Asociatia Club Sportiv Skydive Transilvania
NGO in 2009, a Sports Club skydiving parachuting present development in Transylvania, the Romanian Aeronautical Federation affiliated to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale and authorized by USPA (United States Parachute Association) to act as a skydiving school and issue licenses for skydiving.
The concept of this association was created in the mind of an airline pilot, Frederic Largange initially Carpatair and Wizzair now, in 2007, when he stepped threshold Cluj-Napoca city, was immediately in love with Cluj. He is also a parachutist, so he wanted to continue his work, but having no where, prepared a well thought out plan, on the parachute jump. Since the ability to move anywhere in the country to do 2-3 jumps was little, because the little time you have at your disposal and impairments in speech, then. So he began researching to come into contact with paratroopers from Cluj and gave a final Doru Baciu parachutist instructor, at that time working on Total Air (firm parasitism in Ploiesti) and volunteer at Romanian Air Club. The proposal to make being an association seemed interesting, especially for the big request from Cluj and Transylvania to practice this sport aircraft every weekend. Most of the willing are between ages 16-55 years, with no possibility of parachuting in the Transylvanian depression, to satisfy the thirst for adrenaline, because there is no opportunity at that time. The association is non profit and non governmental purpose to develop Romanian parachuting to international standards of involving as many people interested in the sport.
So we started slowly to build our concept of a parachute jump from an airplane in the whole year, as often as possible.
Algirdas Barteska, pilot line and the smile idea to fly planes from which to jump and so was joined our association. In 2008 the first steps were materialized.
Our goal is to develop this branch, over time, and to be internationally known, especially as we chose a name with historic and symbolic resonance.
In April 2009, we have started work on a plane rented from Lithuania type Piper Seneca Pa-34, weighing 1800 kg, twin engine with a capacity of 6 seats for paratroopers plus the pilot course, which has yield climbing to 3,500 meters in 15 minutes using fuel LL100, which was piloted by Algirdas and Daniel Burian and help coordinate flight Micea Andres reservist military aviation fleet commander. Currently team drivers was increased.
We use parachute jump in tandem (instructor with the passenger) SIGMA, the safest in the world market, highlighted by Tandem instructors Cuibus Nicholas, Gabriel Pop and Entertainment. Facility to save time by registering shift from equipment until after landing electronically. the highest quality, ensuring Frederic, Oana Oros, Andy Däubler, Todorut Michael Ciprian Oltean and from time to time and Entertainment, in the shortest time possible. That means involving a paratrooper cameraman, who could surprise your smile of joy in freefall.
Art Zet visited us with his film camera, captured some images from 2009 and has been with us from the ground to capture more detail jumps.
Besides you or access the jumps for fun almost every person up to 100 kg body weight and with few exceptions up to 110 kg, regardless of nation, gender, creed or political affiliation, we also parachutists to join us for lifting sports mastery, putting them with the airplane and parachutes by the USPA school auturizata affordable dues if they become members, thus obtaining some fecilitati. Thanks to the support of the administration Lac Luncani, to use the grass runway and some of the infrastructure to enable us to operate, all AUTHORITIES involved for timeliness, especially Mr. Rotaru Cristian provide from 2011 all facilities for a "Drop Zone" in infrastructure development and aviation enthusiast parasitism another macaw Ionut buying a Cessna 182-B, which we use today.
I purchased parachute equipment leap necessary equipment leaps depending on requirements, organize national competitions, European and international on different branches of skydiving as evidence classic precision landing (accuracy) and acrobatics (style), and in the future and evidence relative the work in freefall (RW), relatively dome work (CRW) swoop, wingsuit, freefly. We offer demonstration jumps to promote this sport for development.
Currently we perform work on the airfield Luncani a field near the military airfield in the town of Luna, rented plane, parachute rented own equipment and accessories needed jump in tandem, school and individual training.
