I arrived in Kolomna yesterday. Aerogard is a fantastic DZ. It is also very popular.

The landing area is HUGE and has nice grass covering it. It's very flat too.

On site facilities include a snack bar, restaurant, hotel, outdoor gym, camping, video debriefing rooms, free WiFi, large covered packing areas, clean bathrooms, plenty of creeper area, benches for the spectators or waiting for your load. PA announcements are done in Russian and English. The food in the restaurant is great.

The judges' room in a room off the resturant.

The weather is high overcast and a bit chiiy, well according to my Southern California body.

All the equipment is set up and working.

Here's a takeoff run of one of the Lets. Take off
