Since my home DZ in Thailand is temporarily closed, I spent the Easter weekend at Skydive Dubai Desert Campus with a bunch of similarly “homeless” Singaporean jumpers.
Jump #237: My FIRST cutaway.
Kind of a tandem factory, but also the only full-time DZ in Southeast Asia (unless you have more than 500 jumps), so you’ll still find fun jumpers here. H8ers gonna h8, but there are loads all day, and it’s less than an hour’s drive from Bangkok. Also, USD1 beers, so who’s complaining?!
A last minute trip to deliver my rig to the buyer, so 顺便跳一跳 😉 Having just come back from Dubai and Perth, jumping in Thailand was triply sweet- cheap beer trumps all.
Dropzone review of Skydive Dubai from a noobish skydiver (185 jumps at point of writing). There was a change in management in mid-2016, so don’t expect anything legendary going forward.
For visiting skydivers – All the hotels that I have tried near Thai Sky Adventures (the only fun jumper dz in Thailand).
I finally have the golden ticket! Here are some personal reflections on jumping out of a perfectly good airplane and also a list of my noob mistakes for you fellow beginners out there to avoid. This post is for those thinking of taking their first jump course or getting a skydiving license in Asia.
