Annual membership renewal

Manny dropping show jumpers: Nico Cilliers, Tertius Jones and Ettienne Bosch over the Kwa Thema Sports Grounds on 30 December 2008

Annual membership fees for the year to 31 March 2010 become due on 1 April 2009.

Membership fees will be set at a board meeting being held on 6 March 2009 and communicated to members via clubs, email listservs and the PASA website by Monday, 9 March. Please keep an eye out for these notices.

Renewing and new full members are to complete General Application - Form 2 and submit to the admin office via post, fax or email along with proof of payment. The updated membership form will be available from and on the documents page of the website from 9 March. Please keep an eye out for these notices.

Members are encouraged to submit their forms and payments directly and not via a drop zone. If you are not applying for a new licence or rating nor renewing an existing rating, you need only complete and submit Page 1.

Please note:

  • All students not covered by temporary membership are liable for full PASA membership before being permitted to jump.
  • All A, B, C and D licence holders are liable for full PASA and Aero Club membership before being permitted to jump.
  • Rigging rating holders who are not active jumpers are liable for full PASA membership, before being allowed to exercise the privileges of that rating.

Licence/Rating applications and rating renewals: Chief Instructor (CI) to check logbooks and conduct necessary briefings and tests. Relevant jump numbers and/or dates to be completed. CI to initial and sign where required. Ratings that are not renewed will be marked with the suffix “U” (uncurrent) on the membership card.

A CI should only verify ratings of rating holders that use those ratings at his DZ. All rating renewal documentation must go through a DZ and be signed off by a CI. Rigging ratings must be checked and verified by a Senior or Master Rigger.

No logbook - no ifs, no buts, no renewal or issuing of ratings!!!

Members are welcome to start submitting payments and forms from 9 March. A list of paid-up members will be posted on the website at under “Members” on 1 April and will be updated regularly. Only members whose names appear on this list, or who can provide proof of payment, will be permitted to skydive from 1 April 2009.

During the first few weeks following renewal, weekly batches of cards and certificates will be sent overnight to drop zones. Thereafter, they will be posted to member's postal addresses. Please ensure that you indicate your home DZ on your application form.

When renewing, it is very important to tick your preferred discipline/s. The SSA allocates funds according to these selections.
