This post is devoted to all parachutists and those who wants to bail out.
We’ve chosen this cute air club, the wind 5 km/h allows to jump with a parachute
The club has some AN, YAK aircrafts and helicopters. People come here to balloon and play with radio-controlled air models.
“Aerial vehicle is secured”
Safety training: a volunteer is showing a proper legs position while landing.
All landing circumstances should be considered. You never know where you may land.
Quick turn demostration in the harness
It’s important to be taught how to pack a top cord and a canopy, when you do it properly, you’ll easily get from a landing point to a starting point.
A reliable An2 may land even with its engine off.
Inside AN-2 aircraft: here you’ll be told the history of this vehicle, the procedure of separation from a board. That’s the final part of training.
Preparation on a day of jumping. Each of you will undergo a rigorous health check. If a person has a heart attack or something while jumping the club will probably have problems…
These guys are waiting for a start…
Starting line: last instructions, check of safety belts and a mechanism of a reserve parachute.
When you find yourself outboard you have to count to 4 first. The canopy of a main parachute will open for this time. Soon, you’ll feel slowdown caused by deployment. If the main canopy opens fully and its contour is even you may deactivate the reserve hanging on your belly.
One of the jumpers hasn’t deactivated his reserve and now he’s flying under this “bra”…
Instructors follow the jumpers but they use special parachutes.
