At iFLY Dubai, experience the thrill of skydiving without the worry or cost of leaping out of a plane.
Your instructor follows you into a vertical wind tunnel with speeds of up to 175 mph (282 kph) after private instruction, and you spend 60 seconds being airborne.
Just for the record, when you leap from a plane, the total free-fall time lasts only forty-five seconds!
This indoor skydiving simulator in Dubai is popular entertainment for both tourists and locals.

What to expect at iFly Dubai
All visitors must wear special skydiving gear before getting anywhere near the wind tunnels.
Then the professional guides at Dubai’s indoor skydiving center teach you some basic flying techniques.
Once you enter the arena, the world’s first double vertical wind tunnel’s powerful jet streams lift you to 4 meters (13 feet) into the air in a controlled environment.
You will feel the wind in your hair, lashing at your goggles, whipping at your jumpsuit.
On your second flight (each iFly Dubai ticket gets you two sessions), you will fly higher – unless you don’t want to.
