Night Jump Planned For March 29

Skydive Dubai has scheduled a night jump at our Desert Campus DZ on Thursday, March 29, for licensed skydivers only.

Minimum license required to participate will be a USPA B license, or it’s equivalent, and 100 jumps. The jump ticket price will be AED 500 per jump ticket. There will be two skydives for each participant: one hop-n-pop and one full altitude.

Please note that booking priority will be given to those who currently hold a USPA C license.

Night lights will be available for purchase from our Desert Campus DZ gear store closer to the date of the night jump.

    Steps to take now to confirm your booking for the March 29 night jump:

1. Make sure your skydiving license is or will be valid.
2. Review the requirements to participate
3. Use the form below to express your interest in participating to our manifest staff
4. After you receive a reply back from our manifest staff giving you the okay to participate, you will need to pay for your two jump tickets on or before March 22.

* Please note that this event is only for licensed skydivers. Those without a skydiving license are requested to not use the form below to contact staff and to kindly head to our Contact Us page to message our staff. We appreciate your understanding.

As the name suggests night jumps are skydives performed in the night, in the dark. The skill-level required to execute these jumps correctly and safely is high. Which is why they can only be performed by licensed skydivers who hold a USPA B-License or higher.

In addition to a lot of experience, night jumps also require special night jump equipment, like a lighted altimeter and specific night-vision goggles. A flashlight is also a pretty handy tool to have in your kit.

Those who would like to skydive in the night, must first learn to skydive solo. And you can do that by signing up for the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) First Jump Course at our Desert Campus DZ.
