Skydive Dubai, a leader in extreme skydiving, has broken yet another Guinness World Record in less than a month for base jumping off the very tip of The Burj Khalifa. Skydive Dubai sponsored Soul Flyers World Champions Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet took the first leap off The Burj Khalifa, 828 meters tall, on Monday 21st April 2014, claiming the new Guinness World Record Title of the Highest Base Jump from the Tallest Building, exhibiting their astonishing base jumping skills.

The jump from The Burj Khalifa was only possible with the construction of a 3 X 1 meter platform at the very top of the pinnacle and was an immense task in itself. The structure which was recently spotted by residents and tourists, took a total of 3 days for installation with challenges faced due to weather constrictions limiting the time available for construction. Throughout the whole period, the highest safety measures were put in place to ensure the pinnacle did not get damaged.
