The Best Skydivers in the world

on your door Step.

Upon the high demand of sports in the Middle East H.E. Nasser Al Neyadi, in 2009, proposed a skydiving school in Dubai.

The skydiving school is now Skydive Dubai Desert Campus Drop Zone (DZ). It is located just outside of Margham, which is 35 km away from the heart of Dubai.
With the world’s leading instructors at hand, why not come and see for yourself what it is like to skydive solo by going through our Accelerated Free Fall program?

Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) is a training program that is a combination of ground school and training jumps.
Training starts with ground school, in which the student learns everything to undertake a safe skydive.
Then a series of training jumps follows which are designed to build and guide the student’s knowledge and skills to fully prepare him/her to skydive safely alone.

For the first few jumps two instructors will accompany the student.
As you advanced to the next level one instructor will only accompany the student and then gradually,
when a student shows sufficient knowledge and skill, he or she will be cleared to jump without supervision.

What is the process to become a licensed skydiver?
The first thing you need to do is to take our Accelerated Free Fall course (AFF). This is where our instructors teach you to skydive, after this course you can start working towards your A-license, you can click this link to read more about it.
What is the aff course?
The Accelerated Free Fall course is made up of a 5-6 hour classroom session of theory and 8 categories of jumps. Each category has objectives that need to be completed in free fall to move the next one. 5 of the categories are done with 2 instructors and 3 of them are done with 1 instructor. After these 8 categories are completed you are free to ‘self supervise’, which is jumping alone, but you won’t yet have a license.
How much is the aff course?
You have 2 options for payment for AFF. You can either pay upfront and receive 1 free skydive (up to 1500 AED Value), or you can pay level by level. See our price list for the exact prices.
What does it mean to have a license in skydiving?
Once you have a license, you can jump with other licensed skydivers and jump your own equipment!
From what altitude will I jump?
All AFF jumps are done from 13000 feet. You will also be required to do two low altitude jumps to get your A license, one from 5500 feet and one from 3500 feet.
Does weather affect jumping?
The weather does affect us in skydiving. Here at the Desert campus it is mainly the wind, if it goes over 17 mph then it is no longer safe for students to jump.To see what the weather is like you can go to or look at our Facebook page for regular updates.
Is there a weight restriction?
Yes. 230 lbs. is the weight restriction for the student program.
Is there an age requirement?
Yes. You must be at least 16 years old to begin your AFF course. If you are at least 16 and under 18 you must provide NOTARIZED PARENTAL CONSENT. If you are over 18 please provide your ID.
How long will it take to complete my 8 aff jumps?
There are many factors involved in this such as your skills, how often you come to the drop zone and the weather. We say to leave around 1-2 weeks to complete your AFF course.
How long will it take me to complete my A license?
Again there are many factors involved, like how often you come, the wind and instructor availability. So we say best case scenario is a month but more often it takes around two.
When can I jump at Skydive Dubai The Palm?
As SD The Palm is located near the city and the landing area surrounded by water you have to a have at least a D license and a minimum of 500 jumps in order to jump there.
How do I schedule a course?
We offer ground schools twice a week , with maximum 6 people per class. Give us a call or e-mail us at least a week in advance to reserve your spot.
After I take a ground school when will I skydive?
It is possible that you could do your 1st AFF Level on the same day as your ground school. If daylight or weather doesn’t comply, then we will try to get you in the air as soon as possible. However, we require that you make your first skydive within 2 weeks of your ground school date for safety reasons. If you go beyond the 2 week limit you will need to retake the Ground School Course for 700 AED.

The cumulative number of jumps of the staff of Skydive Dubai is well over 220,000 jumps!!!
