Age to start jumping
Pursuant to the valid parachute jumping rules of the Republic of Lithuania, persons of the age more than 14 are permitted to start jumping (a written consent of parents is mandatory). However, for safety reasons, the Aero Club’s administration reserves the right to decide the candidate’s fitness for parachute jumping in each individual case.

- drop at an airfield bar to have a cup of coffee
- play table tennis
- play volley-ball at a play area
- swim in the airfield pond
- to make shashlik at a rest place

Should the scheduled jump fails to take place by bad weather, the heard jump instruction costs nothing (thus, the travelling expenses are compensated). All the received information is valid for one month period.
