PASA is a non-profit association of members with the mission statement: "To foster, develop and
facilitate sport parachuting, in all its facets, within South Africa, in the safest and most
progressive manner, on behalf of its members."
For many people the words parachuting and skydiving conjure up images of adrenalin junkies and
daredevils with little regard for their own safety. One of the questions most frequently asked of
sport parachutists is, "who in their right mind would want to willingly throw themselves out of a
perfectly serviceable aircraft?"
In truth, sport parachuting is a disciplined sport that operates within rigidly defined and
enforced safety parameters as set out in PASA’s Manual of Procedures. This Manual has been ratified
by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) and is the basis upon which PASA has been
approved as an Aviation Recreation Organisation. The safety and training standards contained in the
manual are on a par or better than international standards and must be adhered to by all affiliated
drop zones and members in South Africa.
Pretoria Skydiving Club will be hosting Nationals 2016 from 27 April to 2 May 2016.
The bid documents are available on the documents page of this website. More information will be given in PSC's first bulletin, to be published soon.
