Parachute Association of South Africa

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.

JBay Boogie 2014: 20 December - 4 January

Skydivers country-wide – along with a few imports - are gearing-up for another J-Bay jaunt and there is no reason to believe it will be anything less than EPIC. Year by year, EP Skydivers builds on this Boogie – the Boogie that sponsors coaching, prioritises sports and development, and now is even hosting Accuracy Nationals ON THE BEACH as pre-Boogie Cocktails! Seriously, EP – it just gets better and better.

What: The J-Bay Boogie

When: 20th Dec to 4th Jan with Accuracy Nationals on 18th-19th December as a Boogie Warm-up (Registration fee covers both events!!)

Where: The beautiful Paradise Beach in Jeffreys Bay – yep, even Accuracy Nationals will be on the beach.

Who: YOU, of course, and our ridiculously fun hosts, EP Skydivers

Contact: James (Boogie details) / Claire (FS at the boogie)

Come and experience the unparalleled hospitality of EP Skydivers at their notoriously wicked annual beach boogie.

From December 21st, Dirk Venter & Claire King, joined by Bailey Edmunds, will be at your beck and call as FS coaches and load organisers. EP will again be covering all the FS coaches’ slots (like you need more reasons than 2 weeks of jumps, beach, sun and parties). We’re on a Formation Skydiving Binge, and we want you to join us. A PAC 750XL will be flying and we’re going to fill it with FS! Yes. Again.

Whether you’re after 2-ways or 12-ways, novelty sequences, coaching or some competition, come out to J-Bay and show yourself. We want to fly with you all!

We can jump with you or assist you on the ground.

We’re calling on PASA jumpers from all levels, goals and interest groups to come and show us what South African skydiving is about at The FS Boogie of the South African Skydiving Calendar.
