The Burj Khalifa was possible with the construction of a 3 X 1 meter platform at the very top of the pinnacle and was a mammoth of a task in itself. The structure which was spotted by residents and tourists recently, took a total of 3 days for installation with challenges faced due to weather constrictions limiting the time available for construction. Throughout the whole period, the highest safety measures were put in place to ensure the pinnacle did not get damaged. “On behalf of the entire team and myself, I would like to thank H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, The Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of Dubai Sports Council for giving us the opportunity in making this project a reality. Skydive Dubai has become a pioneer in regards to aerial sports and will continue to strive in setting more new world records.” said His Excellency Nasser Al Neyadi, President of the Aero Sport Federation and Chairman of Skydive Dubai. Fred and Vince had to go through a series of training in Switzerland by base jumping off Lauterbeunnen Mountain which is almost the same height as The Burj Khalifa. Fred and Vince continued to condition themselves with BASE jumping out of helicopters in Dubai to ensure they were ready for the leap off of the world’s tallest building. “This was the jump of a lifetime and an achievement of three years of hard training. I am glad we landed successfully, accomplishing a lifelong dream.” stated Fred Fugen. “This was my best jump by far. It was a dream come true.” continued Vince Reffet. Skydive Dubai, with the support of Emirates Aerosports Federation, is one of the world’s premier skydiving locations right in the heart of Dubai City, with a desire for breaking world records. Since Skydive Dubai’s launch in 2010, they have provided a platform for extreme athletes to express their passion, train hard and achieve their dreams. This was highlighted earlier in April when they broke the Guinness World Record for the smallest parachute jump. “As always, Skydive Dubai prides itself on the 100% safety record and the Burj Khalifa Jump is no exception”, said Alan Gayton, General Manager, Skydive Dubai, The Palm Drop Zone. “This success is due to the ‘Practice make perfect’ method of training that we always follow and the 100% dedication of everyone working on this project”. Skydive Dubai and The Burj Khalifa are symbols of Dubai’s exceptional growth over the past 30 years as well as an example of International Corporation and exceptional human talent, aspiration and inspiration. Dubai Film Production in association with Skydive Dubai is currently working on a short documentary focus on the project as a whole which will be released soon. All the shooting of this spectacular jump was carried out by Dubai Film Production. Media and brands are requested to contact us at pr@skydivedubai.ae

Skydive Dubai to Break the Record by Landing the World’s Smallest Parachute
Extreme Canopy Flight (XCF) is Skydive Dubai’s vision of making skydiving history by setting new limits for human flight by breaking the Guinness World Record for the smallest parachute jump. With the support of Emirates Aero Sports Federation and Skydive Dubai, Project XCF’s training and record attempts are going to take place at Skydive Dubai the Palm Dropzone in Dubai on Saturday 5th April from 3 – 7pm. The record breaking attempt is going to be performed by extreme athlete Ernesto Gainza, a test pilot for NZ Aerosports and Icarus canopies and professional stunt man with more than seven thousand skydives. The project will be documented from inception to successful completion. XCF jumps are all performed under highly experimental conditions and using specially designed prototype equipment. Currently expert skydivers use parachutes that range in size from 80-200 square feet and over the last decade the development of high-performance canopy sizes have averaged between 70-90 square feet. Ernesto aims to land a parachute of 35 square feet, less than half the size of the smallest parachutes currently being jumped. With the significant reduction in size the opening, flight and landing characteristics change dramatically resulting in a spinning malfunction which could cause an almost instantaneous loss of consciousness, as such Ernesto needs to have the right mental and physical preparation to be able to react decisively to any situation. Across the global skydiving community, a very small percentage of competitive canopy pilots have the skill to fly these canopies successfully. Ernesto Gainza stated, “Project XCF is the product of a man’s dream to fly and land the world’s smallest parachute. Regardless of the size of the challenge, a dream will always be a dream if there is no determination to make it reality.” The current unofficial record for the smallest parachute landed is held by Luigi Cani who jumped a 37 square foot canopy on January 1st 2008. Luigi was the inspiration for this project. Skydive Dubai provides a platform to fulfill dreams. In addition to granting Ernesto’s dream of breaking the world record of XCF jumps, Skydive Dubai will also be granting the wishes of three kids with incurable diseases through their collaboration with The Make-A-Wish Foundation® United Arab Emirates, an international non-profit organization with 38 active offices dedicated to fulfilling the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The event on Saturday 5th April is open to all who wish to come and see history being made. The day will be filled with a lot of entertainments for all ages.
