Seeing as summer is almost here, beginning April 1, 2018, operations at the Desert Campus DZ location only will start earlier, each day.

The dropzone will operate from 6.30 am to 3 pm, with the first planeload scheduled for 7 am. The Desert Campus is open from Tuesday to Sunday and is closed on Monday. All timings are weather dependent.

Please note, tandem skydiving operations at the Desert Campus will stop after April 30.

Located on the outskirts of Dubai, the Desert Campus DZ is a one-stop destination that offers experiences that last a lifetime. It is frequented by tandem customers, experienced skydivers and those looking to learn how to skydive solo or progress beyond an A-license.
