Get your Ratings at Skydive Dubai and Leave the Desk Job Behind

Words by Seán Hahessy

Skydive Dubai desert campus


If you’ve ever dreamt of leaving the 9-to-5 behind and becoming a professional skydiver, you’re definitely not alone. Anyone who has ever finished an AFF course has probably considered it at one time or another. So what’s stopping you from hanging up the shirt and tie for good?

We're back up to our usual tricks here at Skydive Dubai after the hot summer months, and to help with that career move, Skydive Dubai Desert Campus is running coach, AFF, and tandem ratings courses from September until November. 

There are obvious advantages to leaving the desk job behind - An office at 13,000 feet, hanging out at the dropzone (and getting paid to do it), a relaxed working environment, and most importantly, introducing people to the sport you love as a coach, AFF or tandem instructor.

For more information or to sign-up you can get in touch with the Desert Campus using the contact form on the Desert Campus briefing page, and choose the relevant course option.

Leave the 9 to 5 behind and measure life in altitude, not hours.
