Published on: 25 Jun 2020

Article updated: July 14, 2020. 

Shoutout to all the licensed skydivers who participated in our Jumps in June days at the Desert DZ! A big thank you for your cooperation under all the new guidelines and restrictions. 

On to some more good news... we couldn’t be happier to announce that our Desert Dropzone will be open every Sunday this July. (i.e. July 5, 12, 19, and 26), and every Wednesday in August (i.e. August 5, 12, 19, and 26). 

The DZ will be open from 5:00 am (for payments only), and skydivers will be able to manifest from 5:30 am onwards. We hope to be wheels up with the first planeload around 6:00 am. As is the norm, operations will continue until the weather plays its part.

Licensed skydivers who need to stay current, or need some coaching, AFF students who are keen to complete their course, or those who simply want to have fun with their sky buddies are all welcome each week.

Unfortunately, we won't be able to accommodate any tandem skydives on these days at the Desert DZ. If you are interested in a tandem skydive please make a booking for one at our Palm Dropzone. 

If you would like to continue your AFF course, license training, or are in need of a recurrency jump, please write to book@skydivedubai.ae with your details, and our team will guide you on the next steps.

We ask that you to take note of the following guidelines if you plan to skydive at the Desert DZ in July.

  • Please update your documents (license and reserve information) prior to manifesting.
  • You can get your rig checked, tagged, and signed off by our rigging team on the day you skydive. 
  • You need to fill in and sign the newly updated solo jumper waiver for the Desert DZ https://waiver.smartwaiver.com/w/5dc1884749af2/web/. (It was updated with new information in June.) 
  • You will be able to purchase jump tickets on the day you skydive. 
  • Please know that priority will be given to those who are not eligible to jump at the Palm DZ.
  • No cash payments will be allowed. Only card payments will be accepted.

As you know your health and safety are our number 1 priority, and we will continue to work in-line with the guidelines provided by the Dubai Health Authority to uphold that.

Skydive Dubai staff and personnel have been trained to carry out all the necessary precautions and will also undergo the required checks before we begin operations each day.

Please note...

  • Your temperature will be checked before you enter our facility.
  • You are required to wear a face mask at all points of time and maintain strict levels of hygiene during your visit.
  • Unfortunately, no accompanying visitors/friends/family will be allowed inside our facility. 
  • Please maintain a distance of 2 meters between yourself and fellow customers and staff at all points.
