DUBAI (CNN) -- A man broke a world record Saturday after landing the world's smallest parachute jump.

Ernesto Gainza leaped from 4,200 meters in the air in Dubai.

Standard sized parachutes are usually between 7.43 and 18.58 square meters. The one he used measured 35 square feet, which is around 3.2 square meters.

The larger the parachute, the steadier and safer the jumper should be, according to experts.
