Skydiving in Singapore 2 day event Can't Post

$1,388 SGD or $1,130 USD for package 1
$2,588 SGD or $2,120 USD for package 2

I wonder how many people will actually show up for this!? I guess since it's such a speciality jump and granted they do throw in some tunnel time, but still very pricey!

Available Packages for the tandem skydive for mass public on 15th dec and 16th dec over the duration of the indoor Skydiving World Championships!

Book now at sky@iflysingapore.com to avoid disappointment.

Last booking date is on 13 Dec 2012.
Pre-registration is required.

Skydive from 10,000ft over Sentosa! First ever skydive on the beach in Singapore. Make your dream of skydiving comes true in Singapore with this once in a lifetime experience and it may not happen again in Singapore! See you in next week!

I thought you couldn't normally skydive in Singapore and had to go to Thailand to do the activity. I guess if its a one off event to jump in your own country I can see the attraction.

Yes, that is correct. Usually everyone has to come to Thailand to jump or the next closest DZ in Australia.

Apparently there is a lot of response and feedback so they have opened another option for tandems which is $999 SGD or $820 USD to do a tandem and one flight in the tunnel.

Also new news is that D licensed skydives may also jump during these 2 days and land on the beach in singapore, but costs $2,400SGD for the helicopter load to 10k for 3 people.

These prices are absurd.

Then dont buy a tandem.

The singapore market will accomadate it readily, they have had a lot of interest and will do well out of it.
Hopefully it will shine a bright light on skydiving, and may aid in any future endevours to get skydiving happening in Singapore more often.

Prices are not so absurd for them.

Slightly over 17% of Singaporean's are millionaires or 1 in 6 are millionaires.

Well, I'm pretty sure that jumping at 650USD a pop is one way to ensure that you remain in the 5 out of 6 that aren't millionaires... Wink
