This year’s Dubai Winter Festival (DWF) is going to be even more epic with it’s new format. The licensed skydiver boogie will take place this year at Skydive Dubai Desert Campus from December 27 – Jan 2.
The upcoming DWF 2015 has a new format. World class organisers in formation skydiving, freefly and wingsuit plus end of day videos, daily raffles, a film festival, New Year’s Eve and closing parties with jump tickets just AED 90! And all at our amazing Desert Campus drop zone.
New for 2015 we have added an integrated five day Advanced Freefly Skills Camp with dedicated load organisers. Also, for the first five days of the boogie (Dec 27th-31st) we are limiting the number of slots to avoid long waiting times between jumps. You must pre-register online to take part.
The weekend (Jan 1st-2nd) will be open to all with no limit on numbers. Registering online is recommended but you can also register on the day. For those who live outside the UAE, the weekend is on Friday and Saturday.
To take part in the DWF boogie all you need is a USPA A license or equivalent. Sorry, there will be no student jumping during the boogie.
Swoopers – unfortunately hop’n’pops will not be possible during the boogie.
- The DWF Advanced Freefly Skills Camp
The Advanced Freefly Skills Camp is an exclusive event open to experienced flyers of a high skill level. It will run within the boogie for the first five days. The focus of the camp is to build on existing skills in smaller dedicated groups with the aim of joining them as the week progresses. Jumps will be a mix of dynamic, sequential and angle flying.
