Parachutes and equipment

Starting with the first jump on the soil of Yugoslavia in 1925 and the first Yugoslav Dragutin Dolanski who did it the following year, parachuting developed rapidly. It achieved real affirmation with the opening of the first "Ditrich and Knebl" parachute factory in Inđija in 1933. The most glorious days of parachuting in Yugoslavia were marked by the appearance of local aero clubs after the war.

Therefore, it is not surprising that this collection deserves a place in the Aeronautical Museum as the epitome of a segment of the aviation industry that contains over fifty different parachutes, paragliders, paragliders and other parachute equipment. Parachutes were mainly used in sports aero clubs throughout the former Yugoslavia. The second segment of the collection is represented by parachutes that were in use in the Yugoslav People's Army, the Army of Yugoslavia, the Army of Serbia and Montenegro and the Army of Serbia.

The most represented are parachutes from the "Franjo Kluz" factory from Belgrade, successors of the factory from Inđija. However, apart from parachutes produced in Serbia, you can find parachutes from Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany, USSR and the USA. The collection contains almost all types of parachutes: landing, school-training, sports, reserve, rescue, braking and cargo. 
Among them there are parachutes with square and round dome, wing-type parachutes, etc.

As for related equipment, the Aeronautical Museum stores parachute packing kits, bags, tether systems, covers, stabilizers, pilot parachutes and other equipment.
