Ukrainian DZs

Recommended Posts

I've looked, surfed, etc. for Ukrainian DZs. I only find about 6. I want to bring one of my rigs on my spring trip. (Been there 2* so far this year, another trip at Xmas.) I'd like to find more useful info about the DZs, people who've been there, etc. Prolly do most of my jumpin at the DZs around Kiev, but would love to find a DZ nearest to L'viv/L'vov. Any info would be helpful, anyone? If you speak Russian, it is ok - this forum doesn't seem to support typing cyrillic in UTF-8 or Unicode so I'll try to transliterate. ECLEE BbI TOLKE GOVOREET NA RUSSKOM, ETO XOPOWO - GDYE PARASHOOT B Ykpaina? CPACEEBO. My Russian is poor, Ukrainian hardly at all - but i can translate effectively with software when necessary.

as far as I know, there's only one DZ near Lviv, and I think I can find its coordinates for you... but the problem is that Ukrainian dropzones usually do not work at winter time, even the biggest ones near Kiev. the main point is that not many people want to jump in cold weather.

however, last winter it was possible to jump near (my native:)) Dnepropetrovsk - on the wonderful DZ Mayskoye, that looks and feels as if it's somewhere in Switzerland:). I mean it - it you visit Ukraine currently, you MUST see it:).

anyway, I'll find you some contact from Lviv, and you'll be able to if your wish to jump there come true or not...

Greetings! I'm sorry for my poor Russian, It is SO much easier to type in cyrillic than to transliterate to latin characters.

I am very happy if you know where there is a DZ near to Lviv, thank you very much! I bought a home in Staryava near (Mostiska Dva). I like jumping in cold weather-it is not bad-I have 2 gloves! I want to see Mayskoye (and also Dnepropetrovsk), I like Switzerland! Thank you very much for your informations!

Such a beautiful country!

Here is the web site of the DZ near Lviv - http://extreme.lviv.ua/ but it's all in Ukrainian, so here are contacts from the site, maybe some of these guys will be able to answer you in English.

Valery (aka ZIPPO), zippo(dog)extreme.lviv.ua, icq900100 , phone 8 050 6687717
Oksana (Hoks), hoks(dog)extreme.lviv.ua, icq 299972, 8 050 3705362
Victor, kastorskiy(dog)extreme.lviv.ua, icq 739996, 8 068 5103591



It's great that you have two gloves:). But the point is that they may just don't want to take off their plane - just because it's normal practice for most of local dropzones to interrupt their activity in winter time.

But I have good news for you anyway! I know for sure that there are air balloons somewhere by Lviv, and they drop skydivers sometimes! I think that the guys from the DZ must have some contacts of this enterprise:).

Also in Carpathians mountains - on some ski resorts - you can jump from some kind of paramotor... I just have no idea how this thing is called correctly:). Again, I could give you some info about the guy who usually organizes these events, but I have no idea how interesting such fun jumps may be for you:)...

I hope I can type in cyrillic here - I am using character encoding "Cyrillic (Windows-1251)".

Thank you both so much for your letters, it is very pleasant for me to receive such helpful informations. I am sorry my Russian is so bad, I have only been learning for 6 months. I need to begin studying Ukrainian (& Polish also), because my home is less than 1 km from Polish border I think. Lviv is a very beautiful city. I have a friend (from Áóñò³â) who goes to university there in Lviv studying ecology. I am always very happy to meet new friends.

Oksana, I went to your website, it is VERY cool! I found your AFF video, verrry nice! In ñøà/usa I have USPA 'B' license (intermediate). My rig I will bring is a vector. Yes I have an AAD (Cypres). Of course I will bring my logbook and license and packing card. I am curious what else I might need to bring so I am legal to jump in Ukraine? I may bring my second rig with me also, to sell if anyone is interested or even just to leave at my home in Ukraine.

I think I will next be in Ukraine 20-30 of December. As soon as I can find good work, I wish to move to Ukraine permanently. I will hope to do many jumps there! B|
yours,

It's a little off topic and difficult to explain, but I'll try. I think perhaps it is something to do with what's called 'pioneer spirit'. I don't know how that term would translate. I see many exciting opportunities for Ukraine as a young country. Building infrastructure, solidifying position in the world, such things are exciting (for me). Ukraine has freedoms my country will never see again, because the sheeple have given them away. Yes, I have many Ukrainian friends and I have spoken with many Ukrainian people and I do understand where some people may consider Ukraine 'not as much freedom' as I may think. Some of my Ukrainian friends and I are very close. On the whole, for me, after many years of travelling and visiting many different places, much careful research & planning, I know Ukraine is where I wish to be. B|

Devi, I am glad you liked the video and the web-site :) Both me, and my friends, who made this site almost out of nothing, were happy to hear that :)

When you are in Lviv, please, call or contact me somehow so that I could inform you whether the jump season is still open in Tsuniv (Öóíèâ). Yes, I think that the documents you mentioned in your post are quire sufficient, however, I will ask, and if different, I'll inform you.

I am also happy that you wish to stay in Ukraine. I travel a lot, but any way coming back to Ukraine is always striking :) in all possible meanings!

Ukrainian are very hospitable! Don't hesitate to call me if you need a guide around a city! See you soon and have a nice trip to Ukraine! ;)

I had a pretty cool exit yesterday doing V.R.W. with my FreeFly coach. For me, I normally bomb out of the plane into a sit. This time, I tried something new. I transitioned from my front loops to a roll, and then into a sit. Yes, I have video. When I put it from my camera to my computer, I will try to post this exit tomorrow.

Dave. On behalf of all those people who speak both Russian and English, may I ask you to write only in English. Russian-spelled English is good for fun, but do not take it too seriosuly. Guys are joking! (ãîíÿò!!!).
