Aircraft

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to jump the massive military plane, the Antonov-72. Definitely, it is the best plane for skydiving!

It takes 60 people to 4,700 metres in 6 minutes! The exit from tailgate is smooth and comfortable. The Ukrainians set a National record 50-way, 4 points from the An-72 in 2016.
