Changes in 2018 for Licensed Skydivers at the Palm DZ

Starting Jan. 1, 2018, all skydivers new to Palm Dropzone will be required to hold a USPA D-license (or equivalent) and have documented a minimum number of 1,000 skydives.

This change is due to Palm DZ unique location and planned construction projects.

Skydivers already jumping at the Palm Dropzone will be required to have USPA D-License (or it’s equivalent) plus a minimum of 800 skydives.

It is highly recommended that all skydivers hold insurance policies that cover both first party and third party liability.

We also highly recommend that those who are traveling to our Palm DZ outside of the UAE to message manifest first with your planned dates before you book your flight and hotel room.

All of the new changes will begin January 1.

Those who opted in to receive our licensed skydivers newsletter received an email today with links to download all the new briefing information, briefing map, and the new waiver. Sign up here to receive future emails from us regarding operations updates and more.
