How to make money on parachuting (part 1)

You can earn on parachuting, but so far no one. Along with other extreme sports, skydiving is primarily carried out by lawyers, middle and senior managers, IT specialists, that is, those who experience nervous and physical strain at work.
“Well, what can I say about the man who spent several thousand dollars to jump from a normally flying plane upside down with a bag of rags behind him?” – the psychiatrist jokes in the military enlistment office, looking around the disordered line of sufferers to receive a certificate of permission for parachuting. And envy the local commissar with a smile puts the stamp “healthy.” Surprisingly, among the entire team of amateur paratroopers there was not one fit for military service and, accordingly, served in the army.

Skydiving (skydiving, Eng., Dl. – “diving into the sky”) is gradually becoming a popular pastime of the Ukrainian middle class. Under this common name for almost all parachute disciplines, there are about ten different ways of hovering to the ground. Along with other extreme sports, skydiving is primarily carried out by lawyers, middle and senior managers, IT specialists, that is, those who experience nervous and physical strain at work.

For the opportunity to take a break from the frantic pace of life and give free rein to emotions, they are willing to pay from 80 to 160 UAH per jump. According to Dmitry Karpekov, president of the PARA-SKUF Association and vice president of the Parachuting Federation of Ukraine (FPSU), almost all skydivers are people with an income above the average. They are willing to pay more for the corresponding service and infrastructure. That is exactly what Ukraine lacks so far.

According to the FPSU, in our country there are about 30 aviation sport clubs (ASK) that have permission to organize skydiving. It seems to be not so little to meet the increased demand. Meanwhile, modern dropzone (DZ, from the English. Dropzone – dropout zone), one-two and miscalculated. Most flying clubs work the old fashioned way, retaining DOSAAF’s work approaches and attitude towards skydivers. In fact, the business of paratroopers is still being dealt with either by fans of their own business, for whom profit is not the main thing, or successors to organizations that owned flying clubs before the collapse of the USSR sports structures. But, as the experience of neighboring Russia shows, not to mention the United States and Europe, very soon professionals will replace the amateurs. Anyone who is investing in the organization of a modern flying club provides a stable income in the future.
