If you're still mentally not ready to jump from a plane, take a step towards skydiving, fly in a wind tunnel.
How to fly in a wind tunnel in Dubai
In aerotrube, you will experience a feeling of free fall as if you were parachuting. Here skydivers come up with new tricks and bring them to perfection.

You, too, can learn from your own experience how it is to fall from a great height while remaining on the ground.

How to do?

1. Mirdif is located at some distance from the center. To get here from the Burj Khalifa metro station, take a cab or rent a car to southeast along Al Safa St / D71. At the crossroads, keep to the left and follow signs to the Al Khail Rd / D68. On the D83 / D62 highway, go to Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Rd / E311 and drive along it until you see the center.

2. You will find the IFLY wind tunnel on the first floor, next to the Chili's and I Style Computers shops. As the employees of the service say, people from 3 to 103 years old are permitted to do it.

3. You will be given a uniform and equipment - glasses and a helmet - and they will tell you how to behave inside the tunnel.

4. Rising air currents, moving at a speed of 250 km/h, will keep you in the air. If you already had experience of visiting a wind tunnel, you can practice some rolls, coups and other acrobatic stunts.

5. Upon completion, you will be given a certificate about jumping. This is not just a piece of paper. With it, you can get a 50 dirhams of discount for all the repeated "flights".
