The 9th FAI World Cup of Canopy Piloting will now take place at Skydive Dubai Palm DZ. The competition dates are November 27 to December 1. The competition has been relocated from our Desert Campus due to technical reasons.

Due to the relocation of this competition to the Palm DZ, slot priority will be given to athletes who will need to train just before the competition takes place. Palm DZ operations team strongly advises licensed skydivers to head to our Desert Campus DZ.

Tandem skydives will continue as scheduled and we look forward to welcoming customers at their pre-selected arrival times.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this causes any of customers. We especially appreciate our fun jumpers understanding and being flexible with these last minute changes.

According to the FAI competition welcome letter, unofficial official training jumps will start soon with the first one taking place on November 18.

Athletes seeking information and updates about the competition should head to the official competition website for information. It can be found at http://www.fai.org/CPWC2017-news.
