Iran's first skydiving centre also open to fairer gender

PAAviation recently opened the world's first Muslim skydiving school in Tehran. In accordance with Islamic regulations, a team of female instructors have also been employed to facilitate local women's' enjoyment of the thrill of skydiving.

Iran has one of the youngest populations of any country in the world. (Tehran's population clocks 14 million alone) and being Iran's only skydive centre the demand will be significant.

The political and historical significance of this event extends to the center's exclusive use of a brand new Britten-Norman Islander aircraft, the first western - made plane supplied to Iran since the Islamic revolution.

PA Aviation provides British and European instructors with full international certification to ensure their students are trained in a safe and highly professional manner.

Sky-dives are pre-booked. A private villa with pool has been allocated as accommodation for jumpers and transport will be provided.
Jumps typically take place from an altitude of 10000feet with freefalls of 300kph.

A professional skydive cameraman is available to shoot the jumps, upon request. The drop zone can be viewed at the following address:

The centre is approved by the Iranian sports federation, Iranian Civil Aviation Organisation, Iranian women's institute and the Iranian ministry of culture.
