Azerbaijan Skydiving Can't Post

Firstly I must apologise for this post not being in Russian, but I thought I would get a better response in this forum, to my question, than anywhere else.

I have started Russian lessons, but I haven't got to the section where I can ask about skydiving.

I am working a living in Baku. I've been asking around about jumping over here and have had various responses from locals. The closest lead I've had is from my fencing instructor who said his friend, a Russian military parachute instructor, told him that there is skydiving at a heliport near Zabrat in Baku. Can anyone with some local knowledge confirm this? Or does anyone know of anywhere else you can jump in Baku or close by?

спасибо (I hope that says thank you)

dude, I'm from Baku, and I'd like to strongly discourage you from trying skydiving in Azerbaijan, especially if it has anything to do with the military. I know the attitude toward safety that exists over there... Please don't kill yourself.

Frodo, do you really think that military skydiving school is not good enough?
I'm talikng about jumping with round parachutes (D-6) :)
Sure, if you are going to get an AFF course, I wouldn't recommend to do that with military guys...

i would think that a civilian aff course in baku is not much different then in u.s.
it should pretty much be the standard model regardless of who teaches it. i can see how old school military training approach can take all the fun out of it though...
jumping with round parachutes on the other hand will suck with military or civilians. i don't think anyone without significant experience and ability to spot for themselves should ever jump with a round parachute, especially d6. that is based on what i saw and heard about jumping those rags.
all of it is irelevant to someone with d licence. he just needs to get a ride. can he tell a bad mi8 and a drunk pilot when he sees one? not to offend great pilots and skydivers of azerbaijan.Smile

yeah i agree with this. i was referring to taking a skydiving course over there. Sure, if you're experienced and have your own rig (which the original poster does), then it'll be fine.

Its funny how you crapped all over your homeland just because you failed to comprehend the original post.

i did understand what he said, what i failed to realize is that he already had a D-license (my bad). I don't think what I said was entirely misplaced though, it doesn't hurt knowing about the local attitudes.

Be extra careful and don't take things for granted, is what I'm saying. (as opposed to your inappropriate "crapping the homeland" thingCrazy. If anything, it's the well-deserved criticism of the homeland.)
