The Best Skydivers in the World Are Invited to the 'Skydive of All Skydives' This December

Professional skydivers will be jumping out of a military plane, on top of the pyramids of Giza.

Skydiving might not be for everyone, but there’s no denying that jumping out of a plane at an altitude of over 10,000 feet is an experience more exhilarating than just about any other activity you can do. It gives off such a rush that many first time jumpers want to jump again, and again.

The good folks at Alia Parachuting and Skydiving have organised a killer event featuring the who’s who of skydiving, with heavy involvement from none other than Red Bull. From the 8th to the 11th of December, established skydivers will be flying over the pyramids of Giza and showing us their insane in-the-air skills. 

The skydivers will be arriving from 60 different countries, places very far away, including the US, Canada and European countries just to jump in what is known in the skydiving circle as “the skydive of all skydives”.

If you need any more confirmation that this event is the real deal, just have a look at some of the attendees; Red Bull-sponsored skydiving pioneer Jeff Provenzano and aerial expert Amy Chmelecki, who has countless world records and world titles to her name.

Just to add a little spice to the whole shebang, instead of jumping out of those boring tiny white planes they usually jump out of, the Egyptian Military Force will be allowing  the experienced jumpers to get out of a C-130 military plane, right above the timeless Pyramids of Giza. But that’s not the only drop zone that would create a jump to remember for a lifetime.

Imagine skydiving in places like Aswan and Luxor. With this event, Red Bull is hoping to promote the sport in Egypt, and in turn attract investors to build other certified drop zones in Egypt.

Should this event turn out to be a success, it’s likely to become an annual event, with skydiving constantly gaining popularity in Egypt, with over 70 registered skydivers at the Egyptian Federation.
