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.
PASA members are reminded that annual membership renewal falls due on 1 April 2015.
All current members with a valid, listed email address should have received an email renewal reminder on 20 March, containing a link which you will need to click on in order to update your data online.
If you have not received your renewal notice or, if you did not provide an email address on your last renewal form or, if your email address has changed in the past year, please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org confirming your correct email address. Please remember to also check your spam/junk folders.
For renewals to be processed, both payment and the completed online renewal are required.
Drop zones may not permit you to skydive from 1 April 2015 unless your name shows on the membership list on the PASA website (note, the list will show members in the current year until 31 March). If you have completed the above steps and your name does not show on the list from 1 April, please contact email@example.com to check.
