A tandem jump with an instructor is considered the safest of all types of jumps, because all questions are taken over by an experienced instructor with more than 1000 jumps, and you just have to enjoy the whole range of positive emotions and beautiful views.

Association “PARASKUF” conducts parachute jumps at the Chayka Airfield, which is located 5 km from Kyiv.

To make the first jump, you must pre-book for jumps a few days in advance by phone +38 067 212-21-22, clarify all questions and plan your time for a jump. Athletes can come to the airfield without an appointment.

If weather permitting, our parachute club is open all year round. The active, warm jumping season starts in April and ends in late October. The rest of the month we focus on the weather, we make jumps under suitable weather conditions.

В теплое время года (с апреля по ноябрь) прыжки с парашютом в Киеве выполняются в пятницу, субботу, воскресенье и праздничные дни. In winter, we jump on Saturday and Sunday if weather permits.

  • If you are seasick, then you need to breathe deeper and warn the instructor about this so that he does not make sharp maneuvers under a parachute.
  • If you have a stuffy nose, follow these simple steps: hold your hand over your nose, close your mouth tightly, exhale, open your mouth. Perform the same steps during takeoff or after opening the canopy if you feel any discomfort. They will help compensate for the pressure. Also, if you have a runny nose, be sure to rinse your nose well with vasoconstrictor drops before jumping.

We do not recommend you to eat a lot before the jump, but you should not be hungry either. Any vegetable dish or soup will be good. Drinking any kind of alcohol before the jump is strictly prohibited!

The statistics of injuries and accidents for tandem jumps are extremely small. But you need to understand that parachuting is an extreme sport.

All parachute systems at Chayka Airfield are equipped with a reserve parachute, which an experienced instructor opens when necessary. All tandem instructors have special emergency response skills and experience in reserve parachute management, without which it is impossible to obtain a tandem master license.

Moreover, all parachute systems are equipped with a safety device that automatically activates the reserve parachute if the descent rate exceeds the permissible speed at an altitude of 600 meters, and the instructor did not act.

The weight limit is 120 kilograms, which is the maximum load on the parachute system for a tandem instructor with a passenger.
