The aircraft they use is Antonov An-2 quaintly nicknamed Annushka’s. As you probably know Antonov An-2 is an extremely durable, light, single-engine biplane which first flew on 31 August 1947 and was the first plane designed by Antonov. It is used as a light transport, capable of carrying 12 passengers, and for parachute drops and agricultural work. Its slow-flight and STOL (short take-off and landing) capabilities make it suited for short, unimproved fields, and some specialized variants have also been built for cold weather and other extreme environments.
First time jump. First Time Jump Course is designed for those who want to try the experience of parachuting for themselves. The first individual jump is made with D-6 round parachute system (was used by Soviet Army), which will allow you to remain safe through parachute deployment and landing. You will leave the aircraft from the height of around 800 meters. Your pilot chute (stabilization) will be released automatically by static line and after 3 seconds of free fall under stabilization you will pull the ripcord to deploy your main parachute. This is one of the safest and most exiting ways to experience the true sense of adventure. Courses usually are run on Saturdays and Sundays. The course includes 3 -4 hours of training divided into theoretical and practical parts. At anytime during the course if you feel unsure or not clear about anything you have had instruction for please do not be afraid to ask questions.
Tandem skydiving is one of the most thrilling ways to make your first parachute jump. Attached to one of our professional tandem jump-master you will exit the aircraft at an altitude of 2500 – 3000 meters and enjoy a breath-taking free fall. With the tandem jump-master you will feel fully confident during the whole process of a 35-second free fall, safe parachute deployment and then floating to the ground under ram-air canopy. The instruction course takes approximately 25 minutes.
