This weekend our company DSA a.s. participated at the world cup competition PARASKI 23.-25.1.2015 which took place in Helikovice and Knezicky Vrch.
It is a combined competition of giant slalom and parachutes’ jumps on the target.
Unfortunately, because of the weather change, part of the competition related to jumps, had to be moved from Knezický Vrch to Hradec Kralove.
The airdrops were done from our helicopter AS-350B3e, registration No.: OK-DSW.
This helicopter can have up to 5 parachutes on board and climbs up to the altitude of 1100m and flies over the terrain in less than 2 minutes.
The whole flight from boarding of parachute team, gaining the parachute altitude of 1100m and coming back to boarding place takes less than 4 minutes.
Because of the speed and advantage of using the helicopter outside the airport this way of parachute is very popular for organizers of Paraski abroad.
We are very happy that we could be at the beginning of having this type of parachute here in the Czech Republic and we believe that this is the right way for organising another PAR competition.
We believe that another Paraski event will be more fortunate in regards of the weather and you will be able to see our helicopter in white mountains.
