      On any! Even in the days of test parachutist Andreev, experimental jumps were also made from 12 km. It was not for nothing that our passenger aircraft were almost everywhere banned from flying over Europe. So, to get to Cuba, you had to fly to Prague, and from there to Canada and from there to Cuba.
