5th DIPC, Dubai - Thank you


A huge thank you must go to His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammef Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Sports Council for his continuing Patronage, sponsorship and support of the Dubai International Parachuting Competition without which none of this would have been possible.

Also a thank you to the Emirates Aerosport Federation (EAF) and Skydive Dubai and the various committees and people who worked so hard to make this a success.
