    Video: Daring Duo Leap from World’s Tallest Building

    In an event that claimed the new Guinness World Record title of Highest Base Jump from the Tallest Building, skydiving world champions Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet took the jump of a lifetime off the 828-meter Burj Khalifa in Dubai, a feat almost three years in the making.

    The jump was sponsored by Skydive Dubai, the leader in extreme skydiving and no stranger to setting Guinness World Records after recording the world’s smallest parachute jump earlier this month. Launched in 2010, they offer a platform for extreme athletes to push the limits of the sport of skydiving. The company prides itself on its 100% safety record, crediting the dedication of the people involved and a “practice makes perfect” mentality.

    To prepare for the Burj Khalifa jump, Fugen and Reffet went through a series of intense training programs, first in Switzerland by base jumping off a mountain of similar height to the tower, and then in Dubai by base jumping out of helicopters.

    The tower itself was prepared for the jump by the construction of a 3 x 1-meter platform at the very top of the pinnacle, which took three days to install. Construction time was limited due to weather concerns, and great care was taken to ensure the building was not damaged in the process.
