The reconstruction of the Saratov Aviation Club DOSAAF named after Yu. Gagarin, but his work does not stop.

In early July, at the Dubki airfield, an open championship of the Saratov region in parachute jumping for accuracy of landing took place, dedicated to the 60th anniversary of Yu.A. Gagarin into space.

These competitions, which brought together athletes from Saratov, Samara, Ulyanovsk, Volgograd and the Moscow region, were held by the DOSAAF aeroclub with the support of regional and local authorities and other interested organizations.

The magnificent “flying” weather during all three days of the competition and the venerable composition of the participants presupposed a stubborn struggle for the title of the best “tochnist” and the best team. And so it happened.

As a result, the victory was celebrated by the athletes of the Ulyanovsk flying club DOSAAF: Sergei Kosinsky, Alexander Evplov and Vladimir Tselovalnikov. The prize-winners also included the guest teams – Samara-CSKA (second place) and Samara (third place). The strongest in the individual competition was Alexander Evplov from Ulyanovsk.

Competitions on the last day flew, so to speak, outside the airfield. The first ten athletes from the final protocol of the individual classification received the right to make a jump in the Park of the Conquerors of Space. Parachutists stretched an air bridge from the flying club, where Yuri Gagarin learned to fly, to the Space Conquerors Park, where he landed. Perhaps today’s boys will also go this way.

Sports passions played out, as mentioned above, against the background of active construction. On the initiative of the Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin, the long-awaited reconstruction began in the Gagarin flying club. The renovated office building has already taken shape. Construction of two warm hangars for flight equipment is underway on the field, issues of obtaining Yak-18T aircraft are being worked out, the airfield is equipped with new modern lighting equipment, the runway is being reconstructed, social living conditions at the airfield are improving for athletes and spectators. By September, it is planned to complete the first stage of the aeroclub reconstruction and begin the main final stage.
