From now until Friday March 31, you can conquer your fears and make your ultimate bucket list dream a reality as you catch the desert landscapes from an aerial view during this tandem skydive.

Here, an experienced instructor will be securely attached to you by a harness. After a brief training session and once kitted up, get ready to board your aircraft, where you’ll fly up to your jump altitude. Feel the adrenaline rush through your veins as you jump off the plane from over 10,000 feet high.

You will freefall for about 60 seconds, where everything will feel like you’re on a whirlwind rollercoaster. Your instructor will then deploy the parachute and slowly glide in the air, allowing you to take in the fantastic views. The landing takes about five to seven minutes, after which you will safely touch base.
