A holiday in the vibrant city of Dubai is not complete without experiencing the thrill of skydiving. The feeling of falling from thousands of meters up in the air has attracted crowds of locals and tourists to try out this exciting sport, making it one of the most popular sports in Dubai. Definitely an activity for the adventurous, skydiving brings about an indescribable surge of adrenaline in the skydiver and allows the skydiver to behold the sight of the Dubai city from an eagle’s point of view.
The growing number of clubs and institutions in Dubai that provide courses and opportunities for skydiving is an indication of the popularity of this activity among those visiting Dubai. Even the first timer can enjoy the hair raising thrill of skydiving by first engaging in a Tandem Jump offered by the famous Umm-Al-Quwain Aeroclub.
