B. A. S. E. jumping - what is it?

B. A. S. E. jumping, or how short it is called people provided bass environment, the most radical direction of parachuting.The main difference between the discipline of classical disciplines parachuting (individual and group acrobatics, dome acrobatics, precision landing, as well as artistic freestyle discipline, free-fly and a sky-surfing), lies in the fact that the jumps are made not with the aircraft, and withstatic objects, the height of which in some cases can range from 40 meters to more than a kilometer differences in mountain areas.Abbreviation B. A. S. E. just contains the first letters of the words that describe the objects from which jumps are made: B building (the building), A antenna (antenna), S span bridge (bridge spans), E earth (mountains).

Another difference B. A. S. E. is used equipment.Standard parachute pack allows in case of failure of the main parachute unhook the main canopy from the harness and put in place a reserve parachute (spare tire).Tilt Wheel, in turn, can be automatica

lly entered into force special safety device on loss of consciousness Paratrooper case.The height above the landing area can be controlled by a paratrooper with the help of special devices with an audible alarm and display turnouts, giving understanding about the intersection of high-rise safety barrier.In short, the modern parachuting is a multilevel system of checks and protective measures, plus the required routine inspection of parachute systems and AAD.In addition, the health of parachutists jumping checked before carrying out the special administrators airfields.

have beyserov behind only one parachute, a safety device is actually eye and skills acquired earlier.

Next detail that distinguishes B. A. S. E. jumping, is diametrically opposed approaches to perform jumps security.Let us explain:

on Rules parachuting jumps are performed from a height of not less than 1000 meters above the landing area.This situation exists, to the parachutist, decreasing in freefall at speeds of + - 50 m / sec.(Approximately 200 km / h), it has 15-20 seconds to make a decision and appropriate action in the event of a parachute or other force majeure.

have parachutist performing a jump from a height of one hundred meters, this reserve is not provided in advance.Nevertheless, certain safety precautions in this case must follow.This discipline has its own strict regulations.This results in special requirements for packing parachutes, has its own requirements for the implementation of the technique and the choice of jumping prospective landing sites.In this case, unwritten laws are recognized necessity, devoid of formalities, and allowing, nevertheless, freely expressed their will.

modern history Basie began in the 80s of the last century.Then the most advanced parachute classics of the genre first began to make jumps from cliffs in North America and in the fjords of Norway.For jumping while used standard parachute systems.Steep cliffs in mountainous areas allow it to do more or less safe.But in the early 1990s, the development of technical progress has led to the emergence of special equipment, and a new direction has been rapidly gaining popularity around the world.At the moment the parachute B. A. S. E.-systems can perform jumps without consequences for health facilities with a height of forty to fifty meters.This, by the way, the owners are interested in high-rise buildings after the sensational terrorist attack of 11 September in New York.Said event made to look at the B. A. S. E. more than seriously.Now B. A. S. E. gear is considered as a real opportunity to ensure the evacuation of high-rise buildings in case of need.And perhaps, in the near future, this experience will be widely applied.
