Remember To Yield For The Passing Soviet Biplane

If you happen to be cruising down a Romania country road, keep a watchful eye out for old Polish built, Soviet era biplanes that might be landing directly through your path.

Although this vintage Antonov AN-2 happens to be registered to the Christian Charity Flyers, its used primarily as a parachute jump plane. The aircraft is operated by the Aerial Club which is a non-profit, apolitical organization that aims to promote and develop sports aviation. It was founded in 2003 when a group of aviation enthusiasts joined forces in an effort to bring a legal and legitimate form of aeronautical activities to the southeast part of the Romania.

If jumping out of a perfectly good airplane isn’t you’re thing, the Club also offers paragliding flights, hot air balloon riders, as well as traditional pilot training.
