A New Era of Aerial Sporting Action

This high-octane race, slated for February 28 during the Dubai Boat Show, will see jet suit pilots navigate a challenging course, marking a new chapter in aerial sports.
Sheikh Hamdan’s Visionary Patronage
Under the patronage of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Dubai Sports Council, in cooperation with Gravity Industries, will host this pioneering event. The race will feature eight contestants from different countries, including the UAE’s own Ahmed Al Shehhi.
The Birth of an Aerial Sports Phenomenon

Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council, highlighted the event as a reflection of Dubai’s ambition and energy.
Gravity Industries Leading the Charge
Gravity Industries, founded by Richard Browning, has been pivotal in bringing jet suit technology to life.
