VIDEO: SkyDive Dubai announce Fly Gyro experience
What’s On announces the arrival of Fly Gyro at Skydive Dubai a new way to see Dubai from the sky. The gyrocopter experience costs Dhs999.
Skyhub, part of Skydive Dubai, have introduced a brand new flying experience for UAE thrill-seekers… Fly Gyro.
Say ‘gyrocopter’ and you may think of James Bond zipping around the skies in one in the 1967 film You Only Live Twice. And judging by the teaser video, the Dubai Marina experience is equally as cool.
Flight time is around 20 minutes and takes you from the Skydive Dubai HQ near Dubai Marina, over The Palm, up to Atlantis, Burj Al Arab and JBR. In total, the experience lasts around one hour, which includes safety briefing. A fully glass ceiling guarantees 360 degree views of the landscape below.
There are currently two gyrocopters running trips and each is a two-seater: you in the back and your pilot in the front. Photos and videos are included in the Dhs999 package.
Skyhub are taking bookings now by calling 056 406 9630.
The arrival of Fly Gyro adds to the multitude of ways to see Dubai from the sky. Seawings is perhaps one of the most popular. The seaplane tours operate from the Creek and takes 40 minutes to run the entire length of the city, as well as Downtown. Beyond that, there is also hot air ballooning with Balloon Adventures, which takes off at the SkyDive Dubai desert campus, as well as Heli Dubai‘s 22-minute helicopter tours.
Failing that, you could just jump out of a plane at SkyDive Dubai.
DON’T WORRY, IT WON’T END LIKE THIS…
