November is a great month to go flying in a Gyrocopter!

Book your seat for this truly unique experience, where all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the views from the top as our trained pilot takes you around the extraordinary Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab area in our special aircraft, the Gryocopter.

And for the month of November, everyone who books a tandem skydive will receive a special offer for a Gyrocopter flight as well. Each November tandem skydiving customer can purchase one (1) Gyrocopter ticket for 50% off. Instead of AED 999 for a Gyrocopter flight it is AED 500 when you purchase the flight on the same day of your tandem skydive at the Palm DZ.

Flights are available seven days a week, with the first one taking off at 11 am and the last one at 4:30 pm. Please note, the flight schedule could change at the last minute as flying is dependent on weather conditions.

You can book your flight via email, by calling our customer service centre or by showing up at the Palm dropzone. Though we suggest the first two options to avoid any disappointments.

Visit our Gyrocopter page for additional information on safety requirements, price and our sales policies.

Each person will also receive a video and photographs from their flight, so, make sure you smile and give our cameras a wave while you’re up there.
