Time Out Dubai brings you an awesome new Skydive Dubai video. Watch the footage of their latest stunts including wingsuiting, skydiving and wing walking
Dubaians know full well that their city is a hotbed for thrill seekers from around the world.
There’s something about the stunning aerial views and abundance of skyscrapers that make Dubai a dream location for action sport videographers and adrenaline junkies alike.
And so it is that Skydive Dubai, the go-to company for freefalling at 125 miles an hour, have another of those videos that will make you wonder how there are people out there whose jobs are quite this insane, in the good sense of the word.
They’ve partnered up with UK-based Breitling Wingwalkers to perform an aerobatic feat, challenging even for the most seasoned of professionals.
“I felt that this flight from the start would be very difficult because we were trying to marry together the three different sciences of wingsuiting, skydiving and wing walking,” explained one of Breitling’s team leaders.
“There would be a large variation of speed and everything would be happening on a downward trend.”

Breitling, who are the world’s only aerobatic formation wingwalking team, were joined in the skies by Skydive Dubai’s jumpers, to perform a beautifully synchronized flight and jump.
Watch the video to see how the wingsuiters, parachuters and wingwalkers act in tandem with Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah as a backdrop, looking almost like birds and biplanes ploughing side by side through the skies.
We never tire of seeing the Skydive Dubai team doing their thing over their iconic Palm Drop Zone or Desert Campus.
In case you’re not familiar with some of their most jaw-dropping jumps, here are some more videos to perhaps inspire you to take the plunge yourself.
