How high will we fly?
For tourists, who are indulging in the Seaplane Tour of Dubai, your plane flies at a height of 15,000 feet, and that is nearly 2.8 miles distance from the ground level. However, a typical commercial aircraft flies at an altitude of 31,000 to 38,000 feet which is about 5.9 to 7.2 miles high. To get clear visibility of the vast landscape at the same time not to get encircled by clouds, the pilots of Seaplane prefer this height of travel. It gives a comfortable journey without compromising your safety. Also, it guarantees an astounding feeling which you never had before.
How many people are allowed per flight on the seaplane?
In a seaplane, you can allow a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 9 people to take part in the tour. This excludes the pilot as he or she will be having a separate seat obviously. Due to factors like the plane’s weight and space, the number of people cannot go beyond nine. Since it is operated for tourism, almost all the adventure-seekers go for sharing. It is a bit economical and time-saving rather than going without sharing. Here, the travellers are recommended to reach the starting point, 30 minutes in advance to finish the necessary checks and formalities. Once it is done, you can depart and enjoy the wonderful vistas of Dubai.
What happens if it rains on the day?
Please remember that flight's take-off only if weather conditions are promising. When there is an extreme weather condition, the trip will be cancelled for the day. However, it is the chief pilot’s decision to fly or not. Based on the aviation forecast information, he/she will take a decision, and the ride will commence accordingly. In most of the cases, the rain stops after a few minutes or a few hours. Once it is stopped, they will be taken to the ride. Until then, the tourists are requested to spend their time in other activities or sightseeing the nearby attractions. In case of terrible weather due to heavy rain, the ride will be postponed to the next day.
Are pregnant women allowed on board?
Pregnant women are not allowed in the Seaplane Tour of Dubai. Due to health and safety conditions, pregnant women are not encouraged to take up the ride. Since the seaplane may float in the air due to air currents, it may cause discomfort or pain to the woman who’s carrying a baby inside. Similarly, if a woman is having pain while flying, she needs to wait for the plane to land and get immediate medical aid. In some cases, pregnant women are allowed inside the plane only after getting a letter from a professional doctor that she is physically fit to travel.
Are seaplanes safe?
Since seaplanes are maintained to a high standard of safety when compared to other aircraft, it is completely safe to travel. The travellers are asked to follow the safety instructions before getting on board. In case of any doubts, you can ask your pilot or the guide (if there is one). Moreover, each plane has the necessary safety items like lifejackets, etc. When it comes to pilots, they’re well trained than normal pilots, and they skilfully handle the plane without much hassle. In Dubai, safety is the first priority. Hence, one can traverse Dubai on the air and enjoy the scenic beauty of nature.
Are the pilots certified?
Yes, indeed. After undergoing all adequate training both theoretical and practical, they will be tested by a panel of experts, and then they will be certified as a pilot. In their training, they have to study the fundamentals of aircraft and its principles, followed by varying air and water currents, and finally the safety lessons. In comparison with other aircraft pilots, seaplane pilots are more skilful and expert in handling a plane, especially in dangerous environments. Considering safety, they have to undergo rescue training above water and other adequate courses in order to gain full control and confidence.
Can we take pets?
No. Pets are not allowed in the Seaplane Tour of Dubai due to safety reasons. As we know, the seaplane is a small aircraft which can carry up to 9 members in a single ride. It cannot take any animal inside the plane, be it a small kitten or a puppy. In case of any emergencies while flying, there are life jackets available for the people, but not for pets. Similarly, it is highly dangerous for certain animals as they have a fear of heights. Thus, we request our tourists both local and foreigners to leave their pets at home or hotel and enjoy the ride without any tension.
Will we face any breathing issues?
No. You will not face any breathing issues while flying inside the seaplane. As long as the aircraft is flying at a certain altitude above sea level, it won’t affect your respiratory system. Generally, one can face breathing issues while flying in an airplane due to lack of oxygen. It happens only when the plane is reaching a higher altitude. However, you will be still safe as the plane is fully closed and supplies enough oxygen to breathe and survive. You can also consult a doctor before taking the ride and make sure you are fit to travel.
Can I carry luggage on board?
Unfortunately, you cannot carry any luggage on board. The Seaplane Tour of Dubai is a 45-minute ride, taking you to the finest views of the city. The seaplane is comparatively smaller in size to other commercial planes. And it can accommodate only 9 passengers at the maximum, so no luggage is permitted inside. But, you can bring small handbags or any other light weighted bags which don’t take big space in the plane. If you brought any luggage, you can hand over to the base station and take it back once the ride is over.
Will I get Air Sick?
Air sickness is a specific form of motion sickness, and it is nothing but a normal response in individuals. You can find out whether you’re getting air sickness through symptoms like fatigue, uneasiness, dizziness, or vomiting sensation. In order to avoid air sickness, you can prevent overeating, consuming alcohol or smoking before the travel as it may create such symptoms. However, the pilot will provide you airbags and guide you on how to use them just in case.
